Sewing for a Spring Palette and Playful Personality

We have previously looked at how certain colours appeal to different personalities more than others, and choosing the right colour can affect your mood in our blog “Colour and You”. We have looked at how each colour can have a different affect on how we feel, now we are going to look at which tones fit with each personality type and how you can dress to feel like the best version of yourself based on this theory. The best colours to get that ‘glow’. 

The chances are you will look at a colour palette and instantly be drawn to it as it is in harmony with your personality. If not, there are various quizzes you can take online or in “The Little Book of Colour” by Karen Haller. Many people have more than one personality type, with one being more dominant.


While each colour palette refers to a particular season, within each palette you will find three different ‘sub-palettes’ that will work throughout the year. While ‘Light’ and ‘True’ spring feature the colours most commonly associated with this season, the darker shades of the ‘Bright Spring’ palette are commonly seen in many autumn and winter fabrics.

The Playful Personality

The Spring or Playful Colour Palette features colours that are warm, bright, clear and delicate. The Spring or Playful personality is outgoing and spontaneous, with the warm, lively energy of spring reflected in their personality. These colours are cheerful and high spirited, just like the spring personality.

The Spring Colours

The key features of these colours are their yellow base which gives the warmth, and they do not have any black which gives the clarity. They have a happy and lively bounce which we associate with spring.
