While fashion's main claim to fame may be its seasonality—what's "in" and "out" is bound to change alongside the weather—there are some items that stylish women stock their closets with year-round.

We asked our resident styling expert, Banana Republic's Marissa Webb, to share her thoughts on which accessories can take a woman from season to season in style. Keep scrolling to see the six pieces she thinks every woman needs! 

You can never have enough pairs. Most people have their signature shape, but to mix up your look, I think it's worth exploring all different types every season. There's usually something new out there to add to my collection. It's also fun to explore different colour frames, and to shop in both the men's and women's sections.

You simply need to have your favourite shoe of the season.

Handbags are a great way to freshen up your look. I usually carry something neutral during the day, and love to add a pop of colour to my handbag at night.

I usually go softer in the winter and a little bit bolder in the summer, when I have a bit more colour from the sun. Lipstick shades are, of course, very personal depending on skin tone, so a lipstick that looks great on you might not work for me. It's important to try different brands to find the perfect shade for you.

Scarves are a great accessory for all year-round in different weights and fabrications. It's one of those easy pick-up items from your travels. They also make great gifts!

From the perfect Panama hat for warmer days to interesting knit caps for winter to brimmed hats in all their forms—hats are great not only for function, but also for flair.
