The reason woolens and crepes— both print and sol Id-color crepes— click as a fabric alliance are twofold, say sppkesrnen for the American Wool Council. First. Easter comes early, and also there is great need to • stretch available fabrics by eking out wool will, "silk" and vice versa. Proof that women hail these fashions Is the clamor for the crepe dress, ensembled with the woolen coat The two will appear together for important occasions — like the Indian print dress in lawny tones (lower right), : which comes with its own^golden yellow woolen copt. After important appearances, the two garments will separate to lead a merry'life apart, with the bright coat- taking on one dress after an- olhej.' or, as another, example, lake a three-piecer—brief wool jacket of fuchsia, wool.skirt snd a polki dot navy' blouse, with the pjlnt veapperlng as the lining for the jacket (upper left). The bright boxy jacket will be used as a brief toss-on for a multitude. ,ot summer outfits— suits, dresses, and slacks. The self' sufficient, blouse .with a scarf tie i and navo; skirt wUl Unite and separate, ' according.' to their 'owner's whims, and 'Mil make a variety of smart combinations. The same versatility can be claimed l>y a tenm-up of solid color crepe and wool, oiie featured twosome consists of n dress of Icy blue crepe, ensembled with a tunic coat of lipstick red (uupcr right). Buttoned up from neck to hem, nnd as full-skirled and trimly belled las K Cossack's, the tunic is destined to brighten the life of many a dull little black or navl blue dress, Qulle able to make its own matches In a woman's wardrobe is the solo print dress or suit. Slated for such goings-on is Samuel Kass' background print crepe suit-dress splashed with while (above center). Gargantuan flowers nt thc top of the Jacket are set apart with an applique outline of shirred fircen velvet ribbon. Neckwear designed to vary and refresh suits and dresses includes many more types than the classic organdies, piques, and embroidered batiste. There are Tattersall checks, clan plaid ginghams, men's shlrt- Ings, and even table laces. Classic shapes in neckwear include the deep V collars sometimes with ruflled edges and featured ss convertibles to be worn buttoned or pinned high when preferred. Ruflly bow types, the new bib types which nil l:i scoqpcd-out U dceollclagcs in dress- ,£,- cs, ure among the new fashions. % Pique collars are news for their large ' size, with long ends carrying down U> tuck into the closing of thc spring suit.
