Velvet yokes, sashes, capes and bows contrast with frocks. Sequins and diamente sparkle on the new evening gowns, and metallic weaves in daylight. Hostess frocks feature frilling or pleating at the hem, or kilting on cuffs and neck-line. Clips are important, whether it be to fasten a scarf or a draped neck-line. Faggoting is featured on yokes or in dainty collar and cuff sets. The new initial brooches of cut-out chromium fasten scarves or bandanas. The new cravats are very short. Scarves are worn with suits, coats or frocks. With suits and coats they are tied cravat fashion, or doubled and the loose end passed through the loop last formed. One new coat with a neat fur collar had a scarf passing round under the collar and tying in a bow in front. Many tweed coats feature scarf collars. One with braided ends had a braided beret to match.
An easy way to furbish up a last winter's frock is to make for it a little taffeta collar and scarf cut in one.
A useful set comprises a double-breasted corduroy velvet jacket with velvet hat to match.
