Spring pants are soft and sheer, like a thin tissue over the leg. They will be made up of the same limp fabric as the new, long slinky dresses., as well as from velvet, slippery satin ciré, crocheting and laced up suede. All right day and night, the year round. And look for combinations: blouses half-cached under short sleeved silk T-shirts, anchored by some sort of dripping sash or heavy, elaborate belt, and head scarves trailing over one shoulder. More rights of spring: Veronica Lake hair and low boots.
