Activities: Hard 'dress-for-success' look softens for summer with straight skirts yielding to fuller styles, including pleated skirts that flare at the hip. Colors are softening, with tan, khaki and tweed edging out the conservative navy suit.

Much, of course, depends on your field, Posnick said. It's hard to generalize, because banking has different dress requirements than real estate, and education is different from law. Women in conservative fields like banking, finance and insurance probably still feel the need for matched suits, Posnick said. But dress standards in those industries tend to be more conservative for men as well. In less conservative fields and cities, skirts and jackets are acceptable office wear, and dresses worn with jackets are growing more and working, there's a kind of safety in numbers, added Phyllis Posnick, senior editor-fashion with Glamour magazine in New York.

"Women executives now have freedom to dress with a little more individuality," so they're adding more color and patterns to their fabrics and more variety overall. Silk T-shirts with stripes, patterns or soft pastels are blooming beneath those traditional navy suits. Women are choosing more relaxed cuts in suits, double-breasted perhaps, without the notched collar, or with a slightly longer jacket, Posnick said. That's good news, because longer jackets are "much more flattering." The traditional short jacket that ends at mid-hip calls attention to most women's broadest area. Skirts are bucking tradition, too, more popular.

But there aren't a lot of good office dresses available. It's easy to find printed silk dresses, she said, and those are fine for office wear. But it's harder to find a more sophisticated, well-cut dress. While many women wear suit jackets over dresses, some can do this better than others, she said. Too often, the combination looks awkward because the jacket fabric is too' heavy for the dress.

Ralph Lauren and other designers have introduced jackets and dresses together, but women should be careful when creating their own combinations, Posnick said. The new softness in career dressing will be very evident this spring and summer, according to Joan Kaner, a vice president and fashion By NANCY KLEM KORAN Gannett News Service For the career woman, the stereotypical suit and tie has sunk to entry-level fashion, with women at higher levels dressing in more relaxed and creative suits. And in less conservative fields and cities, the business suit is yielding to dresses worn with jackets. The trend toward softer, more individual work clothes is one sign the working woman has finally come of age. Where women in the '70s were climbing the corporate ladder, many of them have now arrived.

They're no longer bucking the old-boy network, but they're making networks of their own very successfully one fashion expert said. And with so many more women director with Macy's in New York. "For spring and summer, the blazers will be unlined, with less aggressive shoulders, and will lie closer to the body," she said. Jackets will be a bit longer and paired with a knee-length skirt that's close-fitting, then flares at the hip. "It's a new silhouette," Kaner said, featuring lines that are slender from the bodice through the hip, with movement in the skirt.

Dresses with the same silhouette are featuring scoop necks or straps at the shoulder. Wear them with a jacket at the office. After hours, off comes the jacket and the whole look has changed. Fabrics, too, are softer this spring. "There are lots of silks out there" used in unlined jackets, suits and pants suits, Kaner said..
