The utter HUiliicity thnt women have shown since the be).'lnnni^,' of time In rejjnrd to ihe riiprlces of Ilie weather Ih n pnrt of the history of the clvHl- EUtlon of mnn. To return to that tic- lenf: It wns prohaMy the only time In history when thu climate wfis met with the rlfiht sort of costume. Since then, the world of women has pone on the path that suRnest.s ohstlnpcy.
Take, ns an exnmple of the perv-er.s- Ity of tho present moment, the Incom¬ ing fashion of 5-lnch sleeves nt n time when kid gloves are dldicult to pay. for. The women of today, we nre quite sure, have n-) Idea of nttcmptin;; the methods of the dlrectoire by goinK nbfiut the streets with entirely bare nrm.s, Josephine, the empress of the French, may have lielleved that tho short sleeve was correct for her time; but this Is n workday world, full of the ru.sh und Imiietus of activity—and open-air nctlvlty at tlmt. Wc mlsht have a chnnce of iookhiK like n grtliough they may sttuib them to a gowu that baa tbe wrung Uae la certain plu-^ea.

In Humming up the situntion of to¬ dny, one feels porr.v for the woman who would try to keep np with the i»hi(tlng knleldosr-ope of Rle.ve that the dpslgners have turned upon nn.
However, a comforting solution of this Btartling sftuntlon \n thnt every ulcere Beem.s to be In fnshlon, nnd If R womnn becomes paralyzed from even regarding the over-produ(*Tlon of new spring sleeves, xhe ran merely go on with the nleeve she hns nnd feel that she Is In pnrt of the picture, If not In the forepart of It.

Long Sleeves Fashionable.
And to show you how caprlcSotis ffl.shlon Is this year, the longer tho sleeve the more fashionable It Is; that
The sketch shows a cape of sand-col¬ ored silk cashmere lined with Jade- green crepe de chine. The high collar Is e^ged with green silk, which alao makes Ihe long cravat.
Is, If It starts out to be long In an evening gown It nmy cr)ntinue to tho knees; giving the effect of extreme novelty.
These long evening sleeves are of tulle, aud .sometimes of ^ne vermicelli Ince caught In some manner against tho arm, so thnt they will not fall away from the hand as It moves. This Is pure medievalism.
There are sleeves taken from the Italian renaissance. These arc cut to Immense bell-shaped openings at three- quarter length, rolled back on them¬ selves in a careless manner, nnd lined with Itoman striped silk or with crepe de chine In a blazing color.
There are pointed, bell-shaped bieeves which hang loose from a wide armhole, gaily faced at the lower edge, but held taut by a tight-folded wrist¬ let that spreads over tbe hand, after tho manner made fashionable by the eatly queens of Frnnce.
There Is a skin-tight sleeve of the dlrectoire, which also flares over the hand and sometimes has an ornate thumb-hole through which that finger Is thrust.
There are sleeves for the street that are formed of wrinkled cloth, that reach from the knuckles of the hand to flare like a gauntlet well above the elbow, leaving just enough space be¬ tween the edge and the shoulder to show the cap sleeve of another color and fabric.
Capes Are Numerous.
Thero are aS many capes as sleeves tills season. Even If you aro Indif¬ ferent to new clothes you eannot es¬ cape those two features. There Is no reason for your wanting to avoid them, for they Tnoons nre being •cut phort this yenr—ns a rule the !)rldegroom, after a brief fiirlomih for his wedding and the ensuing trip of a week or ten dnys, goes bnrk tn his regiment or to his ship nnd fhe bride Settles down quietly with her home people—or nenr them—nnd though she poes out for- mnlly, has naturally not much henrt for formal affairs.
The wedding day costume, however. Is another matter. It wotild be an un¬ natural bride who did nf>t clnlm her full privilege of bridal pnnoply, per¬ haps claim It the more detennlnedly because robbed of other privileges of brides In normal times. A woman cnn be a bride but once, and even in wnr- tlme she wants to wenr tho trnlling white sntln, the penrls, the orange blossoms nnd the symbolic veil which mny be hers on this one great ocni- Plon—and this one only—of all her life. Mnny a beautiful wedding gown hns been worn this year nnd the sum¬ mer wedding gowns promise to be no less beautiful than those of midwin¬ ter. Ivory white sntln, tho trnditlon- al 'n)rlde" satin, is the favored mate¬ rial fnr fho wedding (rown ami though the spring models keep to tho slender fillhonefte now Insisted upon by fash- Ion, there nre many lovely ways of breaking the straight, slim lines with foft draperies and panels of airy fiib- rlc. Lace Is again fashionable on the bridal gown and some nn^ trimmed with rare old jiolnt nnd Venice Inces hnvo come down as family heirlooms. Qf the newer laces, ehndow lace Is the fnvorite, because of Its dellcnto texture and lovely draping qualities.

