All history, it seems, is reflected in
costume. The manners, morals, ways
of thought, .the conditions of pros-
perity or depression, find their in-
terpretation in the dress of a people.
In olden days this was true of the
attire of the men as well as of the
women, but with the formers' adop-
tion of a more or less uniform cloth-
ing, the selections of the male popu-
lation have become decreasingly in-
The Puritans present one of the
most obvious examples of this view of
fashion. They, a religious pepole
pioneering a new land, dressed in
coarse homespun materials of somber
colors. Severity of line and extreme
modesty of cut marked their costumes.
Wear Frivolous Clothes
The frivolous and extravagant
period of Louis XV. charac-
terized by a lavish use of jewels, silks,
velvets. and laces, contrasts vividly
with the Puritan era. Feathers, rib-
bons, curls and frippery decorated
male and female alike.
The trends in fashion resulting
from the World War is a more recent
illustration. With the majority of
men absent from their homes, it be-
camemnecessary for the vomen to ap-
ply themselves to every variety of
masculine work. The "boyish figure"
came into vogue. Waist lines were
moved down somewhere near the
knees to aid in the disguise of the fe-
male form and skirts were shortened
to avoid hindrance to strenuous ac-!
Shingled Bobs Populai'
Long hair gave place to shingled
bobs. Finally, the nation fell heir
to a moral freedom known as the
single standard which resulted in a
total lack of modesty in dress.
The economic situation is apparent
in styles, only, of course, when the
situation is dire and general enough
to affect all classes. The recent de-
pression left our people as a whole
too worried to participate in much
flippancy. Sobriety dark colors,
conservatism of materials as seen in
the preference for straight, simple
lines, and a general prevalence of,
sensible shoes reflected the existing
"hard times."
Then the reaction, previous to the

feathers, laces and an accent upon
the feminine figure appeared in the'
once again style-conscious land. More
gay and more "cockeyed" became
the hats; more frivolous and more I
colorful became the shoes.
Fashions Display Art
The story of our art consciousness
that may be read into contemporary
American fashion is another signifi-
cant point. The subtle and intricate
combination of color in even the in-
expensive models, combined with the
opportunity for self-expression and
ingenuity given the individual in as-
sembling her costume points to
America as a nation of greater im-.
agination and artistic sensitivities
than is generally accredited to its
