Shiny Styles Also Wash By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Th« glltery look, often reserved for holidays only, is everywhere this year. Gold and silver shine on dresses, shoes ,hats and gloves. The Oriental influence,. including woven metallic threads for the "cloth of gold" look, is a vibrant, influence on dress-up fashions. Fortunately, the golden touch *s more practical than it used to be. 'Such fashions used to mean "wear 'em until they're dirty," then throw them out. Some, notably tne metallic threads of the '30s or thereabout, developed an awful odor with wear. Now, fabric makers have con quered these difficulties and the gold look is odorless and, best of all. much of it is washable. Naturally, these fabrics that, are marked washable don't go into ihe machine. They should be dipped in and out of suds, not rubbed, wrung ov twisted. They should be hung to drip dry. When dry, they should be pressed with a cool iron, with a sheet of clean tissue paper in between as a pressing cloth. It is more essential than ever to save the washing instructions that come with ihese cloths. If, by chance, these tags are missing from some of the garments when you're buying, be sure to pick one that has a tag. Many of the gold-touched cottons. cotton-acetates, nylons and other blends can be washed in the same manner as the unadorned fabric. But gold-woven scarves, hostess aprons, overskirts, blouses and dresses of the more fragile fabrics need the gentlest of washing. One rule that applies to all glittery fashions is to wash quickly when they get soiled or the dirt will become ingrained. LUXORA NEWS By MRS.
