NEWEST SUMMER FASHIONS -By Lady Gordon Duff.
Tfa' Curious New "Waistcoat" Suits That
Give a Girl a Vest Like Her Brothers;
Odd New "Pannier79 Gowns That Look
Like Hip Bags; the Four Ring
Dress; the Highwayman Veils.
I nave clearly ihowa la the detailed
description of my newest models, the
pannier Is making a marked Impree-
ion In the Spring fashions. Not all women,
however, can or should adopt this bouffant
To my readers, as to my clients. I would
say "know thyself before deciding to follow
the dainty examples of (he Dresden chine
shepherdesses. I have always preached Indi
vidualism In dress. It Is painful to me to see
whole flocks of women following a fad un
. reasoulngty. Know your face, your figure,
. your coloring, even your very manners, be
fore adopting any fashion la hats, gowns or

This Spring there are so many Individual
fads that may be adopted by the clever stu
dent of fsihlon. The new veils, for ins ts nee,
' are well worth studying. The one shown la
the picture 1 call the highwayman's veil. The
upper part Is very much like the brigand's
mask, and there la no doubt that the veil la
Its entirety forms a complete disguise.
Only the woman with pronounced coloring
and large eyes should adopt this veil. The
woman of Indefinite coloring and vague
; features must content herself with the new
One mesh veils having . large flat spots
worked la the mesh.
And then the neck! French women of the "
smart world derate much thought to their
' necks. They sever have worn the linen collir
or the stiff, ugly stock, formerly the sign
manual of the American woman. The after
soon frocks of this Spring are made collar
less; frequently the narrow yoke Is also
omitted. Generally a high-necked gulmpe or
tucker of fine aet Is also made to wear with
these eollsrless frocks, as milady chooses.
The collars are supported with the most deli
cate of sllk-eovered wire, that Is frequently
unnoticed by the casual observer.
On the other hand, with the morning frock
er tailored costume the neck should be slab
orately dressed this Spring. There are charm
ing effects for the woman with the thin neck
aad restraining effects for the woman with
the fat neck and plump chin. Notice the
three-tiered collar shown with the smart 1
trotteur costume. This can be developed In
flee lace or aet and Is an admirable setting
- for the this face and neck.
Another very new Idea for she of the slen-

der neck Is the crushed stock of net or mult
with the chin bow. This bow must be built of
soft material, yet there must be body
enough to make It stand out deflnantly.
Net or mallnes are perhaps the most
satisfactory fabrics. The bow must be '
fastened at the top of the stock, with the jabot
faatened at the lower end. The Jabot must be
much shorter than those populsr during
The woman with the fat neck and face
mast wear a high stock of Irish or point
Venlse; her Jabot must be long and narrow
and fastened at the base of the stock, with
no semblance of a bow. Heavy, restraining
laces are appropriate for the plump neck; the
fine, soft laces for the thin.
Will all women adopt the waistcoat? No.
The pannier and the chlnti waistcoat are
fasi'ons fiat should be adopted by the
woman who thoroughly knows herself. They
are for the tall, slender woman who carries
herself with the grace of the long-stemmed
Illy. The waistcoat Is so very smart that
other women win seriously attempt to make
K their own. But the woman with Individ
uality wig see her limitations and If at all
Inclined to embonpont will eschew waistcoat
and pannier and ding to her modtflcatlon of
the narrow, clinging fashions. Also, the
woman who cannot afford a master modiste
