MARCH. 17 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE BRIMS AND BOWS EDICT OF PARIS Face Is Flattered by Treatment of New Watteau Hats. -.Both- of which gives the woman of* today an opportunity of dealing kindly with her features, in the chdioe of a hat. If she finds brims give a softening effect . . . and nat- ter her more than any other type, ihe'jmay have them for every oc- masion. If 'the tiny cap-like models, worn jauntily toward the back of the head give her a piquant, youthful appearance which is so desirable, she may wear them as much as she likes . . . for they are also adapted in so many materials and are of so many different types that she could choose a dozen if she liked . . . and have them all different and distinctive! Selection Only the Start But one thing she must realize . . . she isn't thru when, she has selected her hat . . . by no means. For wearing the new hats is the greatest art'b-f all ... and it takes experimenting before her own mirror to find just the right angle at which to place the new hat over the right " the proper area of the eye" forehead to display . . . just' the right amount of coiffure to peep out from under the line of the .hat whether it is the small hat or the one with brim tucked up at side or back. Beauty or Smartness . . . or Botli When fashion authorities themselves disagree as to whether it is sufficient to be pretty or if it is riations of both . . . all coming under the same general types, that the two fashion terms classify spring millinery quite adequately. ,ln the halo hat, you will have snug-fitting models to wear witU your tailored suits and frocks . . . or you may have them dressed up with halos of flowers, petals or other forms of ornamentation until they become the ideal little hats for tea or dinner. Model Is Modernized The Watteau h'at is reminiscent of the romantic shepherdess, but is greatly modernized to greet the 1931 fashion. In general it is the brimmed hat, caught up at the side or back, in numerous ways to flatter individual wearers. Like the halo hat, it will go everywhere, if treated properly. For general wear it will be trim, and tailored looking . . . for afternoon it will have juat that drooping slope to the brim that is such a fitting accompaniment to dresses of silk or chiffon.- Two Colors Better Than One The two-tone or two-color hat originated, no doubt, because ,of the prestige of the tailored suit with Its blouse of a second tone or one that frankly contrasts. For that matter, It doesn't need to rely upon the color contrast In suits for its existence, since every costume of 1931 flaunts colors and combinations of colors. The early tailored types of hats have brightly colored trimmings on black or navy blue hats . . . strong colors like cherry and flame reds, not being Milliners have shown stich ingenuity in manipulating lines, brims and crowns, such originality In choosing materials and trimming touches that a brimmed hat this year for 'example, is definitely a "1931 brimmed hat." A beret this year cannot be classified with those of a season ago. It looks as if we are going to need a complete wardrobe of 1931 spring hats. Costs Lower This Season But one nice thing about it . . . you will be able to buy them for so mubh loss this year that it will not be so very much of a strain on your purse to "start frojn 'scratch" . . . for millinery is right in step with the- new economy in fashions that is so noticeable and so gratifying this year. ,*, Hines Announces His Recommendation for Hospitals, on Coast WASHINGTON, March 17. Veterans' chairman Administrator of the federal H i n s s board o more important to be smart, the 1 considered at all unusual'or too ex- individual is left 'in a quandary as to which to choosa. One says "nothing considered merely pretty and becoming is approved of at all." Another Bays "be pretty in the new hats." We agree with both, but we know it Is possible to he .both pretty and smartly modern with such an infinite variety of styles, materials and trimmings as we are shown in millinery .this year. We only say "be very careful not to overdo the prettiness." It is such a temptation to see only the soft flattery the hat gives to the face, without getting up to view the entire effect in a full length mirror. An Angel or a Shepherdess?
