Simplicity Introduced in
1931 Fall Mode Enhanced
I In Dress Vogue This Fall
As we turn the style pages from
summer to fail, we find many sig
nificant changes in dress- fash
ions, which include new 'colors,
new fabrics, and new lines. The
strict simplicity which character
ized the modes of last year has
been elaborated uDon. nntil it
reaches a point of greater becom-
ingness, greater individuality, and
aaaed practicability.
From the simple one-piece frock
which sees the business girl safe
ly through office hours and an in
formal, evening, to the couturier
model I of the woman whose name
appears Jn the social register.
there is an obvious similarity
which claims as its greatest virtue
conservative good taste.

demands simple clothing. For that
reason! the tailored dress plays a
most important part In the aver
age wardrobe. Let us then con
sider those types which step into
the linjelight with the advancing
new season.
It is rather difficult to decide
which gets most attention, silk or
woolen:,' and we even find the
weaves of both fabrics bearing
such close similarity that It is hard
to tell which Is which at a fair
distance. The variety of novelty
weaves Includes crinkly crepes, the
sheerest of woolens with vague in
terwoven threads that give heath
er tones, and combined Schaone
silks and wools. There are, for in

onal construction, like serge; the

rics with which we will become
familiar with the progressing days
Most often in one-piece styline.
with single and double breasted
bodice effects, these tailored dav-
time dresses rely on the fineness
of their lines for perfect fit, with
the most discreet trimmings. We'll
see more and more of metal but

Still more important, however.
are the lingerie trimmings which
got such a splendid head start this
past summer. For tailored frocks,
bibs, plastrons, and yoke-effect
collars in crisp pique, linen, or
dull satin, are most appropriate,
lending an air of youthful charm,
and adding to the practicability of
the dress because of their easy-to-
cnange character.
The Coat Drese
Particularly becoming to all Az
ures is the tailored dress in coat
styling, which introduces one of
the season s smartest moods by
going beitless. These dresses are
so cut as to stress the nigh waist
line, In splta ot the fact that no
definite line is established by a
belt Wide revers, convertible to
high-neck closings are the most
popular way of accenting the man
nish Influence in these business-
girl styles, which will be accepted
by smart women everywhere be

as well, because it finds Its place
not only In social afternoon gath
erings, and for informal evenings,
but acts as the mainstay of the
young matron's wardrobe, adapt
ing itself to Sunday afternoon
wear, and visit to town for
luncheon or the theatre.
Here too. we see much of sheer
woolens, taking, however, to more
formal weaves, such as a coarse
black wool net In Irish crochet
effect, the sheerest wool crepes,
thin crinkly woolens, wool Jersey
mesn, (a newcomer), etamlnes
and the full run of crepes of ev
ery weight and texture. N
Probably one of the most inter
esting things noted by stylists at
the Paris and later New York
showings was the fact that so
much Is thought of American
made fabrics these days, that a
great many of the foreign fashion
originators based their creations
on these materials whereas years
ago, American materials were
thought but little of. In compari

The Tapered Lino

the most Important change for
this year ot grace, is the gradual
passing? out of existence of the
voluminously flared skirt.

gested by a tapering skirt which

by yoke-effect 'tacking, or an in
serted yak lying high at the
neck with - scarf ends. Inserted
strips ot contrasting fabric run-!
ning from the neckline and the
full length of the sleeve is an
other means ot stressing shoulder
width which is seen recurrently.
Probably one ot tho most
youthful ideas." is that of epaulets,
in self or contrasting color,
either suggested by insertion or
forming a separate collar effect.
While on the subject ot necklines,
we most not overlook the thtee
point collar, which dips at the
center-back, and forms wide re

most flattering in white or pink
satin, and rery girlish when tied

, Similarly, bibs, plastrons, and
and berthas ot a lingerie fabric

purpose of exaggerating bodice
breadth and supplying the desir

Still other mediums employed
are gold or silver hand fagotting
to - connect yoke and frock or
sleeves of raglan cut with tlie
bodice line; incrusted metallic
fabrics of Oriental patterning, and

outstanding in the fall color
scheme, at least for the first ot
the season's costumes. It Is an old

considered the classic color com

year, however, we are Inclined to
treat it more lightly, because of
the Introduction ot so many beau
