dainty white tulle scurf g to wear with summer evening frocks
at least that Is what the travelers returning from New York
and Paris tell me.
Daintiness scorns to be the keynote lor the summer wardrobe this year,
and bolts and yards of lace and net will be used In combination with mors
Every kind of a gown or frock must have a girdle. It does not mat
ter whether In contrasting shade or not, or it does not seem to be impor
tant how It Is made; In fact, the simple girdle with a bow eltbor back or
front Is as popular as any. Soft Japanese silks are favored In girdles for
the summer frocks.
Probably the nowest note In dress accessories Is the "back comb."
This Is one part of the wardrobe which Is not so dainty, for the fancy
combs and immense hairpins which are Jauntily worn on the bias, so to
speak, are both large and brilliant.
