Although these peace times tend
to bring back freak styles, the frocks
and wraps of the young debutante
continue to be exquisitively simple.
There is nothing which so emphasizes
the beauty of youth as absolute and
even severe simplicity. Contrary to
the belief of many persons, the gar
ment of studied simplicity is much
more costly than the freakishly draped
and ornamental garment. The reason
is that it takes ornamentation to cov
er up defects in material or workman
ship, poor quality of fabric and tailor
Pictured is a charmingly simple
frock for the winter's debutante.
Navy brocaded talfeta combined with
chiffon is the combination. The skirt
shows a slight draping near the hem
and there are two side panels which
have interesting inserts of shirred
chiffon. Shirring trims the blouse
also and the square neck and long
bell-shaped sleeves are pleasing fea
tures. A very large bow of the bro
caded taffeta with a. tiny cluster of
satin flowers in the center makes an
important effective trimming.

So tnany good things have happened to each and all of us
