UN1FAX Zip Up A List of Expendables By RUTH MILLETT "What one of your modern conveniences would you most hate to give up?" Every now and then somebody puts that question to women. But nobody so far as I know has ever sought an answer to: "Which one of your modern INCONVENIENCES would you most like to get rid of?" I've got a list waiting in case anybody ever does ask the qucs- -tjon. High on the list is the back zipper. Why dress designers don't put the zipper on the side where a woman can manage to zip and unzip herself without calling for help, I can't imagine. Another modern inconvenience is the overpackaged package . . the kind that takes. 10 minutes to get into. When you have fi­ nally reached the cocoon-wrapped product, you have a wastebasket full of paper and cardboard to dispose of. Still another is the auto that you have to step down into to enter, and step up out of to leave. Combined with the current fad for knee-high skirts and needlepoint heels, a woman getting in and out of a car these days is about as graceful as a long-legged crane. Then there are the household appliances. As they have become more and more automatic, they have become so complicated that if you have three of them out of order at one time, you have to have three different "specialists" to repair them. They're wonderful when they work, of course, but they worked a lot more of the time before they were asked not only to do the work for the housewife but to think for her, too. And how about that piped-in Dresses Show Their Sleeves Fashion has something different up its sleeves for fall dresses. It's the sleeved look, making a big comeback in new and exciting styles for daytime and dressy wear. For daytime, fall's relaxed body-conscious dress silhouettes feature raglan sleeves, shirtsleeves, cuffed sleeves, bishop sleeves, deep armhole sleeves, kimono sleeves. After-five, butterfly sleeves flutter on feminine chiffon cocktail dresses, and even evening gowns cover-up with long sleeves trimmed with embroidery or encrusted with "jewels."

Now they not only keep your fashion ways gloves emerge as a hands warm and protected, but they add the last touch that unifies the over-all costume. Newest with the tweeds and Sportive costumes that are so fresh on the scene are the sporty pigskins. They're most right in the neutrals from beige to brown tones, with handstitching and often metallic tabs or buttons to add an even more Sportive look. More and more, too, one finds discreetly tailored gloves being worn for daytime, gloves stemming from the plain and ladylike classics but newly spiked with imagination in their tailoring. These well-bred gloves can borrow many touches from the gentlemen — saddle-stitching, brassy or gold-toned cufflinks — even stretch leathers for the ultimate in comfort. New leathers including the stretches are appearing to add new interest. There are stretch suedes in elegant lengths, there is Saffian once exclusively the bookbinders leather, there are new lizards and new treatments of the old standby favorites. No longer will the little "white glove" be an adequate wardrobe for the fashion-conscious woman. Beloved and elegant though that be, fall's new gloves add a fashion excitement you won't want to miss. hews, too, by muffling up for day and baring beautifully for evening. Daytime dresses display turtle necks, stovepipe collars, scarf or ascot-filled V-necks, detachable cuffed or rolled collars and bowed "Oliver • look" necklines. Dropped shoulder jumpers are worn over soft choirboy or Byron collared long-sleeve blouses, or turtle neck sweaters. For evening, dresses feature front or back decolletage, and are often accompanied by jackets. Skirts for fall's skimmer, sheath and shift dresses are soft and slim shaped into easy A- lines, center pleats, panel fronts or bias cuts. They remain thq same flattering length for daytime, but drop to-the-floor for the most feminine and romantic evening dresses seen in years. Fashion's "long look" is at its most luxurious in dresses for elegant evenings out or at-home. Floor - length crepes are everywhere, as casually styled as shirtwaists, or real "femme fatales" ready to slink into evening with side or back slits, "naked necklines" and opulent cover-ups. Costumes Important The costume is important for both day and dress wear. Simple one or two piece daytime dresses are worn under matching or co-ordinated jackets or coats. Evening accompaniments are luxurious capes, jackets and floor- length coats. Fall's wnist is lifted for high- rise effects; slightly raised in front and dropped In back; slung low for a flattering stretched-out torso; or unmarked. Dressier styles have a high fitted front and a fall-away back. Many of fall's dresses have "carved" bodices, shaped with welt seaming, while others feature blouson bodices, often ending in a low hip-belt. Reflecting Fashion Tht two faces of fall fashion ate reflected in dress fabrics for autumn. In daytime dresses, fabrics have a casual, countrified air. The emphasis is on herringbones, pinstripes and "mannish" tweeds, along with "dressier" mo­ hairs, worsteds and wool crepes. Coat dresses come in real coating weight tweeds and woolens. Nighttime's the right time for opulent crepes, velvets, silks, brocades, chiffons and matelasses, often richly adorned with jet, braid or beading. It promises to be a colorful fall in dresses with plenty of cranberry, teal and other blues, vintage tones, winter navy, gold, topaz, brown. Fabrics played an important role in the designs shown at the Paris fashion collections. Roberto Capucci won applause with this two-piece confection (left). The delicately glittering fabric is made of sheer pink nylon organdy and transparent Lurcx yarn. For extra impact, the salt is striped with bands of beading. For the casual suit (right) by Balmain a thick, yet lightweight tweed of "Orion" acrylic and mohair is used in pink, mauve and white. The short jacket, with slightly nipped in waist is a classic with this designer.
