1: Of Good Taste in
Ornate Creations Are Banished Because of Their Lack
of Durability and Failure to
Meet Real Tests
1 COMPLICITY is the keynote of good taste in clothes for
f O little girls and little boys. Really, a piece of chocolate
candy, carelessly handled as the little folks forever will be
careless, will do vastly less damage to a simple f reck or waist
? than it will to some of these ornate creations that an mdul-
K gent mother is apt to design for her offspring.
Simplicity in design spells economy for mother, not only
I in manufacture, but in upkeep. The job of "doing up" these
l dainty frocks is a thing mother should think of before she
f sets to work to make clothes for the children.
i Simplicity of Design
i It is perhaps for these obvious reasons that the manu
i facturers are continuing to present us with children's ap
:r parel that 'places its principal emphasis on simplicity of de-
. ' sign, plain things, with every-day school wear especially
j noticeable. , - '
Cape coats without fur are shown. This, too, is a very
im practical idea. Fur is pretty, but youngsters are not careful
jtipf it. From the child's viewpoint, life is so full of more inter
j: esting things than clothes.
Ity , Bound Scollops Favored
Capes are split down the back in "V" or "U" shapes or
crossed over and buttoned. - Bound scollops are featured on
f;.' some of them. Throw collars of various types are shown on
iniany coats.- Some of these are fitted so as to stand up at
f ; the back of the neck and others are laid in folds similar to!
those for the grownups. '
Capes are also parts of ensembles. A very effective one

!:-'!rhis over a simple slip-on dress of blue made a charming com
i.rbination. (;fj Wash Fabrics Continue
!!v Practical school clothes continue for the young miss, in
the wash fabrics. Cotton broadcloth and pongee are the most
. popular among the materials. Many of. these were made
J. in jacket combinations. You can picture for yourself how
: .. smart a youngster would look in a sport frock of red silk,
with an oyster white pongee jacket trimmed in bands of red,
, with a cunning little tied collar under her chin.
Party dresses, too, come in the lighter weight fabrics.
: Georgette dresses in pastel colors with ruffles and bows are
sweet and fresh looking, while dainty tints in taffeta flower
petaled frocks make a wee miss a lovesome thing. Coats of
silk with applique and cut-work treatment are designed to
wear to the party.
Tan tweed is good for a smart school ensemble. The coat
is short and is buttoned with two buttons, wearing a patch
pocket either side. A simple box plait is the skirt's only
feature. The overblouse of tan crepe de chine repeats the
box plait down the front under a yoke effect.
Another effective school costume is deftly designed in
navy blue jersey with French blue for contrast. Its good
looking jacket of navy is bound with French blue. A blouse'
of the lighter blue is bound at the neck with navy, and is
buttoned into a short pleated skirt of dark- bluer
Many linens Are Shown !
Linen frocks are not exclusively summer dresses by any,
means. Their tub-able quality has been mentioned, which is
so necessary for the younger misses. Many linens are shown'
for fall. A smart little outfit of coat and dress exemplifies
A tucked vest that continues to the hem was the dress's
main feature. The coat was built on raglan lines, with a sim-.

straight bands. Patches of pointed shapes formed the sleeve's'
only trimming. The lines of this outfit were its chief recom-l
Since scollops have been done and perhaps overdone, a
pleasant variation is a trimming of zig-zag lines. A silk!
dress for a high school miss had a plain blouse that was
printed silk. A scarff of print with piquoted zig-zag edges
ied on one shoulder. The sleeves repeated the zig-zag with
cuffs of print that were piquoted on. A cunning little hankie
of the print, with zig-zag edges, was the final effective touch.

PARIS (AP) The well
dressed Parisian woman's choice
of stockings is governed these
days by greater individuality and
the color of the costume with
which they are to be worn.
Noisette, a shade that takes its
name from hazel-nuts, is one of
(the most popular for day wear.
Rose beige is still much worn,
though its popularity is declining.
Dove gray and mauve beige are
the correst day and evening choice
for gray costumes.

enthusiasm for mesh stockings,
