IVAC AMD WAVJES UNIFORMS
The,-large ntmber of women inducted into the WAC, WAVES arid SPAR since last summer brings into proniiiieiice the question—"What am I to wear this summer?" With the army and navy boys dress doesn't cut much figure. No dress at all would really suit them best. But not so our lady warriors, marines and navy personnel. With them the summer uniform is immensely important.
With the WACs there's to be no departure from last summer's garb—army khaki blouses, skirts and jackets, as last season. But the WAVES' are being asked by higher-ups to dress in seersucker uniforms. Nice and cool—but how about looks? Gray and black striped seersucker, short sleeved, a fitted dress with kick-pleat skirt—will or will not this dress accentuate the more prominent curves and make the WAVES look like housemaids? Coast guard SPAKs are scheduled to don this same uniform, which will be in strong contrast to last summer's hot and heavy navy blue cotton gaberdine uniforms.
