COLOR will count more than ever
this year, and skillful combina
tions will be responsible for the chic
of many a costume. Milady is making
a strenuous effort alsoto match the
little details of her dress. For In
stance, just now smartly dressed wom
en are matching their dresses and suits
with- epats and gloves and adding a
touch of the same shade to their bats.
Putty-colored frocks appear with
putty-colored gloves. Gray is another
pleasing color for f rocks'and epats, and
navy blue suits with like spats are
trim. ' Chamois, white, brown and sev
eral other colors are used in a like
Beads and Oriental ornaments of prac
tically every known color and shade
may be had now, and therefore with
little effort women are able to get
beads to harmonize with the embroid
ery and other trimming on the waists
and frocks. Coral. Jade, topaz, sapphire
and all sorts of red and yellow beads
and dangling baubles are singularly
attractive with .the new Russian and
Oriental embridery trimmings.
Kew attractive, lingerie and petU-
coats of Georgette, crepe de chine and
satin feature heavy gros-grain ribbon
trimmings. Often there are rows of the
ribbon, intercepted by rows of inser

bottom of the skirts, and in other in

set at angles make the petticoats stun
