How to Be the Best-Dressed Woman Anywhere

How to Be the Best-Dressed Woman Anywhere was a Pamphlet Offered by the News, Now Known as the New York Daily News, and Its Clothing-Advice Would Be Welcomed by Some of Today's Elegantly- Dressed Ladies

The emphasis is on simplicity and modesty of dress with an eye to packing lightly, as well as on respecting  local traditions in foreign countries. Bare arms, shorts and short skirts are not welcome in primarily Muslim locations; shoes must not be worn in mosques; large silk scarves can enhance a plain and versatile frock, while allowing one to cover her head in a church or other religious environment. In this pamphlet, there is advice on what to pack that is still timely; wearing gloves and hats is not outdated by rather extremely practical and healthy while on a trip or going out in one's hometown.
