Summertime is the time for dainty dresses that will keep you looking your cool best at the office, on weekends and on dates—the time for sheer cottons, nylon and organdy. On this and following pages, Photoplay suggests an ideal summer wardrobe to keep you looking fresh and lovely on the hottest day—a wonderful variety at prices you can afford



Cotton flattery: Janice Rule and Vera-Ellen, M-G-M stars, present two charming summer styles. Janice, currently in “Holiday for Sinners,” wears a popular classic dress with detailed bodice highlighted by tiny buttons. Skirt is the ever-popular dirndl-type. Available in sizes 10-18. Vera-Ellen of “The Belle of New York,” strikes a feminine note in a dress that frames the shoulders with a graceful shawl collar. Both the shawl collar and the skirt, of unpressed pleats, are edged in white. Sizes 10-16. Designed by Josette Walker Clothes, both cost only $14.95, come in pink and blue. At Maurice L, Rothschild, Minneapolis, Minn., and Lord & Taylor, New York, N. Y. Janice’s coolie-type hat is by Sperling. Vera-Ellen’s picture hat by Dani. Chalk-white jewelry by Marvella accents that summer tan



Nancy Olson, of Warners’ “Jim McLain,” is a beguiling picture in dimity. Top, elasticized, may be worn on the shoulders or dropped for a decollete effect. Shirred bodice, full skirt, accent the wide molded waistline. Narrow tie belt is of velvet. By Kay Winsor, in a dainty clover print in red, green or blue on white ground. Available in sizes 10-18, for around $9.00, at Saks 34th, New York, N. Y. For relaxing in the sun, the Beachcomber, of wrought iron and netting, in background. By Pacific Iron Products



PHOTOPLAY PATTERN OF THE MONTH

 

Midsummer pick-me-up: Here’s a pattern for a dress—with a four-gored skirt and a fitted bodice—that you’ll want when the sun is really beaming. Make it of cotton, silk, rayon or nylon. We suggest Burlington’s Frothylon, a puckered sheer nylon available at leading stores throughout the country. The Wedgewood blue is especially lovely; but pastels and dark colors also are available. For cool contrast, make cufts and bow-trimmed collar in frosty white pique, linen or organdy—or, if you like, the same fabric as the dress



INA MIDSUMMER MOOD

 

Joan Evans, of M-G-M’s “Skirts Ahoy” and Universal-International’s “It Grows on Trees,” models an ever popular sheath dress. In acetate and nylon—cool, washable and easy to pack—it can travel anywhere, serves all occasions. Permanently pleated from top to bottom, with rhinestone buttons, patent belt, in black or blue. By Koret of California, 10-18, $17.95 at McCreery’s, New York, N. Y., Russeks, Detroit, Mich. Joan wears a Dani hat



On cool evenings, create a dashing effect with striped lacy stole worn by Joan, above. Of wash yarn machine knit, it looks like wool. $4.95 by Barbara Carol, at Martha West, New York, N. Y.



Julia wears a frankly feminine dress in white organdy with faint black and white stripes. Color enters the picture in the mandarin collar and in the bold stripes around the billowy skirt. Wide belt is in patent. By Spears Epstein, with red, green, brown or navy stripes, 7-15. $12.95 at Foley’s, Houston, Texas. Gloves by Crescendoe, shoes by Capezio
