?V ETR V woman ,-hould determine
rhts season. If never before, to i
make herself us attractive a*
carefully selected clothes will

?'n opportunity for clr* --int; up to her
individuality been open to her.
Fabrics arc' b"aiti'ul. the list of;
trimmings. wi*h wnich to adjust linos.
Ions and varied, and colors are so !
closely graded that the usual difficulty
of matching ton*?, tints and shades is
practically eliminated. Only an un
derstanding of what is what in fash
ion. coupled with a ser.se of one's i
own requirements is necessary to
? omplete satisfaction; the rest is1
merely a matter of adjustment, at
least, to the woman who is possessed j
of dress sense.
Involving many new details that
emphasize the trend of fashion, cloth
coats arc yet unusually pia< tical and
serviceable. Many of them are sim
ply, notwithstanding ni'ch embroid
ery. much fur and other trimming
motifs in profusion, which frequently
are found together in a single gar
ment. as in the very good looking
mode? shown above. It is of soft
brown innrvella, with its circular back
.-option of all-over chenille embroid
ery, and its shorter cape-front band
ed and collared with beaver.
It Is not easy to classify these cloth
coats. The majority of them, like
the one jus: described, are elaborate
in detail, strikingly fashionable; yet
somehow entirely suitable for any
occasion for whi -h a clofh coat could
he required. The combination of cape
and cf>at I-. one of the features that
contributes to this qualification, and
another ts that the colors, the shad
owy browns, the new r-ds. black and
the occasional neve blue, arc in them
selves a bit more distinctive than the
-hades ordinarily introdu ? d for fall
wear, and this givs a n? w ftisi mbl?
effect that is neither too formal nor
v yet lacking in dignity.
There are, however, many rape
wraps that are oxprcsslv designed to
interpret the more pra'C.oa! mode,
such as tho one <>t Juliette cloth also
illustrated. Ill this there is a long,
straight c.'pe wh.'h is made separate
md can l>e worn ipnrt from a.three
quarter eape which is raised sufll
??untly at the nerg iri the ha- k ???
produce a dcf-ah-d flare, causing this
?ape to s'.t d well out and away from
?he under one.
Fmphast/lne Side I'larcs
For ''oil's, as in dr*:?se? there seems
to bn a continued interest in flying
panels, shoulder cape?, irregular hems
and o'Iit features that produce flar
mg side effects. As an example of
b 'h i tendency, none ;s triore apt than

novelty of the season and, strangely t
enough, they are not exactly as ex
treme in appearance as would seem i
from a mere description of them, for,
there is very apt to be a longer back- j
panel, as in a smart coat of this tvpe
developed in navy corona, without
which it is a style possible only to the
exceedingly slender figure. In this
coat, as In mo?r of the models, there
i is a fur collar with tabs In front and
there are narrow sleeve-hands of fur'
and loner lines of embroidery clown
j the sleeves, a!) of these features being
j studiously contrived to give style lines
that will counteract the abbreviated
I^ess embroidery f? seen on the fall
and winter coats. What there Is Is

FOR THE AUTUMN BRIDE
CHK wise bride. In these practical ;
days, considers not only her gown
arefully but u!l the other details
too. choosing not simply what appeals
to her for the moment but what will
retain its charm and usefulness be
yond the day of days.
Materials should be rich and of an
excellent quality but It Is not neces
sary to be rashly extravagant and to
acquire dozens of articles more than
any bride could hope to wear, for
tnines change so rapidly that advance
stocks, even of lingerie, are a mistake.
The gown Is always a matter purely
of individual choice adapted to the cir
cumstances of the bride, the character
and hour of the wedding and the po
sirion in society the married pair are
to occupy after, but for the trousseau,
the wither gowns, the underthings and
?he infinity of small belongings, any
bride-to-be might appreciate a few I
For the negligee, for Instance, there j
are some long, wide-sleeved things in
coat effects that are adorable. One in :
daffodil yellow crinkled silk crepe is
edged all around with white moufflon
about two inches wide. The coat turns
I away at the neck with tailored revers
and the fronts are caught together at j
the waistline with long ribbons.
Then for her feet there are, first of
I all, mules in red and silver brocade }
' that tie with silver ribbons around the !
ankle to prevent them from slipping !
off as mules have a way of doing. An
arched toepiece is edged with fluffy
i white swansdown.
A little boudoir cap of black lace
is most engaging. The black lace
forms the top which Is gathered into I
a band of silver lace finished at either
side with a narrow frill of creamy
white lace, and from under thla drop*
a second and wider frill, after the
manner of lace frills on hat brlme. -j
Corsets for the bride are amazingly J
lovely of soft and supple whfte satin
with hardly a bone in them, embroid
ered with sprays of orange blossom*
scattered about over them. The
strings are of strong white satin rib
bon and a frill of real lace finishes the
top, while from the lower edge fklh
another flounce of lace, this time logff
enough to serve as a petticdat. lhli
last touch, however, the bride ?t to
day adds herself.
Lace edged handkerchiefs are book , .
in fashion and the discerning bride
will acquire at least one for the wed
