You can't miss. Hats will play a bigger role in the fall .scene than they have in many a year for the demise of the bouffant hair-do makes it possible for every woman to wear one. Fall promises to be a season' of luxurious furs and thick, soft wools in a myraid of colors. The perfect complement to all this elegance is a hat of rich velvet. The colors used are bold and beautiful. The jewel tones include teal, sapphire, cranberry, vivid red, dark plum, deep green and winey purples. Even the pastels are lively. You'll find bright sugar pink, mossy green and soft tangerine among them. There's a shape for everyone. Soft, swaggery Garbo-type brims will share popularity with bretons, turbans, jockey caps and cloches. Your choice of shade and shape can make you a new woman for any day or occasion. Because velvet is so drapable it can be fashioned to suit your mood, For ah air of Victorian elegance there is the soft beret- snood. For a touch of the desert, try the draped turban. The breton will create an aura of youthful vivacity. And the sophisticate will reach instinctively for the lofty ball crown of the cloche. They can all be YOU — under a hat. l/VliAA Bonnie ^ld^ (f3ride-elect, ^Jdonored Miss Bonnie Edgar, bride-elect of Donald G.
