LTD. 1818 -3 AvenueS. Phone 328-2321 form of a 16-page booklet call- ed Sportswear, It's a Matter of Mathematics. The brightly-illustrated booklet shows the shopper how to assess her current wardrobe and decide what must stay, what must go and what can be mixed and match- ed for new fashion looks. Using such terms as frac- tions, addition, multiplication and division, the booklet guides the reader from a jum- ble of separates along the pathway to a total co-ordi- nated wardrobe. It recommends taking a hard look at what you already own, then trying the garments in various combinations until you come up with a good fashion effect. LIST YOUR NEEDS Then make lists of "go- withs" and "must-buys" be- fore shopping. Two important rules, the booklet stresses, are: "If it doesn't fit and it can't be fix- ed, forget it" and "Ex- periment." "Casual doesn't mean slop- says the booklet but adds: "If it works, wear it." The booklet also recom- mends taking a look at fash- ion presentations in maga- zines and stores to see how they mix and match gar- ments, colors and patterns. Then go home and try it with your own wardrobe, striving for a balanced effect. One "great such as a mad, plaid jacket that lights up plain tailored dresses, skirts and pants, can be a definite asset to a co-ordi- nated look, says the booklet. Accessories are also impor- tant as they can convey a sporty or sophisticated look, depending on how they are used. The booklet, also available in French, is the 10th in a series on fashion produced by the ILGWU's union label de- partment and is available free of charge.
