Spring 2010 Colour Trends

White - especially pants, leather driving shoes, and accessories.

Distressed and destroyed denim in lighter shades - paired with crisp dress shirts for the perfect contrast.

Killer khaki - khaki is a Hindi word for 'dust'. Try monochromatic looks for a simple and stunning statement, especially when accessorized with pops of colour.

Mad for metallics - silvers, muted golds, beautiful bronze. Particularly effective in leather goods, shoes, and statement jewelery.

Browns - I don't want to sound cliche and say that brown is the new black, but brown seems to bring a much more interesting depth and character than traditional black. Try a rich chocolate it cognac for shoes and small leather goods, opt for a dark brown suit, or a warm caramel leather or camel hair jacket. You'll love the added dimension.

Green green green - not just the en vogue colour for the environment, green is the rage for spring. From loden to celery to lime to Kelly, green looks good on nearly everyone. Find the best shade for you complexion and rock it with style and grace.

Gaga for Gray. I've always loved gray, regardless of the season or the presence of the sun. Monochromatic gray denim with a light gray polo shirt make the perfect canvas for a bright orange belt. Gray suits add instant pizazz, especially when anchored with a dark vneck sweater in purple, navy, or wine. Gray shoes and small leather goods compliment any denim or dark ensemble. I love gray. Even for decorating the home. One of Christian Dior's favourite colours was gray. And interior designer Nate Berkus loves to paint walls gray and outfit rooms with gray furniture and accessories. Gray weather is not nice. Everything else gray is simply fabulous.

Accentuate with a vibrant splash of colour - corals, acid electric blue, pale pink or lilac, incredibly light yellow.
