My Investment Piece: Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci Rottweiler T-shirt for men, $265 (barneys.com for stores).

Why I've Gotta Have It: The shirt is so versatile and yet so unique — any way you wear it, it makes a statement.

Big Night Look: With heels and a leather-trimmed tuxedo jacket, the jeans-and-T-shirt look is ready for a concert or cocktails.

Tips: Tuck the front of the shirt in and leave the back out to minimize bulk.

Wear only simple charm necklaces that won't distract from the shirt's print.

Jacket, price upon request, Hermès; hermes.com for stores. Hat, $1,720, Lanvin; bergdorfgoodman.com. Acne jeans, Giuseppe Zanotti Design. Shoes & all jewelry, Laceppe's own.
