Light Spring in winter

A winter coat in a neutral colour is a good investment.

Light Springs sometimes have a hard time finding winter clothing in their colours, but it is not impossible.

This light beige is a great neutral for Light Spring, and a fabulous wardrobe investment.

And why not seek out some peach or warm coral hats and gloves?.

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 in a neutral colour is a good investment for a sustainable wardrobe, and bonus points for not choosing black.

This light beige coloured shift dress would be very nice as a staple part of a Light Spring party capsule wardrobe, along with a pair of light grey/beige timeless pumps.

By combining it with different accessories you can use the same dress for many years!

Jeans for Light Spring

If you are like most women, you have a pair of jeans in your wardrobe.
At least one. 
One nice pair of jeans, that you can use with a dressed-up top and heels, perhaps? 
And then the trusty old pair that has been laundered to a state of perfect fit and softness, for a relaxed week-end. Hard to get rid of, right? And why should you? A great pair of jeans just gets better with age and wear. 

Did you know that around 7500 litres of water are used to make one pair of jeans? And jeans that are factory bleached and torn have been subjected to even more chemical treatment and artificial wear.

So wearing out the jeans yourself, during years and years of use, is the best choice for the environment.

For Light Spring, the defining feature is juicy but light.

You're looking for jeans that are sunkissed and casual, and light, to complement your Light Spring palette.

Jeans are most often blue, and blue is a cool colour, so what you will look for is the juiciest and clearest of the jeans, to complement your Light Spring palette. As always, what makes the outfit perfect for Light Spring, is what you wear with it. You'll look great pairing jeans with something in one of your star colours, and keeping it light and playful.

Light Spring 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.

The warm sand colour is a nice neutral for all three springs. But on its own, it lacks a little something. 

Let's try adding a couple of accessories.

Light Spring needs delicate, warm colours and a little playfulness.

Hair clips can be fun accessories, and combined with some elegant earrings it keeps the look grown-up.

All three springs benefit from energy and movement, so some playful dangly earrings are never wrong.
