This Is A Suit Year--All Year Fashion is startlingly explicit about the new suit look and fashion predictors are equally as explicit about this being a suit year, all year 'round. Well-dressed women will wear trim lightweight suits everywhere; to shop, to lunch, to travel, to afternoon parties, to office, even to weddings (including their own). The silhouettes are various. Jackets go from snug-as-bodiccs to a. lampshade spread; from a just-to-the-ribs length to well over-thc-liip. There's a new "bouquet" width at the top; new fullness flowering upwards from a stem-slim midriff. One of the best buys from both a fashion and a burigct point of view, is a Sacony suit.of Palm Beach. These suits are tailored of the best-behaved cool suiting imaginable. It resists wrinkles; jiel- riom needs a presscr's attention. It wears almost forever and actually washes just as beautifully as it dry-cleans. The new Sncony collection Includes many styles (and too many colors to enumerate). One good classic, aptly named the "Globetrotter," is all shape and understatement, a suit that makes a point of slimming. And it If equally as smart with furs as with a sweater and casual shoes. The "Vicwpointer," another very sulty composition of line and curve, has petal-shaped pockets and new high-drawn top width. The "Datcllncr" Is a nutton-up- or-not suit with lines that He close to the body. All of these, as well as many others In thin new Sacony presentation, are very flattering to mo-st figures. Ar.d this fashion house makes it easy to get a perfect fit. Their suits arc cut in proportioned size ranges for misses', petltes', and half sizes, with special styles for juniors. It's wonderful to get a suit that needs 'if any) only minor alterations! The price is a present-day miracle, just $25. Party Fetes Cecil Meekins Cecil Thomas Meekins, son of Mr. and Mr*. J. R- Meekins. cele- hrnted his seventh hlrthday Saturday with a party in the home of his parents.
