TAe Curious iYeu "W!scoaf,, Suifs Tftaf Give a Girl a Vest Like Her Brothers; the Odd New "Pannier" Gowns That Look Like Hip Bags; the Four Ring Dress; the Highwayman Veils. ft W. "A M ii W t A t ' t. J ; 8 I "n clearly showa In tB detailed , description of my newest models, the pannier It making a narked Impree- loo In the Spring fashion. Not all women, however, can or ahould adopt thia bo all ant atyle. To my readen, ai to Br client, t would , aay "know thyself before deciding to follow , the dainty examples of the Dresden china ahepherdessea I have always preached indi vidualism In dress. It Is painful to me to see . whole flocks of women following a fad un reaaoningly. Know your face, your figure, ' your coloring, even your very manners, be fore adopting any fashion la bata, gowns or wraps. Tbe French are great believers In the Indi vidual fashion. It Is In America and England tbe great ready-to-wear shops thrive Not In Parle. Thla Spring tbere are no many Individual , fads that may be adopted by the clever tu . dent of fashion. The new veils, for Instance, art well worth studying. The one shown In tbe picture I call tbe highwayman' vtlL The upper part Is very much ilk the brigand ' mask, and there Is no doubt that the veil la Its entirety forms a complete disguise. Only the woman with pronounced coloring and large eyea ahould adopt this veil. , The woman of Indefinite - coloring and vague features must content herself with the new fine mesh veils having larg flat spots worked In tbe mesh. And then the neck! French women of the . (mart world devote much thought to their necks. They never have worn the linen collar or the stiff, ugly stock, formerly the sign manual of the American woman. The after , aoon frock of this Spring ar made collar leas; frequently the narrow yoke la also omitted. Generally a high-necked gulmpe or tucker of fine aet la also made to wear with theee eo liar less frocks, a milady chooses. The collar are supported with the most deli cate of silk-covered wire, that I frequently unnoticed by the casual observer. On the other hand, with the morning frock or tailored costume the neck should be elab orately dressed this 8prlng. Tbere are charm ing effects for tbe woman with tbe thin neck and rest raining effect for the woman with tbe fat neck and plump cbln. Notice the tbree-tlered collar shown with tbe smart trotteor costume. This can be developed In fin lac or net and la an admirable letting for the thla face and neck. i Another very new idea for ahe .of the le FIO. &. A Charming New Creation In Brick-Red Ratine, with Lower Skirt of White and Blue Striped Material; White Straw Hat with Rouge and Blue Ornaments. "Utile" Models. der neck Is tbe crushed stock of aet or mull with tbe cbln bow. This bow mnst be built of soft material, yet there must be body enough to make it stand out definantly. Net or malinea are perhape the meet satisfactory fabric. The bow must be fastened at the top of tbe stock, with the Jabot fastened at the lower end. Tbe Jabot must be much shorter than those popular during tbe Winter. The woman with the fat neck and face mnst wear a high stock of Irish or point Venlse; her Jabot must be long and narrow and fastened at the baa of the stock, with no semblanc of a bow. Heavy, restraining laces are appropriate for the plump neck; the fine, soft lace for the thin. Will all women adopt the waistcoat? No The pannier and the ehlnts waistcoat ere fashions that should be adopted by tbe woman who thoroughly knowa herself. They are for the tall, slender woman who carries herself with the grace of the long-stemmed Illy. The waistcoat I so very smart that other women will seriously attempt to make ft their own. But the woman with Individ uality will see her limitations and If at all Inclined to embonpont will eschew' waistcoat and pannier and cling to her modification of the narrow, clinging fashion. Also, the woman who cannot afford a master modiste . should avoid the draped skirt. v ' FIG. 4.
