Torn from a 1936 fan magazine were these fashion tips from Elsa Schiaparelli (1890 – 1973):
"Elsa Schiaparelli, Paris' leading fashion authority of the 1930s tells how to dress inexpensively and yet look smart as a star.":
"Cheap jewelery should never be worn unless it happens to be something that you positively know suits you. Pearls, including cheap ones, are always in good taste."
"Women can learn from men and improve their 'chic'. A man wouldn't think of wearing a tight shoe or one that didn't harmonize with his suit."
