J-Alfdrto (le.) Upper Det Meinei tu**doy, Merth 30, 1965 Spring's Feminine, Understated Fashions Play Up Your Own Personality Spring Fashion Theme: Soft Lines/ For Worlds Of Feminine Flattery! There's n sliphtly prim nnd proper frclinp to new sprinn fashions, and it's undcrsromi by the Virtoviar nnd KHwnrd iftn mood of ninny of thr Inlrst accessories. It's nil pnrt of thr feminine movement in fashion and it's nil most flattriinp' Fabrics such .1? airy vrrprs and basketwenve wools are helping to create this softer look for spring, aided nnd abetted by such touches us trnpunto detailing on coats, nifties nnd bows on shirts, soft sectioning and shirring on dresses nnd the soft, drnpey look of many new hats. If fashion for Spring could be summed up in one word (which it couldn't) the best word to select would be soft. To illustrate the variety to be fovind on the spring scene, coats are both shaped and skinny for spring — take your choice! Many of them feature hidden closings, new beltings and deep artnholes. Wrap coats are an important new look, while above-the-ankle coats arc making a spectacular appearance. Suit styles also vary, from the dirndl to the lean silhouette. Special interest is focused on the big little suit with its flared skirt, precision-shaped jacket and soft, ruffled shirt, with the 3-piece suit continuing to gain attention. Skirts ore often fuller or gathered on a bias band, and topped with longer or hip-tipping jackets. Pantsuits echo the excitement over pants in a refined way by camouflaging them with a neat overskirt, while the Mary Poppins suit typifies spring's prim and proper look at its most becoming. Dresses for spring favor swinging pleats and go to extremes with either low belting or high skimmer styling. Enveloping collars and bulky loose jackets top many of the new designs and the popularity of the A-mod style reflects the Victorian influence on spring fashions in general. New too, is the cape dress . . . another reflection of the same mood. Spring hats are prettier than ever and more feminine than ever! The soft look is seen everywhere in turbans, or little hats with ostrich sweeps and tasseled caps. Brims are in evidence too, particularly in black leather swaggers. But the "small head" look prevails, of- ten featuring hack interest such as bows or drnpes Many hats have a tird-up kerchief effect and softei fabrics such as velvet, wool jersey or silk have come into their own. In sportswear, everyone's jumping into stretch jumpsuits and of roinse. the big news is thp pantskiit Culottes have been citified nnd are seen not only in skirt form but also as culotte-ilresses. Here the look is still snappy and young, mode and yeye, bringing the new Knglish chic into prominence. Sometimes copying the Knglish school boy, this look features delicate little detailings, miniature prints and foulards, longer jackets nnd swinging skirts, plus crisp white collars. The new units for spring are featuring distinctive patterns nnd interesting textures: ridges, lacy looks, airy nnd open weaves, "smoke rings," crinkly stripes, accented diagonals, herringbones, nnd chenilles. Bootleggers, or up-to-the-knee stockings that are cuffed closed with shoe laces, provide new excitement, along with stretch nylons. Some hose feature over the-knee garter tops ... all are designed to make a woman feel more like a woman, and to make a man notice! No sportswear story would be complete without sweaters and this season the variety is greater than ever. There are skinny ribbed styles that hug the body . . . sissified sweaters with crocheted lace edging . . . long, lacy, looks . . . sweaters striped like T-shirts . . . styles that feature enormous zippers . . . and the long-waistcd look everywhere! For evening, elegant crepes and delicately patterned cotton laces set the stage for both little dresses and the important costume look and the disco dress is still going strong, whether shaped simply, like a slip or flirtatiously ruffled. The new spring look doesn't stop there ... it goes all the way to milady's toes with shoes that feature soft and fragile silk straps or stretch sides and backs of elasticized peau de soie. And the little T-bone cut shoe is busy making its mark everywhere. In fabrics, the trend is toward brush stroke patterns, fine-line piques, dashing diagonals and small-scale prints. Good news for travelers is the emergence of new linen-look fnbiics that keep their fresh appearance from morning until night, and travel with ease. Girls, Look Pariy-Perfcd Every Day! If you've been invited to a big party this Spring holiday season, getting ready for it can be half the fun because the fashion forecasts are all fresh, young nnd swinging. Organize your plans for whnt to wear a few weeks in advance, so there'll be time for alterations, mending and shopping details. Decide on a dress first, then build an ensemble around it, coordinating your accessories. About your dress; experiment with the whipped-crenmy pastel shades, skinny disco dresses, wedding cake-tiered ones or some with ruffled accents. If you think a long gown may be appropriate, try that, too. Then, take an honest, hard look in the shop mirror and let fashion guide — not mislead — you to select the dress that reflects your most flattering im- > age. A word of caution about , its hemline: the short, short skirts look best on girls with long, slender Ifc-gs — so take it. from there. | While you're still in the ; launching stages, be careful that you don't get so carried away with the project of dressing-up that you neglect your complexion's future appearance. Plan on having your skin glow along with what you're wearing. The best way is to start putting your skin in the right mood about two weeks in advance. This would include proper cleansing, a sensible diet and plenty of rest. Put, yourself on schedule — then follow it faithfully. Thorough skin cleansing is essential, otherwise pore openings may get clogged and if they become infected, blemishes can result. Wash your face at least twice a day with The budget can't take it.
