TWEEDS AT BELMONT

For fifty years the opening day at Belmont Park has brought out the first fall fashions in the East. This year there was no doubt about the favorite for suits and coats: tweeds—win, place and show

Opening day at Belmont Park was crisp and blue—perfect weather for new fall tweeds. Photographer Toni Frissell, mingling with the fashionable tide of spectators from grandstand to paddock between races, caught a surprisingly unanimous preference for light-surfaced tweeds in slim-line coats and suits, most of them only slightly fitted to the figure. Each wearer stamped her own personality on tweed. Fine-patterned tweeds were formally accessorized with jewelry of pearls and gold, and small hats of matching fabric. Nubby-surfaced tweeds were worn with big brilliant earrings, and no hats at all.
