Out Of The Fashion Pan Kew York, Feb. 24-^Snow, rain and ?lush may delay "the" end of winter, but nothing so far has deterred store fashion directors from co-ordinating the season's new s:vles, colors and accessories into rne very alluring preview of, Spring rloihes. Shoppers, 'remembering their disappointments last season ci'-rln^ the pre-Easter week, .are rr.aking early selections this year. The Spring suit, rating first im- tortance in almost any wardrobe has been given the center of the fj.=hion stage, .with -the spotligh frequently falling on the light- colored or natural tone suit; Ash b>nrie and light beige are the fea- hired colors. .If In coats, they go over black or navy .dresses, prefer- tViy black. If in stilts, they may be worn with black or white blouses conventional stripes or checks, bu to! too bold in pattern. These natural blonde effects con v»y serenity, poise and distinction T!;ey requira meticulous groomini from head .to foct, and a spankin piece or two of gold costume jewelry for brilliance.
