"The question of hat trimming is an important one; for the success of a hat depends even more on its trimming and on how it is ad justed than on the actual shape of the hat itself." The overtrimmed hat is "out of date" this season. Just the proper amount, correctly posed takes the place of the mass iveness of former seasons. , Ostrich plumes are especially modish; fancy feathers, quills and ornaments are good style.
