REOUU4DS DAILY FACTS Tuesday. March 3, 1W4 — 5 Shape, Not Fit In Soff Look Of Spring '64 Shape without fit is the key to the new look in coats. The silhouette is softly touching the body; it is curving with a minimum of seams. Some coats feature Uie illusion of front fit with backs that truly swing. There will be more set-in and raglan sleeves. Pockets appear evcrj-whero, high and low, and in all shapes — patch, square curved, diagonal. Collars are generally small and notched or they are a rolled ring. Jf a n y coats have lowered collars just made for scarf fill-in. Tlie double - breasted detailing continues strong, and the semi-fitted sleeve retains its favored place, too. Coat fabrics are exquisite — especially the softer, lighter, textured wools in the yummy confectioner's colors. There's a military look to many of the coats seen in the new collections and they are indeed handsome. These styles, although crisp, still offer the soft'mood tliat's cutting across all of fashion for spring. No longer is a "young fashionable" (and tills term applies to every woman) confined to one silhouette. This spring the look is soft and feminine — and there is a fashion for everyone. Coats and suits feature silhouettes witli high-rising, subtle shaping at the bodice — conversely, with pleats or soft flares to indicate low movement. Interesting fabrics and bright, new tones abound. Fashion salutes the military, too. . . and many coats and suits have brass buttons, epaulets or sleeve straps. Sometimes all three regimental effects appear — but mainly, these embellishments are used with discretion for a finer, more luxurious look. According to the New York Coat and Suit Association, "Careful seaming is highlighted this season and at every price level, good tailoring is emphasized." Color Charted Color is emphasized, too. Fresh and refreshing are the true white, the oyster whites, the vivid golds, the brassy yellows. . . the blues that range from "sky'' to aqua — and on to briglit navy. The pastel and kelly greens — and even a new version of olive drab that has a golden glow and isn't drab. Pinks gi\e tlie Spring scene a glad glow. Pale pinks, rose pinks, melon and shocking. Lipstick paints the town red — and a new surge of violet is welcomed by those who look their best in these tones. OUier influences include the easy Chanel look — coUarless and chic, the trim, slim notched-collar reefer. Blazers and skirts capture compliments — as do full length capes — or cape effects on both coats and suits. Little Details When belts appear, they are usually behind-the-scenes, at the back. Multiple pockets of a 11 types are newsworthy as are buttons of every material, shape and almost every quantity. Fabrics are flatter in surface texture — focusing attention on coverts, twills and mens-wear worsteds (tliese are particularly good for reefers and regimental fasliions.) Shetlands look new again — as do soft, monotone tweeds and novelty worsteds. Sillioucttcs are soft and supple — so be sure that yotu: colors and fabrics go really dramatic: THE COUNTRy LOOK - Remains in favor for spring with fashions scch as the textured stocking and sport show playing a big role. This seamless slocking comes in a wide variety of colors to complement shoe shades. Medical Record New in the world of baby care is the Child's Medical Record.
