Historical Adaptations for The Spring Type

Once you've had your Seasonal Color Analysis and learned your Seasonal Type, the next step is to discover your personal expression of your Seasonal Style.

Suzanne Caygill offered some assistance by identifying fashions from certain historical periods that can inform the style for each Season.

The lines and rhythms of design in the periods and styles below seem to complement the Spring type.

These are just some of the possible modern adaptations for each period as listed in her book, Color The Essence of You.

Louis XV

Louis XVI

French Provincial

Country English

Early American


Pennsylvania Dutch


You may find affinity with one (or several) of these historic fashion periods which may help you as you develop your own personal Spring Style.

One more post to come in this series, so stay tuned my Autumn friends, you will not be forgotten!
