About Those Whimsical Brims
N SOME sensons milliners appear
to center attention on the brims
of huts nnd at other times It Is the
crowns that command all of their eon
sldcrutlnu. Just now, In winter milli
nery crowns ure playing nn Inconspi
cuous pnrt. They refuse to tnke nny
responsibility, being soft nnd unsup
ported, their contour Indefinite, except
nfter. they nre adjusted to the head.
Occasionally when assisted by n side
band they are equal to supporting n
little embroidery but usually they nre
merely n soft covering for the top of
the heud in all fabric lints.
Meanwhile designers are showing
Just bow many things can be done
with brims. They ure fanciful eccen
tric, whimsical, ami they are exceed
ingly pretty and becoming. With the
advance of the season nnd the up
penrnnre of midwinter lints for formal
wear n great many hnnilsnme velvet
hats show brims of uneven width

they nfo split, curved, dented, slushed,
folded and draped. Their ways are
devious and there Is no telling wliut
will happen to them next, but It Is a
safe gueH that they will not return
to the straight' and narrow path for

good beginning with nn unusual
