With just four simple steps and some savvy shopping tips, you will be well on your way to choosing the perfect dress that will take you effortlessly through all the seasons, come rain or shine.
It may come as a surprise to discover that by following just a few golden rules you will be on route to a versatile and easy to wear wardrobe. Effortless. Stress free. Stylish. With one obvious added bonus (hint: your bank balance will thank you for!)
The colour should be easy to wear and easy to mix and match with other items in your wardrobe. It is certainly worth thinking about what colour your winter jacket is. When choosing a colour, it is best to think about neutral palettes; black, grey and blue are colours that will work in all the seasons and are easy to combine with other colours. Yellow however might be a little trickier to conquer whilst on the quest for easier wardrobe combinations.
A great option for a multi versatile dress is a midi style. That means. below the knee, around calf length. This length is ideal for all seasons. In the summer, brave it and go bare (and keep your fingers crossed for a glorious English summer). In the Autumn Winter add tights or knee high chunky socks.

When choosing a dress to suit ALL the seasons, this can be a daunting idea. But don’t stress. Although the British weather can be a little unpredictable, to say the least, it is possible when selecting the perfect dress to find a fabric that suits all weathers…and don’t forget layers are always an option! It is better to have lots of thinner layers, so you can peel them on and off as needed. Good quality fabrics are designed to keep you cool in the hot weather and warm in the cold chilly winters.
The BEST style for all seasons is one that is versatile and easy to add layers to. So, that being said, it would have to be a strappy dress. A strappy dress will take you effortlessly through all the seasons and all you have to do is add a little t-shirt or a thin knit or perhaps a fitted polo-neck in the depths of winter, for a chic and easy look.
