Beiges Predominate in Colors
For Spring Shoes and Hosiery / ,

BY LUCY CLAIRE
Fashion Expert for Central Press and
The Herald
There is a saying that a woman
is no better dresed than her feet,
even though she be draped in sables.
This is truer today than it ever was.
Since we have broken away from the
staple blacks and tans and white,
I'hoes are playing such an important
role in the ensemble they are really
entitled to first consideration. Press
ing from the feet up is a good slogan
to go by. Unless the shoe! and
stockings are in perfect harmony
with the ensemble, the whole cos
tume is thrown out of tune.
The new shoe and stocking colors
for spring have been selected to har
monize with the new fabric colors
to so great an extent that, with the
possible exception of the grays, they
can bs worn with almost any color
in perfect taste. As biege is the
leading shade for frocks and en
sembles, and ten of the new hosiery
colors belong to the l iege family. In
other words, about three-fourths of
all the new shoe and hosiery colors,
are beiges.
Basic Colors In Hosiery
In hosiery the basic colors are
white jade, kasha beige, both
■lightly grayed in tone; tawny,
which is a little more on the tan;
honey beige, rose nude, tansan, a
tone darker than honey beige; san
dalwood, a somewhat deeper rose
beige; misty morn, a slightly mauve
shade, and marron glace, which be
longs in the class with the brownish
beige; grege and metallique, which
belong in the class with the grave.
Metallique is a shade that simulates
antique metal with a bronze tinge.
With the beige frock or ensemble,
deepening from the natural to the
light brown, any of the beige kid

pump that is especially good with
the beige frock and sunburn hose is
shown at the lower left. It is of
rose blush and marron glace kid,
giving a delightful compose of beige

tint. The lower right photo shows
