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

This medium grey is a great neutral for Light Summer, and a fabulous wardrobe investment.

And hats, scarf and gloves in different versions of periwinkle blue is delightful for a Light Summer.

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. 

I find great pleasure in the challenge of changing the look with the help of well chosen accessories.

Jeans for Light Summer

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 Summer, the defining feature is clear and light.

Jeans are most often blue, and blue is a cool colour, so it's not hard to find clear blue jeans to complement your Light Summer palette.

As always, what makes the outfit perfect for Light Summer, is what you wear with it.

You'll look great pairing jeans with something in one of your star colours, and keeping it clear and light.

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 dusty blue is a nice colour for all three summers. But on its own, this jumpsuit lacks a little something. 

Let's try adding a couple of accessories.

Light Summer needs delicate, cool colours and flowy patterns.

A light scarf with watercolour effect pattern worn loosely, and some lovely pink flower earrings in suede (yes, leather!).

Might work equally well for True Summer, actually.
