and plaids. A favorite combination is a
blue and white checked skirt with a blue
Jacket, or a black and white striped skirt
with a black or white Jacket.

novelty worsteds, epongo and f'omc of the
mannish suitings. Silk suits will be
much favored.
The fancy suits will have a fair -amount
of braids In their construction. Duckies
and buttons are scon on all the suits. For
a long time buttons wore neglected, but
now no suit is complete without buttons
as a trimming. A pretty touch Is given
a' suit by the various kinds of odd but
tonholes "used; some are bound In direct
contrast to the color of the button.
In length the suit coats vary from
twenty-four to twenty-seven Inches, or
approximately a wrist length for the
average figure. ?ome retain the cutaway
effect of this winter: others are cut
around the bottom with a decided dip In
the back, while again other models arc
straight across i he back and longer at
the side scams, practically all arc loose
titling with fancy collars, and no separate
revers. The coats are cut in sections in
the back with the raised waistline, and it
slight degree of fullness Is drawn In to
the belt. Belts of leather or of the same
material are seen on a number of suns.
A dark blue silk suit has a white suede
bolt, which gives a stunning effect to the
costume. . , .
The latest achievements In suits and
dresses show many adoptions of the Rus
sian blouse. This spring the blouses will
open in the front instead of on the side,
and low collars will bo substituted for
the high ones.
Tho sleeves are still mannish In effect
with little fullness except on the fancy
suits which have the wide llowing sleeve,
or a low sot-In sleeve with a can eftect.
A novel tailor-made model is of blue grey
suiting. The cutaway coat has a belt
which extends to the seams at either
side of the front and back. Quito a large
collar extends to the shoulder and has
three buttonholes 'at cither side of the
front and three at the center of the
back, tho Jacket Is buttoned down the
front with three buttons. There Is also
a new draped sleeve that promises to be
very popular In somo of the new models
Tho plain skirt is lapped at the front
and finished at tho bottom with a row
of buttons. In the back tho skirt Is laid
In pleats.
The three-quarter length coats aro seen
a great deal. Those coats have rounded
fronts with some of the backs cut In
sections like tho suits, with a Uttlo full

and simulated belt effects are also a
characteristic feature of the separate
coats. Pockets are seen on many of the
coats. Novelty collars and cuffs give a
fashlonablo air to the utility coat.
Many of tho spring onc-plcco gowns
resemble a suit In eft'ect. There are vari
ous icw Innterpretatlons of the "Coatless
dress, suitable for spring wear. A stun
ning mustard color cloth has the collar
of hemstitched black silk with over
collar and cults of laco. The sleeves are
designed in one with the waist. A laco
frill offsets the front. The coat effect
continues over the hips and Is joined to
the waist under a broad leather belt.
Tho skirt Is pleated at the sides and back
with pleats stitched half-way down.
Large amber buttons placed next to the
handworked blnclc silk arrow-heads are
used as trimming.
A plaid silk dross In blue and brown
has tho soft girdle of blue silk knotted
directly in front with long ends. This is
trimmed with a fine pleated batiste
Jabot and little gold buckles with brown
bows. The skirt has a tunic effect.
A new feature of the dresses are the
sleeves of contrasting color and mate
rial, or tho upper sleeve of one material
and the lower of another. One model of
green linen has a border of a darker
shade of linen. The skirt is made along
the usual straight lines and finished
with a tuck above the bordor. The front
panel of the darker shade is rounded at
tho sideband is trimmed with ctjochet
buttons.;"Thc waist has the yoke back
