Tlio oft-i'cpenlod masculine assertion that women are fickle, changeable creaturefi, dropping becoming fashions without rhyme or reasion, ig effectively contradicted by the Fall vogue for suits. Last spring, suits were anifcig the most im|X>rtunt styles and It was almoBt impossible to find o siinart wardrobe that did not include one cr more. Having worn Ihem throughout the xprini? and summer, and having thoroughly tested their convenience tiiul practical features, did women then discard this; mode? The answer Is a hearty, "No!" for they continue lo be among the .most important of fashions]. So accustomed are we to suits by now that it would be difficult to plan for a .clever winter season without them , . . and fortunately there is no need to do so this year. Tweed is the favorite fabric and with good reason. It's; s;0 warm and sturdy, so adapted for the hard knocks of u busy season and so practical for bus-.inebs and all-urourid wear. With sporty accessories it is ideal for football games; and the-country; or add a satin blouse and dressy beret ant! you can fare forth serenely confident to tea or bridge. There are many lovely domestic and imported tweeds, conspicuous among are the nubby. closely woven lexlures: with flecks of contrasting color. Herringbone effects and smooth woolens are also .seen. They come in many attractive colors among which brown predominate. Other shade-si take their inspirations from the glowing tones of Autumn foods—rich tones of copper, rust, bronze, wine or deep green. Some suits arc- also to be lound in oxford or shade:; of dark .sparkling blue. Surely there's no lack of color variety in thin collection. T\v.o «iul Three-Piece Versions At one time the wearer of a winter suit u.sed to complain thai she could JK.I wear il fur long, because the rout was .short and unsuiled to winter winds. Not so with this year's suits, however, most of which have coats thai vary from below-the-knee length to,' full-length lype.s. And for real warmth we recommend you lo the three-piece outfit which has a long coal and matching skirt, plus a con- 1 trussing jacket or vest that copies thu ; lines of a man's waistcoat. You may start the Fall season wearing the skirt | and jacket and add the long coat when cold winds start to blow. Some] times these jackets match the coat in ' fabric; more often they add a note of ccnlrast in weave or color, as when |a checked one is worn with a'mono- tone tweed coal and skirt. There are many suits of composed weaves that are "Gay Companions" indeed. Another suit version is that of the lightweight wool dress which is worn beneath a matching coat of heavier wool. • Those who like to assemble their own ensembles will choose two-piece suits with a long coat and matching skirts . . . and then will add blouses and sweaters as fancy dictates. There's no heller way of obtaining striking color combinations than this; and it's a tesl of one's ingenuity to see how many variations one may play on a Women's BROWNbilt <) eyelet blucher tie with 2*n covered wood loulevard heel.

Hiallo combination last. Brownbilt Shoe Store redness of her wardrobe? Frilly clothes? Yes, of course, but only for evening wear or holiday dates. For daytime wear she sticks to the .slogan that tailored styles are best. Two of her stand-bys are the sport coat of fin- and the tweed suit. The fur coat is likely lo be of the swagger type and is equally good in raccoon muskrat, beaver, nutria or lapin. The tweed suit is a two-piece or three- piece costume with a belted or swag- ter coat. She may have it furred or unfurred, as fancy and her pocketbook dictate. Both types are .smart this year. If her suit is a two-piece .style it will probably be of flecked v/colcn with a three-quarter or full- length coat. The three-piece suits have full-length coats and short jack- eUi or waistcoats that match or contrast with the topcoat in color and fabric. No need to comment on the usefulness of that costume. Variations On a Suit Theme If our heroine is clever and ingenious, she will create many variations cf her oiginal outfit with blouses and .sweaters;. With a brown suit, for ex- j ample, she can wear slipun or shirt- i waist style sweaters of brown, yel- I low, orange rust and vivid color com| binations. When .she wants to look ; mere drossy she wears a satin or j crepe blouse. Sets of matching' scarfs ' and berets in wool or velvet may j match or contrast smartly. For cam- Ipu.s wear .she will add a leather jacket | of suede or pig-grain to a tweed ! skirt. A cloth coat trimmed with fur j another essential and may be ol 'smooth or nubby woolen with a lux- I uriou;; collar of mink, fox, squirrel. i beaver, lupin, wolf, Persian lamb ur caracul. Of course, the school wardrobe will : include dresses of wool . . . casually smart little frocks in wool crepes, hairy fabrics, tweeds or .some of the 1 novelty woolens ... in plain colors or the gay new plaids. Little collars , of while, touches of velvet, bells and buttons of leather ... all will add to the chic of these frocks. And there will be at least one afternoon gown, probably of black crepe, for tea dates and informal evening occasions. ' A Startling Transformation When "proms" and dunces come upon the horizon our college girl will , forget her tailored self. She will be transformed into a sophisticated siren in a gown of'^learning pa.sl-jl or white .satin ... or an alluring ingenue in ruffled taffeta that will s-lini the slai- line. i A waidrobe such as we have de- I scribed is equally appropriate for the , courageous-young things who are just , entering the business world and who i know that tailored chic is a.s appro- • prite behind an office desk a.s upon a .school campus. simple theme by a clever selection of accessories. Swapper and Roofer Styles One of the mosl youthful and bo- coming of thes;<; ;;tylr;; is thut which has n reefer coal. There's something about (hot military double-breasted air with its pointed revers that imikc 1 :; its wearer stand up straighler and throw out her shoulders. Then there's the cool that hangs straight from the shoulders, scinelimos; with an inverted pleat lo give fullness . . . and the classic flared swagger coal which is so universally becoming. Many of the coals are belled and slightly blous- td; others are undecided whether to wear bells or not and settle the question by being belted in front and straight in back. The deep armhnlcs and raglan sleeves which characlcrixe separate coat fashions make their appearance in the world of nuils also. However I .sleeves; are .simple for the mosl part. | in keeping with the straight .slim lines r;f the coats. Occasionally a little full- no.s.'i i:; .seen between the wrist and the elbow, or cuffs are tucked and pleated to give a touch of novelty. Wllh Or Withc.ul Furs Many .suits rely upon their lines and fabric alone to give them beauty; many more seek the aid of appropriate furs to complete their smartness. The Bits Bad Wolf has desisted | from his wicked ways and trims many a Ftnai-l suit: polar wolf in blue tones] IF- particularly effective on rust or reddish wools. Miinkrat and raccoon, j a 1 w a y s favorite companions for ' tweeds, make frequent appearances; j beaver or lapin dyed in beaver tones ' harmonize with brcv/ns or contrast i with rus-l and green. Collars include i shawl and pouch models and are also ' cnnverlible, which may be buttoned high on cold days. I If you choose a suit of the dressier ! type it will probably be adorned with I svelte furs .such as Persian lamb, sa- i ble or flat furs; dyed in mink shades. ! & AND UP j.v terms t/nuux/i iJm- sal (,'rtJil Co. — tin-, in • f ( If It Isn't a V-8 It's Out Of Date" /""* Co, PHONE 654 UMN ^b**^S tat* 7 »« -^ ^f . / " ;..,A<::::1 presentation '£?Z- 5>' Unveiling the Picture for : FALL 9 1934' •; There's a brand new gallery of fashions ready for your inspection.
