Red Dress: H&M (collection Spring 2014)
Currently, I am living in Washington DC and my life is pretty busy, it does not allow me to go shopping quite often (I hope that situation changes in the near future). Therefore I suggest you to keep in your closet and/or baggage (if you are a traveler) a pair of the so-called seasonal dresses.
When I use the term "all-seasonal" I have in mind a short, single color dress or a classic dress whose design is a sophisticated pattern, an example of this last one would be a Jacquard-weave dress. Another important characteristic to take into account is the fabric; hence it should be made of a light and thin textile, such as silk, Georgette, Voile, Chiffon, etc which allows you to use it in warmer seasons. These are the basic tips that you will need to make the perfect choice.

Once you have selected the right dress, you will need accessories to help your outfit make it all-seasonal:
For fall/winter you will want to be warm. To get this goal you will have to make your dress look warmer as well. For this, you will need a pair of dark and thick tights (this color is always a win because it matches with everything), a pair of boots and a cardigan. Do not forget a purse whose color match with the color of the dress or boots. I would recommend a purse in a dark color like the tights.

For summer/spring, forget tights and warm/dark cardigans and focus on a nice  pair of sandals and a small purse or wallet bag, the color of these accessories should be the lightest possible. Tips: do not forget sunglasses, it is a summer/spring indispensable fashion accessory. Also, you will probably need to use cardigan for those rainy spring/summer days, then I suggest you to pick one in pastel or white color.
