"Colors and Materials for Spring"

The newest color out in Paris seems to indicate that we shall see a quantity of red even through warm weather. From that source comes the news that yellowish reds or chrysanthemum shades will prevail this spring. Color has become so important that one of the first questions asked each season by storekeepers and customers alike is in regard to what shades will be worn. No matter how lovely a tint may be it fails to leave an agreeable impression if unbecoming to the wearer, thus making the study of stylish and appropriate colors one of the actual necessity for a well-dressed woman.
