Uvecd suit, worn with a sweater or simple woolen shirt, and other accessories with a "look of affinity" for tweed, s more than a new fall style. It's a new mode of "dress for American women," says 'Brigance, a designer who has helped to give :weed suits their new look ot own-aiid-country elegance. "A tweed suit worn with a sweater," says Brigance, "dresses women warmly and tastefully, even without a coat. Like their English- lady cousins, whose suburban life is spent in and out of doors and who also mush through all kinds of weather, American women are finding in tweeds a new way to cope with winter." Whether the fabric for their new winter "dross" is as rough to the touch as hop-sacking or as smooth as silk, it's textured in the best tweed traitition. It. has suppleness and warmth. It Is woven in plaids, checks, stripes or monotones for super subtleties or for color contrasts that are sharp and sure. There's an example of the "sharp and sure" contrast between pat- terned and plain tiveeds in Bii- gance's suit of red and gray. The double-breasted jacket is a checkerboard of red and gray, enseinblcd with, a gray turtle-neck sweater. The skirt is monotone red. Here are accessories with a "look of affinity" for Ills tweed suit, which Brigancc picked. A beret of red beaver felt matched to the red tweed, is trimmed with a pheasant feather, a jeweled clip. Also matching are red calfskin rminps. laced ' and tied ghtllie- fashlon, and & small, compact bag of red alligator, swung from a shoulder strap.
