Startling new fashions in women's apparel have made their appearance at the Long champs race course, where the Pari sian smart set usually sets the styles. In addition to going bare legged, the women are wearing extremely tight gowns cut very short at the bottom and very low at the top. The arms are exposed unless covered by a cape. Dressmakers declare the women's dresses are to be shorter than ever this season and to be cut down fur ther in the front and back. Nothing is worn underneath the newest gowns but girdles and linger ie. Vivid green and Alice blue seem to be the most popular colors. Kha ki has gone out of favor since the ending of the war. During the last years of the world conflict it was quite stylish among the women. Capes are somewhat prominent. One new cloak had three capes at tached, one hanging below the other, almost to the hem of the dress. Each cape was bordered with what Modis tes call "elephant hair." More dash ing, however, are the mantillas which are thrown carelessly over the left shoulder. It is noted that hat brims have been banned by the milliners this season. Most of the latest hats turn up sharply over the brow. Some wonderful Paradise plumes are worn. On the whole, however, the honors of Longchamps go, to the coat and skirt, completed with a novel waist coat that extends half way down the length of the skirt. Generally this waistcoat is a contrast of colors in white pique with black spots. The more conservative coats have high colars with flaps under the ears.
