"There's too much freedom today," said a member of this school at one of the mammoth fashion shows that marked the opening of fall collections here. "That's why women look so terrible so often." It was her contention that the best times for fashion as well as for peace of mind about it were periods when there was a prevailing uniform. The mid-Ms, when most women tipped themselves into stiff, lined shift dresses, was one of those times. So were the early 50s, when petticoats and nipped waistlines were the rule and the 40s when the black dress and pearls prevailed. When there is too much choice, women become confused and choose the wrong things, advocates of stricter rules insist. These include a number of designers as well as people who sell clothes in stores. Faced with a multitude of separate parts that can be put together in a multitude of ways, many women can feel as distressed as a bride contemplating the furnishings of her first apartment without the help of a decorator. * * * CERTAINLY, permissiveness is rampant in clothes for fall, an extension of the choices available right now for summer. Having been hurt financially as well as psychologically by the attacks in 1970 centering on their dictatorship of the midi, most designers today are eclectic. If they show skirts, they make sure they include a sufficient number of pants, which have certainly become a uniform for many woiMsn during the 70s. The .type or pants is diversified too- some knickers, some culottes, some bloused at the ankle. And if designers show slender skirts and dresses, they include a full quota of wide ones, which is only wise since so many women are going corsetless. The diversification designers are reflecting in their collections, which run from tailored clothes through peasant-like ones, was most apparent at evening parties. A decade or so ago, most women would have called around to find out what kind of dress was called for. Today, they wear what they feel like, and none of them feel misplaced, whether they turn up in a velvet pants suit or a chiffon dress. Skirt lengths, measured either in inches from the floor or inches above or below the knee, have ceased to be a matter of concern. Designers, as well as women who wear clothes, pick the length that appeals to them. Nevertheless, rules, though lax, are not' absent. Any length goes-but knees are supposed to be covered, 1 except at the beach or on the tennis court. THE SHAPE of clothes varies from slim to ample, but the fabrics must be supple and, preferably, unlined. Stiff construction, even when tailored styles are involved, is out. Generally speaking, any- thing thai looks tight and constricting also looks passe, such as padded bras. While there is considerable choice in fashion, anarchy has not quite taken over. True, a woman can wear either pants or a skirt, whichever suits her best. But a crepe de chine shirt is likely to be the common denominator of both outfits. Possibly the single most obvious signature of the new season is a big wrappy scarf, poncho or blanket. It's not the easiest thing to manipulate, but it can make last year's shirt and pants look up to the minute. . Certainly, freedom is rampant in fashion, but chaos hasn't yet taken over. Between uniforms and anarchy, there is still a middle ground. t V UNIFORM SHOE SALE 10%-50%OFF All Uniforms, Smocks Men's Professional Jackets, Pants and Public Health Uniforms, Conductive Shoes NATURALIZED NANCY CAHILL | AND NURSEMATES SHOES All Sales Cosh Final A No Phone| Orders, Please Yvonne's Open Monday Nights 'til 7:00 P.M. 9:30 AJVI. to 5:00 P.M.
