By GAILE IHJGAS NEA Woman's Editor NEW YORK —(NEA)—The new soft silhouette of the daytime dress for Fall marks it clearly as very different from its 1951 counterpart. Last year's look was crisp. This year, softness is apparent in both fabric and line. Waistlines wander from high to low. The empire silhouette appears in the collections of most top designers but the middy turns up Jn collections more generally priced. And throughout, the corselet midriff is gaining in fashion importance. The natural waistline, however, is never neglected. Empire or middy, it is clearly defined. The waistlcss look of the Twenties has no place in 1952. Skirts have much back fullness. Whether handled as inserts, side panels, side gores, pleating or tucking, all of It starts below the hipline and Is always soft. This makes for a smooth hipline and a generally slim effect even In skirts wtil a great deal of fullness. The draped neckline Is all-Important in daytime dresses. In variations, there are soft rolled collars, fichus of self-fabric and cowl drapery, J ewel ry n E ckli nes are back, harmonizing wth the softer Hues and fabrics. ness, from a dropped shoulder to a :Ight cuff. There are more wrist- ength sleeves, more sleeve length and more cover-up generally, in sleeves. Black dominates in these daytime dresses. It's shown in light woolens and creppSj hi saUns and taffetas that are soft, never crinkly. It also appears in silk barathea and silk faille. For the newly-Important ensemble, the black dress becomes allied with color. Then come the browns, in a whole range, and gray. The vivid colors—red, green and royal or sapphire blue-are stressed in dresses as well as In suits and coats.
