UPTILTED HATS ARE MILADY'S
By Maybelle Mortimer.
Paris. There's an "uppishness"
about the newest mid-summer hats
that gives an air of sauciness to even
the demurest girls. Everything in the 1
way of headgear, at least, is uptilted
and small and pert.
The black velvet hat, like the black
velvet basque, had its origin here in
Paris, and though everybody gasped
at the thought of wearing black vet
vet in summer time, everybody obedi
ently bowed to fashion's edict. And it
isn't so bad after all. The basques are
sleeveless and collarless, nothing
more than "jumpers," and the hats
are very light in weight and' when
softened by a white aigrette or wings
of white tulle they lose a good deal
of their wintery heaviness. Oddly
enough they look smarter with sum
mery frocks of lingerie and silk than
the leghorn and milan of former sea
sons. But the velvet hat has grown rather
common everybody had a black vel
vet, so fickle fashion threw everybody
into a panic by turning her favor to
the small, turban-like shapes which
have just made their appearance.
Very few of these are of straw,
black velvet, black and white taffeta
or white satin being the materials in
variably used in these little chapeaux.
Even the seasons turn topsy turvy
when fashion wills it, and no one
question the incongruity of wearing
winter hats in the dog-days.
ALL RIGHT, WE WONT
(From dscar Duryea's Dancing
Bend the knees.
Sway the shoulders.
Embrace your partner.
Pump-handle, the arms.
Shuffle the feet alongthe floor.
Move the hips from side to side.'
White organdy-cuffs and collars are
much in evidence on silk or gaberdine
