New York. Dec. 1.
The styles of twenty vJars ago seem
to hold a strong place in the minds of
the people this year, the one-piece frock
and the separate, so-called "top-eoat"
being particular offsprings of the clothes
of that day.
A practical innovation is this mode
of dressing, which has taken the place
of the suit in many cases. The dress
may be dressy enough to wear to many
things where a suit would be out of
place and the top-coat, if care is taken
in its selection, may be worn for even
ing as well as day-time.

An Old Frock Is This Smart Gown
The coat of the season is cut in a
variety of ways, each of which has some
particular style feature to make it prac
tical or smart. One is cut much like
the last winter's raglan coat, merely
belted a little closer to the figure so
that the curve of the waist may be
more in evidence. Or this same coat
may have a tiny round yoke with a col
lar and the full godet ripples pressed
into pleats, which open out at every
movement of the figure.
Another type of coat is that which is
semi-tight fitting at the shoulders and
flares widely at the bottom, in the
shape of a Cossack coat. Another is
distinctly of the Russian peasant style,
buttoning at the side and belted with a
wide belt. Around the bottom of the
skirt portion is a wide band of fur, also
at wrists and around the neck. The
heavy richness of this trimming is most
Another coat is cut -"ith the upper
portion like a sacque, having straight
lines under the arms and drooping
down considerably in the back. A flar
ing tunic is attached to this lower edge,
cut in a circular piece so that it stands
away from the figure almost, as though
it were either heavily corded or wired.
Hows of soutache trim the front and
around the hips and the hem. Large
button sare used do»n the front. The
skirt is very plain and rather narrow.
The kimono sleeve has had its day
and most of the sleeves of coats are set
into a regulation armhole, which is
