Spring Styles in Women's Smart
SUITS, FROCKS, GOWNS m COATS
' " - GRAND SALONS OP DRESS Second Tloor.
' LARGEST AND FOREMOST SUIT AND WRAP STORE "WEST OF CHICAGO,
The newest in Spring styles in women's smart Suits and jaunty Jackets is flocking here daily
it's homing time for the new fashions. And the proving ground for Portland is the big salons of
dress on our spacious second floor enlarged to twice the size occupied last season. Forced to
grow by the expansion of the business they contain. You'll meet here this week an assemblage
of the city's best-dressed women, keen critics and impartial judges.
Here you will see the newest American adaptations of French modes Paris thought is ever
the quickening impulse, especially in "dressy" styles. American tailored styles have attained
a development that gives them at least equal authority with Styles from abroad. You may study
these American tailored fashions as well as costumes of home origin that are practical as -well as
An Impressive Showing Is Ready
Though not a complete array, as yet. The new styles will be unfolding as Spring advances as do the petals of a rose when the sun
coaxes. But you depend on this store for earliest forecasts of fashion, and these first inklings are of authentic .styles, selected
with a certainty that comes -with access to the jeaJouslyguarded secrets of fashion; a knowledge that has made and keeps
Olds, Wortman & King the paramount authority on dress.
It's to be a fancy season in tailored style. Put that down .as a certainty. The erstwhile severely simple tailored lines are
lost in the elaborations of plaits, shirrings and ornate trimmings tailored styles have almost the effect of frocks. No woman
need be disappointed of her cherished wish as to stylo, either the diversity of choice is so wide. There are blouse jackets in the.
soft effects so much liked; there are Etons; Suits ivith the coffee-coat effect; short box styles, and the staple fitted back coat
of semi-fitted coat. But, whatever the style, look for broad shoulders, sleeves full at top and to elbows and ending in cuff, gauntlet
or cuff effect, as a rule. But there! We could fill the page with talk of what's new. Come and see and enjoy the show, whether
ready to buy now or not.
NEW STREET SUITS.
In jacket, Eton, blouse and tightrfitting effects, in
materials of homespun, serges, cheviots, panno
Vheviots, broadcloths, "Panama cloths, mohairs
and handsome exclusive patterns in mannish
mixtures. A full color .line embracing blues,'
grays, browns, greens, tans, blacks, mixtures
and the ultra fashionable shepherd plaids and
checks. The price range is wide. No matter
whether it's the modest tailored suit at $12.50
or the more elaborate grades ranging along by
easy price steps to the aristocrat at $125.00.
Each suit is best at its price.
