This explains in part why pique fills up wardrobe gaps when the inldseason thermometer climbs, why pique is a woman's favorite carryover into the next cotton-picking season. Conservatively styled—pique has never submitted to many dressmaker frills—the jacket or dress that will see service during dog days and will reappear in wardrobes next year is apt to be a classic or a semi-classic fashion. Safe from the changing whims of fashion are the two pique styles shown A smart but timeless two- piece suit (right) of Eisenberg'6 design owes its new feminine appeal to a tailored collar softened by a pleated jabot of self fabric. The trim white jacket (left), which is used as shown to cover up the halter top of a cotton dress of gunmetal gray, is another ex- ample of the classic styling tV" f . makes a tailored pique topper immune lo fashion changes. « material j., cl(!al , in| j (]lljd ,, anri p ,. c , st(J the se ± ,fa b r, of matching s.e.
