It Is No Wonder Suits Are So Popular This Spring
-They Are Unusually Charming
For Instance Among the New Models Are:
Suits of the most elejant seTges of a ouality that fore
gone seasons could not approach. Then there are suits of
gabardine a material that is well entitled to its present
vojrue. And, too, there are some of the most handsome
tweed mixtures and striking check materials most fascinat
ingly used in attaining suits ideal for spring wear. Then, the j
suits of fine silk poplins, of faille silks, of taffetas, j
chuddah cloth and the very smart serge combination
effects have an air to them that wins instant and the
most ardent enthusiasm.
It is not the materials akme that make this spring's suits
seem so wholly different and so much more fascinating than
in the seasons past the accomplishments of the designers
never seemed so wonderful as now. The belted and pleated
coat models that so many women admire so greatly are
unusually smart. To enhance - their attractiveness are the
skirts in the full flared effects and plaited modes that seem
to fit in so well with the season's style ideas. And, of course,
the plain tailored styles always will maintain the vogue they
long have enjoyed. They, too, are especially noteworthy
this spring season. " - vr
