It might still be winter outside, but refreshing colours can make us dream of spring as the shops fill up with garments for warmer days, hinting that a new season is on the horizon. Hues of violet and blue were recently named colours of the year – and sure enough, warm violet and calming blue shades are perfectly on-trend this season. Let colourful transitional attire carry you softly from the greyest of winter towards the joyful, lighter spirit of spring.

Not many garments can compete with an easy-to-throw-on cardigan between seasons. Add some wool, lilac and green too, and it makes for the perfect transition piece that is both on-trend and suitable for the bitterly cold late winter, as well as the early spring.

Garments truly do have the power to shift your mood. Wearing lilac from head to toe, like this outfit from Danish Stine Goya, you’ll potentially make the people you encounter smile, also. The over-sized silhouette of the soft cotton candy corduroy trousers adds some coolness to the cuteness of the outfit, too.

If wearing a full-on colour palette is not your thing, tiny touches do a great job, too. Playful hair claws are still fashionable after a few seasons in the spotlight, and this one from the Danish jewellery and accessories brand Maanesten is bedazzled with stones to make any bad hair day a glamorous one.
