We love how natural and airy this Guinivere Tunic ($69 at looks and how easily it can be dressed up!

Uptown Sleek: Pair this tunic with a big large or bright ring and some white sandals, suggests Tracy Cyprow, a New York City-based stylist. Or, a wide white, cotton headband gives off a feeling of being on the French Riviera, and "some large silver hoops to add to that look a la Jackie O," she says. Sharon Haver, founder of, suggests pairing it with a fabulous open shoe that respects the sporty-ness of the tunic. "To do that, you usually need a stacked heel, platform or a wood wedge -- something that has a little more earth and naturalness to it."

What you'll need:
• Large bright-colored or gold ring
• Wide white cotton headband
• Silver hoops
• White sandals or stacked heel, platform or wedge

Downtown Chic: Play up the ethnic look of this tunic with tons and tons of gold or silver chains, or one large pendant with some stones in it, Haver says. "Skinny white pants would be cute, just a narrow, above-the-ankle polished cotton or white denim pant, but show a little ankle skin, and make sure the pant is skinny and not capris," Haver adds. Then try a metallic flat sandal, but nothing glaring. If you're an earring kind of gal, add some nice gold hoops, and maybe a big ring.

What you'll need:
• Gold and/or silver chain necklace, and/or one large stone pendant necklace
• Skinny white pants
• Metallic flat sandal
• Chunky ring
• Gold hoop earrings
