A Splendid Collection of Spring Coats
For street or business wear, for which these new garments,
emphasizing quality in their materials, are admirably
suited. They're simple, yet graceful in line, with just the
necessary "touch" of trimming to give "character" to the
appearance of every wearer.
We unhesitatingly recommend these Coats to women who
desire garments of style and service at a moderate cost.
Ever reluctant to give up the graceful lines of the Cape, Mi
lady will be overjoyed at the new models for wear over smart
frocks. Voluminous collars, odd draplngs and linings of the
delightful - printed silks distinguish the Capes of 1920.
Duvetyn, velours, tricotine and silken fabrics are used in
obtaining the Cape's becoming silhouette.
The Gingham Frock Deserves Its Popularity .
and its important place in the vacation wardrobe. We are especially proud of the models in this
showing, for they have that something in the past only attributed to frocks of sheerer, more ex
pensive fabric smartness. They are really pretty in their individual stylinp, with their attract
ive patterns and snowy organdy trimmings. And they are so very moderate in price that to own
several delightful models is no hardship on one's purse. .