Af^RANQING THAT NEW COLLAR
Pleee Regarded as One ef the Prettiest
Decorations of the Present
Thosrt now c-oPars that nre renlly long bins strips of fabric, mnde doable, are perhaps one of fhe prettiest bit.s of neck (iceessnry that we hnve had this Benson. They nre renll.v new, nnd they possess therefore the charm that alwnys nttncheis Itself to novelt.v. Moreover, fhey nre In themselves nt- trnctivp, Thev h-nd themselve.s to nil «ort.9 of grnneful nrrnn((ement, nnd they give a soft nnd becoming line nt the ne(k, no matter how they are ar¬ ranged.
To begin with, they nre mnde In the form of a double bins strip, from six to eight Inches wide, and perhaps n .vnrd or a yard nnd a quarter long. They nre tho simplest things In the World to mnke, for fhe double width of fabric Is Just sewed up, like an en¬ velope, then turned right side nut, the end left open Is blind stitched shut, nnd the whole thing Is pressed.
Hut In spite of the fart that these new collars are so ensy fo make, they nre well worth buying rendy made, for they aro sold In the shops reasonably In the most nttrnrflve fabrics.
These new collars mny bo worn In many ways. Of course the most usual wny Is fo bring It nround the neck, rolled over softly and tie It In a four- in-hand or lof)so knot at fhe end of the V-shaped line of the blouse In front. In this way these collars are worn on frocks of serge nnd foulard. Some¬ times, too, the ends are tied like a Windsor tie In a bow, with two loops and two end.''.
Sometimes a little bias fold of net Is stitched along one side of the center of fhe collar, nnd by menns of fhls net the collnr Is baKted Into position. Oth¬ erwise It Is best to pin It securely nt the bnck with a little silver cuff pin.
These collars are made In nntln, or¬ gandie, georgette crepe, crepe de chine nnd chiffon. They are made In every -color Imnginnble, iis well ns In white; nnd they aro even mnde In little <'becks. Some of them In foulard show nil sorts of (lesign.s, nltliough the beS]t foulnrd ones are dotted, Tlion there are others of black nnd white cheeks, in a is^tlier big fle^l;:ti, but one that Is very efTectlve, nevertliless, cither with a white or black or navy blue frock.

GAY BAYADERE SASH IS WORI^I
wide Ribbon Decoration Comes In
Rich Color Combinations; Nice
With Eton Suit
With her new Eton Jacket the sum¬ mer girl Is wearing a dashing baya¬ dere Itoman sash, which gives color and gaiety to her whole costume. These bayadere sashes are of very wide ribbon of faille weave and sub- etnntinl weight and tho sash Is long enough to gc^wlce nround the waist nnd fall in fringed ends Just below the hip at one side. The.se gay sashes come all reody to put on, with fringe sewed to the ends, In the neckwear and accessory departments.
If you are quite slim and willowy you can knot the sash ends over one hip. If you are rather plump and have a substantial sort of waist meas¬ ure, draw the sash ends through a large buckle and do away with the knot which, of course, takes up extra ribbon.
The Roman stripes In the bayadere sashes come In various rich color com¬ binations and almost all of the com¬ binations look well with an Eton suit of blue serge or of shepherd check Berge or cheviot.
WING JRIMMED, ROLLED BRIM
Tailored Frock of Navy or Black Satin With Colored Vest.
honette It Is difficult to understand, de¬ clares a fashion authority. They ap¬ parently do, for every advance style bulletin heralding a possible change Is eagerly read and the new etyles prom¬ ised awaited with breathless Interest.
The exi)erience of the past two years hns been that every heralded change of silhouette hns proved a false nlann, and from present prospects the rule will hold good during next fall and probably during the winter. This is looking a good way ahead; but fall styles are being discussed somewhat, and DO chnnge has as yet been sighted. Straight and narrow seems to be the rule.
The dress sketched, made of black satin for first preference, is cut on straight nnd narrow lines, and would be an excellent and very serviceable frock. It Is very simple and depends for distinction on good tailoring, and on the selection of the material for vest, collar and nndersleeves. Crepe do chine, faille silk, heavy silk crepe or plain satin, either in white or a llRht shape such as*'bluet, corn color, etc., mny be.used.
The wide sash Is caught with a larg€ flat buckle at the back, the sash end.« falling nearly to tbe edge of the tunic or oversklrt. ,
Navy blue satin might be nsed for c frock of this type with good effect with -vest, collnr nnd sleeves of blu( nnd white printed foulard. As the sea son advances silks continue to be mor* and more used for outer garments ol all kinds, wltli serge nnd kindred wool materials ns the trimming rather tlmr the other way ahout, as was formerlj the custom. Tho continued and in¬ creasing demand for wool for nrnij use makes It seem safe to predict that heavy silks and satins will play ai Important part In tho development ol garments for next fall and winter.
This stennlng velng-trimmed hat has a charm which le Irresistible. The nar- row rolled brim ie \h two-toned effect The arrangement of the wings is rather daring, but yery smart and the flowing veil, which is a popular fash- Ion this spring, aoftsns ths effect ef th« Whole. ^
From Triangle of Chiffon. Take a triangle of chiffon about 4C i to 48 Inches on each side. Edge 11 i with lace, a pretty silk Ince edging abfout three Inches wide, slightly gath-, ereil .around two whole Sides nnd to within twelve Inches from each end on fhe third side. Attach half a yard of ribbon to each of the corners where the luce ends. Can you begin to guess what it Is? Why the cutest little "matinee" you ever saw* in your life. The Bide where the'lace is attached for about twenty-four Inches goes around the neck, the plnin edges cross surplice style, the ribbons on the two corners tie in a sush bow at back, a lit¬ tle French bouquet of flowers ties the edges together under the arms to make sleeves, and the third point falls down the back and is held In place by tbe sash. It's so easy to make and it Is t^e cutest lltUe thing to wear that yoa could imagine.
