Hostesses Will Wear Jumpsuits 

The velvet pants and ruffled blouse uniform for holidays is gone, departed in face of the jumpsuit invasion. This year's holiday hostess will show her fashion sense by wearing an elegant jumpsuit, sleek of line until the pants bottoms, which widen out gracefully.

Satin-back crepe makes a white jumpsuit with a spaghetti-strap tiny bodice like an evening gown, very wide bell bottom pants legs. Ribbon knit makes a long shaft of a jumpsuit that looks like a Persian print, sleeveless but covered, the legs widening more gradually than in bell bottom styles.

Even separates take to the jumpsuit look, with the pants always full-length, cut straight or flowing, the top embroidered with sequins or brilliants. The Jumpsuit silhouette is much easier to wear than the once-dominant tight Capris.
