Making your dress work all year round

Saturday, June 16, 2012


A good year-round dress is an absolute lifesaver when you’re in need of a quick-fix look and don’t have hours to ponder over what to wear. If you’re thinking of clearing out some of your clothing clutter and creating a ‘capsule wardrobe’ - where you have several items that can combine to create a host of different looks – then a versatile dress is a great place to start.
For busy, modern working ladies, a dress we can wear at any time throughout the year can be a fantastic aid for packing light on holiday, thinning out our wardrobes and freeing up our clothes budget for some fabulous accessories.
So, how do you take a dress from one season to the next? First, get the right type of dress. If you want a dress that’s suitable for multiple situations – whether for the office or for a relaxed day out – then it might be best to stick to neutral colours like navy, brown, cream or black, as these will work well with a number of other shades. It’s also a good idea to opt for a sleeveless dress – which will be explained shortly.
Once you’ve picked your perfect dress, work on combinations for your lifestyle. For work during spring and summer, a sleeveless dress may work fine on its own, with just the addition of strappy heels and a thick bangle. Alternatively, for a dressed-down, relaxed look, swap the heels for flip-flops or ballet pumps.
On occasion, autumn can still be warm and sunny, so you’ll simply need to add a light cardigan to give your shoulders extra warmth. In case of unpredictable showers, abandon the flip-flops in favor of ankle-length Clark boots - leggings or tights optional.
Come winter, boots will no doubt be essential (particularly if there’s snow!) so team your dress with thick black tights, and wear it over a preppy shirt for work. Add an extra layer in the form of a chunky cable knit cardigan or a lined blazer on especially chilly days.
As you can see, it’s easy to create a whole host of different looks using just a simple sleeveless dress as a base – and once you’ve started, you’ll love how much more neat and organised your new capsule wardrobe looks.
