Transformation of Drab Young Creature Into Person of Charm and Radiance Is Described Complexion Is
Regarded as Keynote to Solution of All Difficulties.

NEW TOR K. (Special corre
spondence.) The relation of
color to beauty is too well es
tablished to need any argument here.
Undoubtedly it has been within your
own experience to see an unobtrusive,
even drab young, creature, trans
formed into a. gay and pretty Voung
butterfly by the adoptipn of a dif
ferent color scheme.
I saw such a transformation re
cently in a friend with copper-colored
hair, who felt it her duty, for some
deep-rooted and ridicufius prejudice,
to garb herself in somber shades that
she might kill the coloring which
was hers by nature.
A stroke of good fortune and the
advice of a friend to put herself into
the hands of a woman with a repu
tation for a fine color sense and a
designer as well, led to this particu
lar girl's present reputation as a
beauty and one of the best dressed
women in New York. And, as she
admitted herself, the cost of her pres.
ent dress is no more than before the
change; if anything, less, as she had
always paid a fairly good price for
her clothes.
Play tip Your Coloring.
"Don't play down your coloring,
play it up," was the advice that was
given her. For her street suit a dull
green with mole collar was suggested.
For her evening dress a purple that
brought out the gold in her hair
beautifully. A black with a touch of
Ivory and gold was suggested for her
dinner dress, and for an evening wrap
a silver and black brocaded metal
goods, lined in palest yellow velvet,
and a dark-brown fur collar. The
result for every occasion made this
particular woman stand out from the
"People used to tell me I could look
like something if I would let a good
modiste dress me,"' she confided, "but
you know how we women are. We
all think we know what we should
wear better than any one else. It
Is foolish when you know there are
women whose life study has been the
particular gawn for the particular
type. I am convinced now that we
have prejudices that are ridiculous,
and we need to be talked out of

ways fancied I must wear a tight
fitting tailored suit, believing I was
minimizing my height and girth. At
the direction of the woman who has
reformed me I adopted the straight
line dresses, and they must be right,
judging from the compliments I get
now. which I never got before. One
discerning male made me happy by
telling me I looked ten years younger,
so they must be more youthful."
Complexion Is Keynote,
She disclosed the name of her
miracle worker as Miss Anna Scheer,
whom I found to be the dress direc

for a few good tips on color and lines,
am they apply to beauty.
ased ner if in suggesting colors
she got her cue from the color of
the hair.
She answered: No. It is more a
matter of the complexion than thfj
hair, it is a question or whether one
has healthy coloring, little, coloring,
or poor coloring. That is what one
has to work from. Green, for ex
ample, one could not adviBe for any
but a healthy complexion. Pinks re

green, which are to be the popular
spring colors, would not go so well
with an anemic or faded skin. A
hard, dead white ia not becoming in
anyone. Whites should always be
of an ivory tone, and they are good
for any coloring."
For both young and old Miss Schoer
recommends, ivory white as being
youthful fof the miss and kind to j
the older woman! But pinks, yellows,
baby blues she reserves for.the young
"Lavender is flattering to almost
every type," she added. "Particularly
nice for the gray-haired woman.
Touches of color may be added to it,
however, to please the individual
need or fancy."
The following table she recom
mended for the different types:
Red head Browns, every shade,
particularly the golden and reddish
browns; black; almost every shade of
green if coloring is good; the new
olive spring shade; jade for evening;
fuchsias and purples; tans and grays.
Blonde Blue, mostly every shade;
pink for the young and fresh; no yel
lows; lavender and lavender with
touches of blue, ivory white; black.
Brunette Black; tans and grays;
brown; yellow; lavender; rose and
pink. '
Gray hair Gray (except slate and
battleship grays, which are old
colors); lavender or purple for eve

an eye to their effect on the skin
and on the eyes. There are colors
that are extremely dulling and dis
astrous in effect. So . the same
analytical eye should be turned on
them and if one is doubtful the ad
vice of one with a good color sense
should be sought. It is surprising
the erroneous impression people have
of their own possibilities as to colors
they may wear. And colors and line
after all are much more important
in a becoming dress than material.
Recommends Straight Line.
Miss Scheer strongly advocates the
straight line for every type, the long
and the short, the narrow and the
broad, and uneven, length skirts to
play a trick of lengthening or short
ening height. Even the long waist,
not exaggerated, however, she ad
vocates for the short woman, par
ticularly now that skirts are longer.
"So many big women have the idea
that the wearing of tight-fitting
sleeves and waists and skirt bands
slenderizes their silhouettes. To the
contrary, the result is uneven bulges
here and there which are all out of
symmetry. Straight lines, looser
.sleeves, and the lengthened waist are
much more disposed to hide the su
perfluous poundage. I have seen
that demonstrated here time and
again. At first women rebel, but they
usually come back fully gratified
after wearing the new style. With
the aid of a good corset." the waist

and a good brassiere, an infinitely
neater, flatter effect is gained.

some of the experiences of his two
