The 9 Items EVERY Woman Needs In Her Closet

You may have heard the big news at Who What Wear this week: Banana Republic creative director (and designer of her own eponymous label) Marissa Webb is the new expert voice for our Ask A Stylist column! Here's her big debut—we hope you like it as much as we do.

This week, we asked Webb to reveal which items she thinks every stylish woman should have in her closet. She came up with nine essentials, and shared the reasoning behind each one.

Keep scrolling to find out what she had to say, and to shop finds for every budget! 

alice + olivia Long Tuxedo Blazer ($396)

It's just perfect!

Boden Cashmere Crew Neck Sweater in Caramel & Ivory Stripe ($198)

They're great for travelling, freezing planes, breezy nights sitting on the beach, and in front of a fireplace. They're a year-round necessity!

Cambridge Satchel Push Lock Bag ($120)

Even if you're not a big colour wearer, when you find a colour you do like, stock up on it.

Frame Denim Inez Mid-Rise Straight-Leg Jeans ($240)

Every woman needs jeans of all shapes and sizes, to fit your mood.

COS Cut-Out Circle Earrings ($19)

Every woman should have a lucky or sentimental piece of jewellery for crappy days when you need an inspirational kick in the arse.

Banana Republic Ninah Pump ($130)

You need a good pair of comfortable, classic pumps that you can wear with anything.  

Aquazzura Christy Lace-Up Flats ($675)

We all need shoes we can run around in while still looking put together. Comfy, but  chic.


Acne Studios Addle Fluid Button-Front Blouse ($350)

Versatile, classic, necessary.
