Fashion & Style: Spring is traditionally the season of color, especially pastels. This spring's palette combines neutrals, especially gray, with invigorating brightened up shades of traditional spring favorites. Spring of '09 will play with the same brights of last year, but kick them up with deeper tones and neutrals. Spring collections for '09 feature bolder shades and more of them, as well as tempering soft shades of the same color with bolder versions of it. The JustLuxe shopping mall is already gearing up for Spring, with luxurious fashions in bold hues and classic neutrals.

Grassy Greens
If green's your thing, then you should consider stepping into our Calvin Klein Jisu silk jersey dress. Temper the greenery with heels in a neutral shade, like the Apepazza wedges in beige.

For a bolder take, the YASP Placket Blouse will take you from the office to the dinner date, paired with a pencil skirt or trouser jeans.

If a green dress isn't your style, accessorize a neutral toned outfit with bolder shades of the hue, like the Cuba - Turquoise and Green Murano Glass Ring by Antica Murrina Veneziana.

Anything but Mellow Yellows
Spring of '09 is featuring yellow in shades that are anything but mellow. Pick a bold lemon yellow, like our perfect for any occasion Missoni Isola tunic dress. For evening, step out in Moschino Cheap & Chic Flared ruffle dress. Temper the brightness of either dress with simple accessories and neutral heels, like the Alberta Ferretti Chain sculptured wedges.

If your skin tone won't allow you try yellow over, pick up the shade in small ways, with casual but bold colored flats, like Marc Jacobs Patent Flat ballet pumps or the dressier Christian Louboutin Marisandal flats or a handbag, like the Pinko clutch with tasseled zipper . Lemon hued accessories work well day or night with an outfit as basic as jeans and a T-shirt or an evening shift.

Lovely Lavender
A traditional spring color, lavender works well on its own or combined with neutrals like gray or white.

The Heich sheer blouse plays with both shades of purple and spring's affinity for translucence.

From bolder to fuchsia to salmon to rose, spring of '09 is luxuriating in pink.

For the office, try the Foxcroft Fitted Three Quarter Sleeve Shirt in Raspberry. For play, try the flounce tbd Sweetheart Neck Tee in magenta.

And to relax, luxuriate in the ultra comfy feel of the DKNY Racerback Camisole in Rose.

Blue Skies
The onset of spring brings back blue skies and light fabrics. Spring of '09 uses a brightened shade of navy to mimic nature's blue skies.

To celebrate the return of warm weather, try LISA CORTI's 3/4 length, wrinkled fabric skirt, perfect for a picnic or barbeque.

Men can get in on the blue trend with cufflinks, like the Blue Square Sterling Silver Double Sided Cufflinks from Forzieri.

When in doubt, pair all of Spring's colors with stabilizing gray to help tone down the bold shades. And whenever a color doesn't show off your skin tone, feel free to experiment with it in small doses, like a shoe, bag or accessory.
