Those are the favorite fashions for the young and gay. Never has there been more wool in Fall evening collections than this season, and always the tendency- is Cowards lighter weights. Draping has become <a fine art informal fashions. Tucks and soft The Fall fashion picture is full of surprises—and coats are in the lead. Silhouette variety spices Fall coats. Fitted waistlines make news in softly treated style. They vary from the high-fashion Trench coat, with its huge collar, fitted waist, important rcvers and pockets, to the full swinging topper, with a deep collar and wide, fur-banded cuffs. Toppers for clay and evening are many-styled. The., floor length, wool coat is still restricted, but wool evening wraps arc to toe found in shorter lengths made formal by the use of braiding and embroidery or velvet accents. Toppers show fullness throughout—• whether fitted or swinging free. • .'•' Full sleeves give the newest look to coat . . . melon, lantern, leg o" mutton and bishop . . .and yokes and drop shoulders'vary the classic pattern. •'. • Belted daytime, three-quarter length, double breasted coats, with deep rovers—and single breasted, regular sleeve, belted types, with full pleated skirts—are news. There are many collarless dressy coats, with huge bands of fur used at the bottom of a full skirt that flares from a filled waistline. These coats have wide fur bands on open flaring sleeves. Soft-surfaced coatings are in the trend for Fall, and richness of color gives added elegance. Some novelties are shown—and .black, brown, winter blue and the rich foliage reds and spruce greens will be volume colors. While wines and off-whiles are slill popular,' 1 and have been given varying fur treatments. The tendency of furs to go blond gives beige, grey and off- while woolens added impetus. Suils follow the same varied trends . . . They are in pencil slim, slriclly tailored, or soft dressmaker types, with accent on sleeves. Many suits have a baggy, loose look^round.the.waistline . . . loose sleeves, with larger arrrihole's "of course, novelty -buttons and interesting, collar and pocket details. There are envelope sleeves—kimono sleeves—push ups—dolmans —and sleeves that are bloused with a tailored ci|ff. Fabrics are'laking on a silky look, and Ihe newest woolens show n fondness for sleek surfaced flan- nels'or silky broadcloths, in the new, "rise and shine" trend in all fabrics. That little -wool dress is in every category; in jersey, crepe, gabardine, flannel, fine worsted and tweed; in the daytime, semi-sports, and sportswear class. For luncheon, .daytime and town wear, it. comes in crepes, sheers, hard and soft worsteds and woolens. Royal blue with black—silver buttons with grey wool—gold with brown—and gold kid belts with brown—and gold kid belts with brown, black and beige—as well as gold nailheads used in fine linos and much more carefully and discreetly than the sequinsand glitler of Ihe preceding season—all are part of the dress picture. Dressy afternoons show "V" and sweetheart necklines. Scallops and cowl are new neck treatments, anj sleeves are bracelet length, pushed up, full sleeves, fla-ing open sleeves, or the very smart three-quarter sleeve with the leg o- mutton top. For evening, the dressy tail- leur with a long slim skirt, has assumed great importance . . . high neckline, long sleeves, with 'a lowered waistline and longer jacket as center of interest. Black and beige, grey and dregs of wine are the new dress-up suit colors. These wool tailleurs are not only very smart but very practical, and are highlighted by bead embroidery, touches of velvet, giving that "touch of Venus" called "elegance."
