The Debutante must be outfitted from top to toe or to be literal from hat to Boot with smart and Correct clothes that shall last her until after the holidays at least. Smart clothes Are easy enough to buy in Manhattan the shops abound with them and the dressmakers Are Only too willing to turn them out but Correct clothes Are another matter. Ujj Correct the Debutante must be Correct to the last detail of attire. Her raiment must express youth but it must also express distinction. It May be just a wee bit extreme because she is Young and pretty and Gay but it must not be too extreme for it will be adjudged by those most conventional sticklers for propriety the dowager who uphold exclusiveness of class. Woe to the Little Debutante whose manners or whose modes offend those fastidious critics. The Debutante just emerging from the simplicity of a schoolgirl wardrobe might Well be overwhelmed at the sartorial splendor to which she has now fallen Mieir. At least three smart Tailleur must she have one for Trot about Wear one for informal afternoon Wear and one for formal occasions the latter will probably be of velvet.

A pm i there will be Negligee too ravishing affairs of Chiffon and lace touched a Faith fur and there will be quantities of exquisite lingerie luxurious a grown up lingerie to which the simply dressed Young school girl might never aspire. Incidentals such As blouses neckwear veils gloves and the like must be added to this extensive wardrobe also and so within the space of a few weeks. No wonder the Debutante and her Mamma Are Busy these Days Black velvet is not any longer the Peculiar property of the Down Ager. Everybody wears velvety even the Debutante under Twenty but velvet for youth has a Youthful style quite unlike Ike impressiveness of velvet for Middle age. Velvet frocks for Young girls Are Cut on so. A a Kyj mass Obi of a girl particularly if she have fair Fluffy hair. Plum coloured velvet and Brown velvet Are also favored for Debutante Wear and in All cases lines Are kept simple almost severe to enhance by their simplicity together with the Rich fabric used the youth and freshness of the wearer. A charming velvet frock for a december Debutante is of Black Chiffon velvet with a Ripple skirt tucked from Waistline to knee at either Side. Peplum of the velvet fall at Back and front Over the skirt meeting the groups of tucks at each Side. The bodice fastens Down the Back and is Plain but gracefully full at the front.

Over this skirt not into a belts is gathered a Chemise bodice of Cream filet lace veiling of flesh toned indestructible voile. The lace drops just below the Waistline and to it is attached a deep hem of the Blue velvet. The Loose tunic is confined at the Waist by a Girdle of steel beads. The Mode of the moment close Little bodice and widely flaring skirt expresses itself most definitely in the moments dance frock a a where it can have free swing. Street costumes must be More or less conservative but a dance frock May be As Gay As it pleases and this years dance frocks especially for the Debutante Are very Gay indeed. Light hoops of Feather one Are run into lace and silk petticoats to make tulle dancing skirts stand out coquettish by from the feet and some of the tulle skirts Are looped up into a a wings at the hip an invisible support of crinoline and Feather one holding out the bouffant drapery. With these excessive skirts bodices Are As close and Small As May be so that the figure above the Waist looks Dainty and diminutive. A sleeves Are omitted from the dance frock or Are added in almost transparent Guise. The Debutante is not supposed to Wear a pronounced Decolle Tage but some of this year s dance frocks would hardly come up to the requirements of modesty adhered to by our Grandmamma. V charming dance frocks Are of pastel tinted Pussy Willow taffeta or the same taffeta in Floral printings with numberless tiny ruffles and cording on the skirt and a bodice rounded out to show a quaint Little Tucker of net this also rounded out to show dimpled neck and boulders.
