Spring is now less than a week away—March 20 is officially the first day!—which, this year, is exciting enough to make us want to dance a jig down the middle of the street. But here's the thing: What are we supposed to wear?! After so many months enveloped in down coats, wool hats, and an impenetrable layer of scarves, the propsect of showing some skin is a bit daunting.
To help ease our anxiety over our spring wardrobe, we enlisted Banana Republic's Marissa Webb to share which items she thinks we should definitely add to our closets this season. Refreshingly, her list is short and sweet—Webb recommends four must-have items that you need to add to your wardrobe this spring.

Marissa Webb Exclusive Kayla Linen Denim Anorak ($625)
I love adding tunics to my collection for spring. There are so many different options for styling them. If they’re long enough, I can wear them as a dress, or I can also wear them over pants and skirts.
I am currently looking for more maxi skirts to add to my spring closet. They’re so easy and you don’t have to think too hard about it. You can toss on a pair of sandals or dress them up with a pair of heels. You can style them with a T-shirt for a more casual look, or dress them up with a button-front shirt, or pair them with a chunky cosy sweater. The styling options are endless.

I’m always looking for the perfect nude and coral nail polishes for spring. Currently, I’m also into dark, matte navy nails. It’s always fun to find that new, interesting colour for each season.
