NEW YORK -- The men's wear influence on women's dress is only just beginning. By next fall women may well be shoulder deep in natty tweeds and tailored attire. Right now, they can ease into the feeling with a hat.
Think of those jaunty panamas worn by gentlemen in warmer climes. Remember the --ing fellow in the coffee ads? Forget the ** horse, cigar and mustache but keep the image of the smallish sombrero he has on his head. That's the look. It's just the sort of hat you want now, to add a touch of spring and a lot of polish to any kind of suit.
