' Fullness in new skirts is also achieved by the use of. many gores or confin'.'ig fullness to the back with the front giving a . itraight hanging appearance. Softer Outlook · Although slim skirts are predicted to- continue their popularity through the new season most have been eased immeosur- · ably, often with .low . kick pleats placed either front or back, for a. softer outlook. j . : Distinctive of the full-skirted silhouette -is the suit with a full four-gored skirt arid short, molding a symmetrically closed jacket.

Popular new "jewels," in pastels, bright blue and red, appear in chunky sparkling crystal, tiny seed and porcelain beads as well as interesting · nugget-like baroque -pearls. They are combiner into imaginative chokers, chatelaines, fobs, twists and matching earrings. . The over-all elaborate treatment of Spring jewelry appears in the 'touches of gold leaf on beads, the big chunky proportions of necklaces and earrings, and the use of glittery combinations o£ crystal, gold and silver beads. Earrings, too, are strikingly different, in crest-like shapes, interpreted in seed beads, white pastels and multicolors. Square porcelain or large inverted dome shapes are also to be seen. 'Contrasting smooth anl rough textures, as, for instance, baroque !earls and round porcelain beads, produce truly dramatic effects. Blue, jslightly underscored with green, is slated for porcelain jewelry, .and is often combined with coral reds. Let It Gleam .

The dress might be in a soft blue and white floral print teamed with,a navy coat f r a t u r l n g a shoulder scarf of the dress print. Thi · use of the drets fabric for a bright color accent on the coat is expected to he one of the identifying marks of the 1952 coatdress ensembles. Collar, cuff, belt and lining fabrics are all used to coordinate the two. For instance, a-red and white striped taffeta dress is matched in the lining of a clear blue ottoman coat. Or a navy sheer crepe dress and a navy faille oat are coordinated by bright red taffeta in the belt of the dress and the lining of the coat.

Hemline Width Depends On Waist The width of the waistline 1 should guide the width of the hemline, claims one famous fashion designer. The exaggerated full skirt tends to give too much width to a silhouette with a nnt-so-narrow waistline and broad shoulders, says this designer. However, it the waist is slim but high and the shoulders narrow, a full skirt with a slender hipline, a skirt with a yoke or pleated sections across the hips should -be selected, for most flattering .effects. All Over The trim is the thing for Spring with big bows, miniature black belts, delicate "liner" collars of organdy on suits and dresses, featured for '52. Fashion On Top Look to shoulders and sleeves i for outstanding Spring fashion interest. Shoulders remain natural, but look wider with (he puffiness of low placed sleeves. Armholes arc deeper with strict modelling below. Sleeve interest can be found In most dresses with last season's full length lantern anl balloon style diminished to powder puff and mushroom forms, with the flare around the elbow only.
