One to Five: French Connection Rainbow Stripe Oversize Tee

Each week, we’ll pick one item we’re coveting and style five looks for different occassions a gal about town might have.  This week’s item is the French Connection Rainbow Stripe Oversize Tee Shirt, a staple that won’t break the bank.  At just $58, this new take on the traditional navy and white striped tee we’re all accustomed to wearing in the Summer is the perfect foundation piece to dress up or down when the weather gets scorching.

Night Out on the Town: Who says Mondays have to be dull? For a night on the town with the girls, we pair our rainbow striped tee with Summer ready Citizens of Humanity Manic mid-rise stretch-denim shorts. To dress up the look, we take our style to new heights in the sexy Emilio Pucci Lace-up suede thigh-high boots.  Cover up with the rocker chic Vince Vintage-leather jacket and accessorize with and Alexander McQueen Gold Clutch, Alexander McQueen Tan Leather Double Wrap Bracelet and Alexander McQueen Gold Iris And Skull Bangle.

Date Night: Nothing is sexier than a short leather skirt paired with a soft tee for a date night.  For a date night in the Meatpacking District, the butterscotch Kelly Bergin Leather mini skirt will have your date weak in the knees.  Wear a statement necklace like the Dannijo Carlotta silver-plated Swarovski crystal necklace to draw some attention to the face.  The  Tom Binns Sterling silver-plated Swarovski crystal safety pin earrings are the perfect compliment to add more glitz to the look.   Instead of stilettos or pumps, opt for the Acne Raya peep-toe linen ankle boots and carry your cash, credit cards and phone in the super chic Lanvin Happy Pop Clutch.

Happy Hour: We love Wednesday happy hours, especially relaxing on a rooftop somewhere in midtown.  Celebratory hump day drinks with the girls calls for denim, Dsquared2 fade detail jeans to be exact.  We love the extremely distressed look of these jeans, paired with brown Belstaff Barkmaster leather boots.  Protect your peepers with the Cream Plastic Keyhole Aviator Sunglasses By Squint Topshop and accessorize with Bijoux Heart Cristal de Corail 24-karat gold-plated earrings and an Antik Batik Bongo embellished leather shoulder bag.

Work Wear: Looking professional is a cinch come Thursday when you pair your striped tee with French Connection Classic Wide Leg Trousers and a crisp white Smythe Linen blazer.  Finish off the polished look with Miu Miu Bow-embellished patent-leather pumps and Bijoux Heart Deco Miel 24-karat gold-plated Swarovski crystal earrings. Don’t forget your Macbook pro and other work essentials with the Proenza Schouler PS1 Extra Large Leather.  Lastly, we love the brainy look and give our stamp of approval on the Retrosun Vintage Christian Lacroix optical glasses.

Casual Friday: TGIF! It’s finally Friday and we love taking advantage of the relaxed dress code at the office.  Keep it cool and still professional with these Isabel Marant Jerome zipped cotton and linen-blend pants.  We rarely use our blackberry to tell time and instead use a grown-up watch.  We are coveting the Juicy Couture Queen Couture Rose Gold Watch, with its bold face and metallic stripes.  Add some color to the ensemble with Versace’s Studded cutout leather wedges. Accessorize with a yellow Marc by Marc Jacobs – D2 Classic Q Huge Hillier Hobo, an affordable pearl necklace from Banana Republic and the Juicy Couture – Wanderlust Thread Wrapped Hoops.  Too cool for school?  Finish off your casual Friday look with the Selima Optique Nora cat-eye frame optical glasses.
