That all important afternoon frock is here interpreted in that loveliest of all fabrics, heavy quality all silk Canton Crepe. It possesses the required note of contrast in richly toned colors of Oriental print all silk crepe de chine, which forms the sleeves and under body and also appears on the long gracefully flowing knife plaited side panels and girdle.
Of luxurious warmth and style and showing the smartest of the new modes in its modish short length is the stunning Parisian Coatee offered here. It is made of soft, natural beige color closely curled caracul fur of splendid quality and rich distinction. Extremely good looking is the large standing collar and you will like the new style uneven line of the front with its closing achieved by decorative medallion clasp. Coatee has loose slightly flared back, full cuffed bell sleeves and is lined throughout with rich brocaded satin.
So prevalent is the sports idea in dress that even general wear, serviceable frocks reflect it. And why not, when such a splendid result is attained as we find in the all wool velour check dress shown above, which combines in its pleasing style all of the warmth necessary in a fall and winter dress and all of the chicness expected of the new mode. Cire braid and novelty buttons have successfully been combined with harmonizing color wool crepe as trimming. The flattering collar pulls through pretty loop on front of waist and adding an effective touch of decorative smartness is the fancy leatherette belt. An evidence of good tailoring is found in the inverted plaits at sides of skirt.
Materials are strongly woven, fast color, and have very neat stripes. All are carefully made and will give you long wear, the French backs being especially noted for their wear resisting qualities. Made with plain bottoms.

Competing for popular favor with the extremely long coat so much in evidence this season, we find an entirely new fashion. The brilliant little jacquette style, but recently launched by Paris, has already gained the approval of smartly dressed women. In this model, which may be purchased in rich black silk seal plush or in the stunning black crushed karakul fur fabric, we have a delightful exponent of this new mode. Jacquette is bloused onto a snug fitting band at hips, which clasps with composition ornament lacquered in oriental motif. The smart standing collar is of silver gray chinchilla fur fabric, fashioned to resemble the rare and expensive chinchilla fur, and matches the wide cuffs upon the bell sleeves.

The bolero effect dress is always a favorite because of its simplicity and unusual becomingness. We offer it here fashioned of that splendidly satisfying fabric, all wool poiret twill. Beneath the jacket effect at front is a bodice of colorfully printed all silk crepe de chine which joins the skirt under a belt of patent leather finish clasped with the new decorative metal medallions. Good tailoring is evident in every line of this model, and the tiny piped handkerchief pocket in skirt and the two smart inverted plaits at sides bear witness to the maker's skill. Daintiness itself is the collar and cuffs set of embroidered ecru organdie and there is a slender satin ribbon tie which closes the neck.
That the newly arrived mode for side effects is having its influence upon suits is demonstrated in this fine quality all wool poiret twill suit for misses and small women.
