There imist be some principle of design behind it that makes it easy to look at. Try this "rliyllimic" pattern for occasional variety. There ore two kinds of rliylhm— wnvy 'linos and repetition.

And no doubt it created u style trend. That's enough to ninkc us women start worrying over some of the outlandish bits of frippery we'vo fulleu for in our time. Did we wear a snood because n fashion designer decided It would be amusing to wear her shoppinc bag instead of currying it?

FAM, FOR "Hippy LOOK" Did we struggle with tnc upswept mir-do because some big name in the hraiily business decided she icnlly couldn't do n thing with her hnlr and just shoved it up on top of her head, scrubwoman fashion nnd called it a new trend in hair styling? And now are we about to foil for the new "hippy look"—ns New York fasliion writers are describing the new silhouette—because some middle-aged dcifener decided to give up the struggle to keep a streamlined figure? •'•'•• " • That story Is 'enough to ' m-ike Us wonder.
