For Spring '56, and for the Easter that is not too far away, the entire mood of fashion will convey a slenderizing, uncluttered look — from the hat you'll wear straight and level over your untroubled brow to the coat that will grace your figure smartly semi-fitted. Color- Wise, new fashions at Fowlers will take you breathlessly from winter into spring, with whites and delightful beige tones stealing much of the show, along with "hot" shades of peach, yellow, turquoise and green. Even handbags and gloves will be oh-so-different for the Easter parade, with no end of imagination shown by the designers. You'll be seeing jacket themes, 'easy' skirts and lightweight fabrics all through the new Spring fashions arriving at Fowlers. Come and see them — and come often in Ihese next weeks to see all that is NEW — and remember, too, that Easter fashions are springing into life on our Children's Floor jas well! Visit Fowlers two floors for the new in fashion! WHERE PRICES ARE PLEASANTLY LOW
