True Autumn in winter

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

This rusty brown is a great neutral for True Autumn, and a fabulous wardrobe investment.

Then you can combine it with all kinds of different hats and gloves in your lovely colours, for variation.

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 chocolate brown is a great neutral for True Autumn, and will look good with all the star 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 True Autumn

For True Autumn, the defining feature is spicy warm. Jeans in a warm grey tone is better than blue jeans for True Autumn. 

You're looking for jeans that have spicy warm quality, to complement your True Autumn palette.

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

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

True 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.

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.

Lovely rich warm autumn orange earrings and bangle would be great for True Autumn.

  • have taken to dying old black jeans in purple/burgundy to make them more autumny, and so that they go better with my other clothes. I hadn’t realised what a difference it makes – and have even dyed some of my blue ones too. I try to match them to my shirts in tone, but find that purple is closer to the jeans spirit than brown. but that may just be psychological and as we see more copper and brown coloured jeans, that will feel better too.
    PS loved that brown summer dress!
