20 seasonless dresses you can wear all year round

Knowing what to wear at the moment is quite the tall order. One day, we’re basking in Balearic sunshine, and the next we’re wondering how to dress for the practically Amazonian thunderstorms. It may be August, but leaving the house dressed for summer right now is a risk we’re just not willing to take. 

Enter seasonless dresses, AKA dresses that can be worn at any temperature during all times of year. They’re not too short, not too heavy (you can always layer knits or outwear over lighter dresses, but you can’t cool down a thick-knit dress for summer), and will slot in perfectly with each season’s aesthetic.

Not only will this more conscious way of dressing save you some precious pennies, but it’ll increase cost-per-wear of each item and, in turn, earn you some sustainability points. What could be better?

When it’s hot out, team these timeless dresses with your comfiest sandals, a summery straw bag and floppy hat, and when the temperature drops, layer under a cosy jumper and throw on a pair of chunky boots. 

Here’s our pick of the best seasonless dresses to add to your wardrobe now, and wear forevermore come rain or shine…
