Chill in the air getting you down? Perk up with a huge dose of classic designs, unexpected details, and super-pretty pictures. Oh, and get to know the name Katie Ermilio
. Her newest spring '12 collection features backless peach dresses, bow-bedecked shorts in jewel tones, and peekaboo jewelry, giving us all the makings of a wardrobe fit for a princess — but without any cheesy undertones. We also greatly appreciate tulip silhouettes, clean-cut coats, and slim pastel trousers that can deliver some Jackie-O accessibility to nearly anyone's closet. In a collection that boasts womanly glamour, we see lots of potential for NYC-based Ermilio to be the
clothier of next spring's wedding-season (a bridesmaid's dream, no?), or simply to provide a timeless, chic collection from a super-talented young designer. Embrace your girly side and take a look at the entire lovely lookbook.
