JYPICAL WRAP FOR AFTERNOON
Coat of Maroon Color Poplin.
By Betty Brown

frocks, wraps which possess as much
style as the gowns themselves. An
excellent example is a long coat of j
' maroon color poplin, which has a
quaintly gathered collar to harmo
nize with the gathered skirt.
Curiously old-fashioned in appear

are the new utility coats of covert
cloth. They are cut upon semi-fitted
unbroken lines and seem especially
novel because they are unbelted.
