Go from reluctant to confident Bright Winter 

especially for silver-haired and low contrast Bright Winters

all you need to explore your brightness and be sublimely enchanting

“The lesson on choosing spectacles was worth the cost of the course.”

You know you are a Bright Winter.

But you don't like to stand out, and perhaps a little hesitant to take on all the bright aspects of Bright Winter.

You are feeling a little overwhelmed by the brightness of your fan, and unsure how to create a functional wardrobe without going out of your comfort zone, or looking too conspicuous. 

You're struggling to put together a Bright Winter outfit. You can't think of a way to tweak the outfit so that you can look good in them anyway.

“This course filled in so many gaps and gave me many, many "aha!" moments.”

You find it hard to confidently pick the right colours when you are shopping for Bright Winter.

And you know you need neutral/cool colours with high intensity, but how do you get comfortable using them?

Learn how to dress like a Bright Winter

without feeling like you look like a clown.  

You can be a radiant Bright Winter even if you're scared stiff by those bright colours.

With this course, you will be confidently shopping and picking outfits to fit your Bright Winter season. 

And as a consequence of that, you'll save energy, time and money!

So if you're a new Bright Winter and you need a kick-start to revamp your wardrobe.

Or: It’s been a while since you had your colour analysis and you haven’t used it as much as you hoped.

You need a refresher course on the essence of Bright Winter. You long for simple guidelines on how to start turning that knowledge into skills.

You wish you could bottle your colour analyst and have her with you in your handbag. You wish she could sit on your shoulder when you you go through your wardrobe. 

This Personal Colour Analyst should whisper in your ear when you are planning to invest in a new garment. She should pop out of your suitcase when are packing for that cruise you have been planning for a decade.

What you want:

Some Bright Winter magic for your outfits

...but without being too conspicuous

A Colour Analyst at your side

...but only with sensible, down to earth advice 

Examples and ideas to inspire you

...but real life examples, not red carpet outfits

What's covered in the course:

Module 1. The Basics

What kind of colours are perfect for Bright Winter? How do you spot your version of blue, red, green, yellow when shopping? How exactly do you find the correct intensity? Do you need examples of how much contrast is just right for a Bright Winter outfit?

In this first module we'll cover all the basics. All the way from describing the essence of Bright Winter with examples and illustrations, to a thorough presentation of Bright Winter colours (all of them, in great detail and with lots of images and photos), explaining Bright Winter value and contrast and showing you how you recognize Bright Winter intensity in the wild.

Module 2. The Details

How to choose the best neutrals? And which neutrals make the best foundation to build a Bright Winter wardrobe on? Which kind of brown would be the perfect Bright Winter brown? How much colour and how much neutrals? Do you need to use all the colours in your fan? Accessories, makeup? How do you keep expressing the Bright Winter essence as you grow older?

In Module 2 we cover the ultra important Bright Winter neutrals. So important as a backdrop to all those vibrant colours. We also talk about pattern and scale, textures, and how to accessorize like a pro. And last but not least, some inside tips on how to put together Bright Winter outfits that truly communicates the vibrant elegance of this brilliant season.

Module 3. The Hard Stuff

Putting together outfits that don't scream wild colours, but are perfectly Bright Winter. Finding the right balance between winter's strict crispness and the spring playful element that makes Bright Winter such a magical season.

And a whole chapter on how to get the hair colour right! 

And if you're a little afraid of being a Bright Winter, how do you express your true Bright Winter season when you actually are quite subdued and introvert as a person? Not to worry, this is covered in great detail.

There is also a special section for the silver-haired or low contrast Bright Winter!

What if there was a way you could have Your Personal Colour Analyst with you at all times?

One who would give you:

...Help to dress as a Bright Winter even when you're having a hard time accepting that you are a Bright Winter.

...Easy access to the essence of Bright Winter, organised and easy to find when and where you want to refresh your memory.

...Examples that illustrate all the aspects of being a Bright Winter.

...Everything you need to create your own personal version of Bright Winter, and to transform the information into valuable skills.

This masterclass teaches the essence of Bright Winter in a way that is easy to understand and easy to use. It is a practical guide to life as a Bright Winter. You will be able to transform the knowledge into skills for your everyday life.

It's like having your own PCA consultant available at all times, easily accessible om mobile phone or tablet, any time you want to consult her about your Bright Winter season.

“Jorunn, I took this master class some time ago and loved it. It continues to be an excellent resource, especially the Colors section. Your pictured clothing in Bright Winter colors is incredibly helpful for online shopping. I split my screen between your color page and the item I am considering and take a good look. I have had great success in choosing good colors when I use your examples — much better than trying to hold my color fan on the screen. So thank you again for providing such helpful, usable content!”

