We’ve already been fortunate enough to pick Banana Republic Creative Director (and all-around style wizard) Marissa Webb’s brain about the items we need in our closet, and learned her incredibly wise tips for jeans shopping. But this week’s edition of “Ask A Stylist” might just trump them both.
With experience in just about every facet of fashion and retail, Webb is a bona fide expert when it comes to styling. So, naturally, we had to get her thoughts on the simple styling tricks every woman can incorporate into her life—the ones that are not only easy to pull off, but also incredibly effective.
