Colorful Evening Frocks.
Prosperity Is translated Into clothes
lu tills senson's evening frocks. Sntln,
crepe, brocade, cloth of gold nnd sil
ver, metallic laces, and, above nil,
masses of net are used for making
them. There is no limit to the use of
color, which Is of wonderful value in
them. Intricate combinations of color,
and the Introduction of unusual shades
bring the attention to a standstill in
mnny n gorgeous gown. In this par
ticular designers have found a new
world to conquer, and they appear to
. be enjoying the business In hnnd.
Leaving tho matter of color to those
; who study It, the lady of fashion may
proceed ' to choose either straight
hanging or spreading skirts for her
evening frocks. If the slim silhouette
Is possible to her she may choose It,
but the full skirt covers up defects of
too little or too much flesh. It makes
the waist of the stout figure look smnll
er than it really Is, and it obliterates
tho angles of the thin woman entirely.
The under slip of silk and metallic
tissues Is in high favor, along with
satin nnd taffeta, ns a foundation for
Collars. Convertible and Otherwise.
The trend of fashion In collars Is
toward the original and unusual, espe
cially In separate collars to be worn
for added warmth with suits or frocks.
Collars have taken their Inspiration
from every period nnd clime, but only
n hint of their origin Is discernible In
most of them, for nbout all coat und
separate collars arc convertible. That
Is, whatever the style of tho collar to
start with, It Is convertible Intq a muffler-collar
that swathes nil of the
throat and part of tho head.
Costumcrs, having centered thjlr at
tention on collars, have contrived some
ingenious novelties on blouses und
one-piece frocks, but these arc nnothcr

fon, crepe, georgette, nnd net. A

evening gowns of net. Net for tho
gown, In at least two colors, both dif
ferent from the color of tho slip, re
veal the latitude allowed In this mat
ter of color. Two odd and beautiful
combinations have been found in peri
winkle blue and honey color, and in
pinkish buff (like the Inside of a
canteloupe) nnd light olive green.
Tho evening dress pictured has a
bodice of satin, and a full yoke of It,
In the skirt, Is gathered on to the
waist. An Insertion of light net Is set
on to the sntln yoke and a flounco of
dark net Is shirred to this Insertion.
An underpettlcoat of taffetn Is finished
at tho bottom with a puff of the light
net, nnd the model may bo made suc
cessfully In any good color combina
tion. There Is a scarf drapery of net over
the shoulders. It begins at the waist
line at the back, falling in long ends
at the front. The nlry scarf of ma
lines or net, whntever the evening
frock mny be, Is a part of it, or Is
wound about the shoulders or may fall
from tho hair as a separate drapery. .
that are worn with evening nnd dance
frocks. They are wrapped loosely
about the neck nnd shoulders and sug
gest n floating mist nbout tho figure.
Everyone wears them.
A very wide cape-collar Is shown In
the picture, on a handsome fur coat.
It Is converted Into n mufller-collar by
utilizing buttons nnd buttonholes also.
The latest arrival in collars Is sim
ple to tho last degree. It Is merely a
wido bund of fur which stnnds straight
up about the neck and fastens with n
rosetto and soft ends of ribbon at one
side. Or the ties mny be of crepe. In
either case they match the fur in color.
The plainest of coats may depend
upon n spirited collar to glvo It cluss,
nnd the element of style lu blouses and
frocks ns well lie more In the collar
thuii lu any other detail, at present.
