In winter, you can dip into the darker side of your palette.

For example, you may invest in a dark blue coat, and find a hat and scarf in a hazy version of teal.

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!

Dark navy is a great alternative to black for a True Summer. 

And by changing the accessories you wear with it, you have countless different outfits from the same dress, for many years.

Jeans for True Summer

For True Summer, the defining feature is hazy coolness. That's what we're after.

As I always say, the most important thing when you're out shopping is to compare. Compare, compare, compare. Compare the jeans with another pair in the shop. And another.

You're looking for jeans that have cool clear blue colour, to complement your True Summer palette.

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

What makes the outfit perfect for True Summer, is what you wear with it. You'll look great pairing jeans with something in one of your star colours, perhaps using analogous colours.

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.

True Summer rocks outfits that are close to monochrome. I find this dusty blue to dark blue to turquoise combination quite intriguing.

A light scarf worn loosely and dark blue earrings and bangle finish off the ensemble very elegantly.
