Summer of 1960 - TV stars Janet Lake (77 Sunset Strip; Have gun, will travel) and Nancy Nelson (Father knows best; The Untouchables) turn fashion models

    When play's the thing, why not dress for it in play clothes like these, modeled on the beach near Malibu, California , by actresses Janet Lake ("77 Sunset Strip," "Have Gun, Will Travel ") and Nancy Nelson ("Father Knows Best," "The Untouchables")? Most outfits are wash 'n' wear, need little attention to keep that crisp look. And they're coordinated for mixing and matching. Colors are bright, principally reds and blues. Decorative buttons, dickies and pockets add a gay touch. 

Nancy (left) poses in a cord-trimmed denim skirt with crushed belt. By Patty Woodard, about $12. Her denim-ticking crop top sells for about $7. Both are wash 'n' wear. Janet is wearing culottes (popular quite a few years ago and making a big comeback this season) by Ann Kelly. They're drip-dry cotton and acetate lightweight ticking appliqued with strawberries, about $11. Co-ordinated shirt sells for about $8. 

Janet models a nautical-blueprint shirt of cotton broadcloth; about $8. The tugboat pants of Wabana cotton are also available in red and blue, about $6. Nancy's cotton-broadcloth sleeveless shirt, like Janet's but in reverse colors, is about $5; matching tam, about $3. Cotton Wabana shorts, in same print, are about $4. All by Phil Rose. 

Nancy in combed-cotton car coat by Ardee Sportswear. Olympic emblems are woven into the braid trim of the wash 'n' wear coat (about $16) and Capri pants (about $8). Janet wears cotton-alpaca knit with insert. By Phil Rose, about $5. Knit pants, $6.
