Verily, one must be strong-minded to reeist the temptation of purchasing one or more of the new fall chapeaux. There is such a multiplicity of clever ly designed shapes and It is astonish ing that they are generally becoming to the majority of women. Simplicity plus eleganc* describe* the new hats. The shape counts first FANTASTIC TWISTS IN FALL SASHES 1 There's no end to the fantastic twists Dame Faahion gives the sash which invariably trims the new fall gowns. Some of them are long, most of them are wide, some are adjust able, and a saw of -them form a drapery tor the gown—and not all of them are either becoming or grace ful. One of the very latest models is shown tn the illustration. It la of the same material as the gown and it Is drawn from the bust line' In the front diagonally over the hips and fastened in the back with a large white velvet buckle. The short walsted coat is another of the season's novelties which offer a welcome break in the monotony of long-coated costumes. What the Autumn Hats Look Like -r-the trimmings next, and the poise third. A-plenty of the hate bear a close relationship to their Summer cousins, but the way the hate are worn gives them an entirely different aspect Either they are pertly tilted from the bask by mean of a bandeau or attain a saucy coquettishness by be. tng titled side-wise over the right eye. Never, under any circumstances, do they sit demurely on the head. In choosing your hat scrutlntss It from every angle and try It on while standing eo aa to get s good view of [“tout ensemble." The deft Angers of 4he home milliner will readily find a wsy in trimming the hate so that they will defy criticism If the correct shape Is chosen, for scarcely any trimming is needed to complete the deeired ef fect. Hats, with a masculine penchant, have gained a secured position, but their femininity hi evinced by means of the trimming. The hats with nar row rims and high crowns are much like s man's high top hat One of these hats was trimmed with a cluster of 12 beck wings at the can tor of the crown, while another had a tall fan shaped arrangement of nar row pleating* of moire silk ribbon. Botne of the small hats are minus ’ rims. vh:le others are nhelUhapetl Straight brims with slanted crowns and toque effects are also worn. The sailor shape Is really a sailor In nams only, tor it has taken unto itself such sprightly forms. Hats which hug the head cloeely with small rolling brim and high crown suggest practical use fulness. Tailored models of wide plaid Her cules braid faced with dark toned vel vet simply trimmed with ribbon or quills have been successfully launched. Velvet and plush form many of the hat* although felt, faille, taffeta and all-ribbon hats lend themselves well to this season's dictation. It is the better part of valor to possess at least one black hat, for you will notice the pendulum of fashion regularly swings hack to the inevit able black hat. The dark color tones are best liked for day-time hata. Onyx, citron, amytheat, gendarme blue, taupe. Russian green, maxlxa. tete de negre are shown in a good proportion of the Imported models. Wing!- Q° lllo and fancy ostrich In every shape and form are used In eccentric ways. A small hat with high Indented crown had stubby little shaded quills placed every wbich-way around the crown. Directly in front and back were tailored bows of faille ribbon. If one is fortunate enough Id possess' Paradise aigrette* lv is well to know that thejTare oftA made up in snake like effects or shoot outward around tho crown. S Narrow velvet ribbons and wide silk ribbons, preferably faille, in dashing loops, are always a sofa trimming. A bit of turquoise ribbon gives a gay fin ish to some of the hats. Feathers, which have long reigned supreme In the wintry months, have had to share their kingdom with silk and velvet flowera. The blossoms that bloom In the millinery flower field are both large and small. A purple hat had large velvet two toned popples topping the crown. Nettling here and there were little bows of velvet ribbon. The brim Os this hat flared suddenly at each side and was singularly becoming. A green hat, which could hardly have been much smaller, had small flowers circling the crown. Hieing from the crown were three nncarled plumes, placed each at a different angle, the tips crossing each other.
