Seasonless Wardrobe Additions

The key to creating a recession-proof wardrobe is to try not to think in terms of winter and summer clothes. Instead, invest in seasonless items that ensure you will get the most out of every piece you buy. Fabrics like silk, cotton and lightweight wool or cashmere can be worn virtually all year. Sleeveless or short sleeve pieces can be easily layered under little jackets and cardigans or over thin turtlenecks and long sleeve shirts when the temperature dips. Skirts and dresses can be paired with tights and boots in the winter or bare legs and sandals in the summer.

Here are some year-round pieces worth adding to your wardrobe:

Jackson stretch cotton wide-leg pant $89 – Banana Republic

The new V-neck cardigan $44 – Gap

Sleeveless Shift Dress
Winter: layer a thin long sleeve shirt underneath, or a little cardigan or jacket on top. Tights and pumps complete the look. Summer: bare legs and sandals. Add a skinny belt to change the look.

Cotton Cardigan
The ultimate all-season layering piece, a fitted cotton cardi never goes out of style.

Cotton Knee Length Skirt
This printed skirt can be worn year round with tights or bare legs.

Chiffon Blouse
Layer it in the winter under jackets and sweaters, wear alone when the weather warms.

Stretch Cotton Trouser
Wear year round in dark or light colors.

Ballet Flat
Wear this style on all but the coldest days of the year.

Peep Toe Pump
Whether worn with tights or bare legs, the peep toe pump is an all-season favorite.

This gunmetal-hued bag pairs easily with dark winter colors and bright summery colors.
