silk and fine wool are now being worp
with dainty "fronts," guimpes or nar

matching cuffs are used to complete
the illusion that the sweater is worn
over a separate blouse. In some in
stances extra neckwear accessories
are carried in a bag for use In fresh
ening up the sweater after the game,

supremacy of the tuxedo type of sweat
er Is credited with the recent revival
of the long, narrow, rolling collar.
Tills type of collar Is also appropriate
for. use with tailor-mades having the
narrow rolled revers opened to the
waist. Various other collar shapes
continue to be widely represented. and
as soon as the weather permits of the
wearing of summer dresses they should
become a factor in summer wear.
Two-toned and flowered ribbons are
to be seen on many new pieces of
lingerie and on sets described sultabl#
