Dark Autumn in winter

A statement coat in a signature colour is a great way to brighten those dreary winter days.

And a spicy orange colour like this one is perfect for Dark Autumn.

Pair it with a variety of accessories in your neutral colours and you're set for many, many winters in the same coat.

Two ways of styling one dress

It's a fun challenge to change the look with the help of accessories! And when you wear the colours that you are, they remember YOU, not what dress you wore!

A simple dress and some good pumps in one of your best neutrals is a great investment.

Deep espresso brown is a great neutral for Dark Autumn, and will look good with all the spicy colours of your palette.

By using different accessories, you can change the look of the outfit totally, and wear the same dress many times on a holiday season, and enjoy the same dress for many years.

Jeans for Dark Autumn

Dark Autumn's defining feature is dark and spicy. You're looking for jeans that have dark spicy quality.

Jeans are most often blue, and blue is a cool colour, so it's actually a little hard to find spicy dark jeans to complement your Dark Autumn palette.

So why not go for something completely different than blue? 

And of course, what makes the outfit perfect for Dark Autumn, is what you wear with it.

Dark Autumn in summer

Accessories for warm summer days

Adding some sophistication to an outfit is essential. 
I have one word for you. And that's two words: Always accessorise. 
Nordic Simplicity is simple. But not boring. 

And since outfits for warm summer days tend to be quite minimal, choosing a few essential accessories (and actually remembering to use them) is key.

Dark brown is a nice neutral for all three autumns. 

The dress is lovely, but on its own it lacks a certain something. 

Let's try adding a couple of accessories.

By adding interesting accessories we elevate simplicity into sophistication.

The square wood beaded necklace adds a minimalist yet textured autumn feel, and a rustic leather belt is never wrong for Dark Autumn.
