Play on Proportion at Vermillion

Vermillion's Spring Fashion Show Line-Up

If you're the type to flirt with your fashion, then Spring is gonna be your fling-iest season evaaahhhh! Say hello to cropped jackets, wide leg trousers, bright colors and peplums. (What? You didn't think Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton wouldn't start a trend now, did you?) 

I gathered this information from the Vermillion Spring Fashion Show yesterday in Raleigh. The show proved to be yet another sartorial delight, which Vermillion customers have certainly come to expect in a place where 10 Crosby mingles with Balenciaga and Anya Hindmarch rubs the elbows of sporting Lela Rose. 

I could go on and on trying to describe the eye candy but a picture is worth a, vermillion...words...

These Instagram and iPhone pics are just a few give you a glimpse of the goods. Overall, an overwhelming sense of optimism is present now more than we've seen in the past four years. The world- or at least the crowd at Vermillion yesterday- is excited to get dressed again and the stock at Vermillion doesn't disappoint. 

Some of these pieces could be tricky, but don't feel overwhelmed. Just keep in mind that proportion is always key:

Wide leg trousers with slim fitting (possibly tucked) in shirts and a substantial heel (chunky wedges if you're short; a supportive flat if you don't need height)
Cropped jackets with hip length or longer tops
Longer peplums conceal wider hips...shorter peplums create the illusion of curves- either way, a skinny waist the peplum will carve
