"A look at all the collections shows that black is the outstanding color for afternoon and dinner. Drapings, wrappings and swathings that girdle the hips are the outstanding line. The favored fabrics are velvet, velveteen, corduroy (used horizontally, as are other striped materials) monotone tweeds, Kashas (a twill-weave fabric of wool mixed with Cashmere), and some Scotch plaids. Fur is used sparingly, most often for warmth in linings. Mole worked in opposing bands horizontally is smart and new, especially in three-quarter Canadiennes (heavy, hooded sports coats, often of blanketing or plaid)... Waists are longer and slimmer and skirts cover the knees. Front or back fullness is evident everywhere, with a soft bodice and small waist giving full value to the bust (and suggesting undernourishment)."
