The power of the t-shirt is probably the most underestimated item in one’s wardrobe. These simple luxuries can easily take you from day to night, or casual to formal. Being a college student, I live in t-shirts and find a high quality piece to be worth the investment. One t-shirt can translate to several appealing outfits. For instance – to class: pair with cotton leggings, for happy hour: pair with leather leggings, for a night out: tuck into a bandage skirt with pumps, to a bar: just add jean leggings and booties, to the office: layered underneath a blazer, hanging out with friends: loosely paired with denim shorts, the possibilities are endless. Here are my must-have t-shirts of the moment.From Top Left: UNIF fancy bones tee, $68, Karmaloop. / Diesel t-wings t-shirt, $75, SSENSE. / Tie Dye tunic, $18, Mikkat Market. / Marni short sleeve leather top, $606, The OutNet. / Obey the native triangle slub domain tee in burnt sienna, $34, Karmaloop. / Givenchy, jungle t-shirt, $405, SSENSE. / Ashish sequined silk t-shirt, $245, The OutNet. / Really a mermaid lennon sweater, $198, WildFox Couture / Alexander McQueen bead embellished cotton jersey t-shirt, $262, The OutNet.

Here’s my pick for this week’s top five Possessions and Obsessions. TheLouboutin’s may be a little out of reach, but there’s some special holidays coming up in my life (dare to dream). That golden nail polish is sort of a now or never thing, being that fall is rapidly approaching; but it certainly is the best hue of yellow notresembling fungus that I’ve ever seen. As you can tell by my possessions, I’m veryfall focused with my purchases of late. I can’t wait to get back to my leggings, and definitely get the best of both worlds with these leather-front-cotton-backed stems. Finally, if you have an at times, shiny face like mine – you NEED the oil absorbing mattifier. Trust me.

Rose gold is very applicable to the whole “Chic Street” image I’m trying to portray. It adds a reviving twist to standard yellow gold while remaining exuberantly feminine. These structured angles and boxy corners boast an edgy style.