What People Are Saying About

the Bright Winter course:

Much like a glass of good wine or chocolate, it is best consumed slowly and with relish.


Hello Jorunn. I have been enjoying your masterclass for Bright Winters. Much like a glass of good wine or chocolate, it is best consumed slowly and with relish. There is so much good and helpful information here that I can see myself returning to this content frequently. Thank you for your efforts to make us Bright Winters as informed, comfortable and successful with our season as possible.

Right now I find myself especially grateful for your lessons on chroma and pattern. I have read other descriptions about chroma and pattern. I never really grasped the concept of chroma before your lesson. Your language and your comparative photos really bring it to life. You describe Bright Winter’s best prints with such descriptive language, again supported by really excellent photos. Your words — clear borders, sharp edges — are so well chosen and, again, bring concepts to life.

I know I have more to learn and will enjoy every minute of the process. Thanks again for creating such a cohesive and accessible class.

The lesson on choosing spectacles was worth the cost of the course

Ann Benson

Jorunn provides thought-provoking insights into why I have kept making mistakes as a Reluctant Bright Winter. The lesson on choosing spectacles was worth the cost of the course - if only I hadn’t spent a fortune on tortoiseshell varifocal glasses two months ago - but I won’t make that mistake again. My preference for natural fibres has meant finding intense bright colours harder but Jorunn’s guidance has shown how to work round that. There are so many helpful and informative pointers on so many different aspects of appearance. An excellent course, just wish I had had my colour analysis with Jorunn!

Your advice helped a lot


Your online course is excellent, especially the section related to putting outfits together. I rely very much on neutrals. I found your advice on color proportions very useful. One aspect is very interesting to me. And that is how to combine an image archetype to the color analysis result in the outfits.This is an area which I found sometimes difficult but your advice to pay attention to the proportions of the contrasting colors helped a lot to reconcile these two aspects (the example of the violet blazer and the yellow necklace vs. top).

Many practical examples and lovely videos


This course was very useful with many practical examples and lovely videos. So much information; I am reading all it over and over again. Now it is easier for me to understand bright winter essence in real life with many new ideas. Thank you !

Avoid some expensive mistakes


I highly recommend taking this course if you are a bright winter. I took the course a year ago and then repeated it this last few days and have found it extremely helpful. Had I taken it 8 years ago when I was color draped as a bright winter it would have helped me get focused, make a plan and avoid some expensive mistakes.

So packed with useful information


This course is so packed with useful information on how to integrate the BW palette into your life. It explains a lot of the details that could easily be overlooked for those of us who are low contrast BW’s. Thank you Jorunn, this was a fun adventure 😊

Thank you for making us low contrast ladies feel like we belong

Tina Csomo

I adored this lesson!!!!!! Thank you for making us low contrast ladies feel like we belong!

I wish I had taken it when I was first draped as a bright winter

Kary L Piper

I am so thankful for the thought and creativity that Jorunn has put into this class. I only wish I had taken it 6 years ago when I was first draped as a bright winter. I’d have saved a lot of time and money. Even then knowing my colors I made some expensive mistakes. I now have a much clearer vision of how to do this and look forward to choosing well in the future. Thank you Jorunn for your fun and practical way of presenting the information.

Answered every question I had


You completely nailed it with this course! This answered every question I had. I've been trying to wear bright winter for 3 and a half years now, and I still keep ending up with heavy color combos when I go to actually put outfits together. And I can't get over how helpful it is that you're realistic about lifestyle, shopping, taste, etc. Love love love.

Practical and useful


I do like the course and find it useful because it is so practical.

“The Bright Winter course from Jorunn at Fargeporten is impressive on every level. Presented with Nordic simplicity and real-life practicality, you receive immediate access to creating the elegance of your Bright Winter colours in the way that feels right to you. The apparel images and comparisons are so user-friendly that I had to remind myself to read the text too. The course includes valuable information right down the the last page, including how to combine colours and choose accessories. The collaboration with Courtenay of Studio St. John for the hair colour page (including product images and a script for your colourist!) is a value gem in its own right. The moment you learn your Bright Winter identity, Jorunn guides you step by step, with the visualizations that you need to get shopping decisions right. Enhancing our natural colours has become an attainable goal for all women within our everyday lives.”

Positive, friendly voice

I have been subscribing to your blog ever since your feature on the 12 Blueprints website. You were away for a while, and I was so happy to see a new article from you pop up in my bloglist when you returned. You have such a positive, friendly voice, and your writing is informative and helpful. Your clients are very lucky to have you - maybe someday I will make it to beautiful Norway for a consultation with you.

I love clothes, makeup, all of that, but the current aesthetic in fashion magazines, runways, and celebrity culture is mostly not for me. So I look elsewhere, including your lovely blog.
