Happy Devices of Color anJ Line for the "Jeanne Fille" of Today, With Interesting Suggestions on Combina- C3 O tion Effects, Frock of While and Gray Chiffon Velvet. Vestee of While Chiffon. By Mme. Frances The Famous Creator of Fashions QIIE who holds within her soul the ij golden gift of youth, the clear-eyed courage that looks upon life, with lips athirst to drink it at its-full, should be dressed to dramatize this youth, this charm, which the eyes of age regard so wistfully, prayerfully wishing that the radiance might not be dimmed. Youth should be dressed to emphasize the loveliness of youth. Type and color- ing count for much, but youth is youth whether blonde or brunette and a young girl's clothes should feature this idea'of youth. How many, many times girls dress too old. Elaboration is not for youth. That may follnw with sophistication, but "la jeune filte" should, above all things, recognize the Value of plicity of line and trimming. Colors may be dark or blue.or brown may be as youthful as cie! or pink. It is the lino that counts in dressing the buoyancy of youth. Youth answers to vivid pink is youth's very, .very own. Fresh complexions find an answer- ing note in the rosy reflection of pink- pink of almost any shade. Light blue, mauve, yellow and orange are effective backgrounds for youthful loveliness, and, horizon and old blue are ideal foils for the youthful blonde or brunette. For sports wear the brilliant shades of orange and cerise; turquoise and the darker green blues are good. Silver and gold trimming and elaborate brocades, however lovely' these fabrics may be, are not generally sujUble for the young girl, with the exception wrought with white, which is extremely' effective on a debutante, particularly if she is a blonde. The silver must not, how- ever, overwhelm her.. It should be used with discretion. It may be employed In the form of sheer lace wrought with silver or u bandings of silver on net, and in sil- ver ribbon girdles and sashes, lovely color for a girl and orchid, especially in taffeta or char- is exquisitely charming. sis MS] Sft; i m Wrap of Maive Changeable TafTela, with Flowers of Same Taffeta and Edging of Fox Fiir. Bits of old lace muy be employed on the young girl's costum'e, garnished with bows of old blue ribbon and dainty pastel flow- ers. A gown of pale pink taffeta or chif- fon may carry a pinafore of Silver lace, garlanded with ribbons in shades of tur- quoise and green with flowers in mauve and pale yellow. All the pastel tones belong to youth for afternoon and evening wear. For the street there is nothing so lovely on a young blonde as gray. She will appear more striking in black and never more pairitable than in black velvet. The darker tones of brown, wood and seal are ideal street shades for the youthful blonde or brunette navy, blue, of course. The gowns illustrated lire designed for a girl's -street suit-for morning wear, an afternoon gown, an evening dress and.wrap. For the morn- ing and general wear there is a charming little black velvet suil.

The short jacket flares at the sides and ripples a bit at the back in a lino that swings loosely from the shoulder. It is lined'with ivory" white charmeusc satin.

Thia blouse and the collars and cuffs would be lovely devel- oped in batiste or mullc and Val. lace. The sleeves of this suit are three-quartcrlength, reaching just below the c-l. bow.
