Vintage Paparazzi Fashions In Shades Of Autumn
Flannel with a flair: Constance Smith, of 20th’s “The Golden Condor,” wears a dressy version of an old standby—a gray 100 per cent flannel suit by Sacony. Fitted jacket is embroidered with black fleur-de-lis. Lapels, pockets: are trimmed with black faille. Straight skirt has kick pleat in back. Also in navy, brown or green flannel with black trim. $29.95, sizes 10-20
Three for the money: Marge Champion, above, of M-G-M’s “Everything I Have Is Yours,” models a stunning casual suit that comes in three pieces—tailored three-button jacket, matching skirt and contrasting plaid skirt. Jacket worn by Marge is in a warm beige tone, with brown and white plaid skirt, by Rosenblum of California, in a California Desert Bloom fabric. Suit also comes in red, green, coronation blue, navy, gray and brown, all with matching and contrasting plaid skirts. The three piece suit costs around $55.00. Sizes 10-20.
In the neutral corner: Muted grays and beiges are a very important part of the harvest color scheme for fall. This Handmacher suit, modelled by Grace Kelly of United Artists’ “High Noon,” is in a beige that’s both distinctive and flattering to most skin tones. Of Miron gabardine, the fitted jacket features a tiny wing collar, interesting spread wing pockets at the hipline. Skirt follows the current straight line. In sizes 10-20, 7-15, price $60.00
Fall’s neutral story in knit: Monica Lewis of M-G-M’s “Everything I Have Is Yours,” models two beige knit dresses that will hold their shape, don’t have to be pressed. Two-piece, left, has straight skirt, separate jacket with tiny collar, loose, easy-to-wear, three-quarter batwing sleeves. Price, $29.95. One-piece, at right, features the new full skirt that is flattering even to the fuller figure, also stresses the becoming batwing style sleeves. $39.95. Both dresses are by Lass of Scotland, in 100 per cent wool chenille yarn, sizes 10-18. Also available in other lovely new harvest shades, as well as black.
Stressing the muted, soft tones so popular for fall, this beige blended wool dress, modeled by Grace Kelly, introduces a different note with its yellow and white striped top. Small gold buttons march gaily down to the waist, where the Sacony waistband insures a perfect fit. Collar may be worn open or closed.
