WOMEN WILL BE WEARING
MELBOURNE - SUMMER
# Clothes that are sensible, soft and feminine
By MARIE VRANISAN
SKIRTS will be narrower, short
coats shorter, buttons will be everywhere on frocks, hats will sweep to the right, shoes will be the low-cut
court with covered-in toe and heel.
Swim suits will be strapless.
Pedal pushers will be tremendously popular on the beaches.
Fashionable colours will be tan, caramel, navy, and black.
Navy will be worn with pink, soft gold and burnt straw tonings.
Sheer black frocks will be just right for summer days.
Many of the patterned cottons will feature black in their designs.
Strapless swim suits are good news ' " foi the young girls.
- How often have they after a holi-
day or week-end sunbathing found ' their beautiful tan marred by two narrow white strips . . . where the bathing straps ran.
Their new strapless evening gown has often had to give way to a less glamorous model just because of the tell-tale swim-suit straps.
Those days have gone now.
The girl with the not-too slim or not too-shapely legs will find she has been specially catered for this sum- mer with pedal pushers.
These are ideal for her.
Most young girls will also want one of the smart heavy linen jackets being displayed at a city emporium.
They are in attractive shades and can be allied to many different skirts.
The only similarity between Mel ' bourne and New York fashions is
that the young Australian girl may
wear her blouse outside her shorts or
pedal pushers at the beach. And that is only for coolness.
