Light wool crepe dresses with matching turbans and gloves in all
the pastel shades have become the new thing in spring styles. The
pleated skirt in many outfits is supplanting the flare, especially in
sports styles, although the latter is by no means out of fashion. Active
woinen, such as those on any caanpus, choose this cut of dress for its
simple lines. Its full-pleated skirt and shirt waist blouse are at the same
time appealing and practical. Worn now under a tweed coat and later
by itself, this dress is sure to find its way into most women's wardrobes.
