Flamingo Tee / 3 Ways

Generally my wardrobe strategy is to select statement pieces that are versatile enough to work with my basics and can be dressed-up or down depending on my day.  Such is the case with this t-shirt.  The basic grey with pink sequins is a combo that's fun and easy to play with.

I feel like flamingos are having a moment.  I mean what's not to like?  They are pink and have feathers.  Put them on a comfy tee and add sequins?  Done.  I also feel like the statement t-shirt is an important trend for Spring.  This is great news because t-shirts are super comfy and are versatile when it comes to creating looks.

Here the flamingo tee goes classic when paired back to basic denim and a trusty black blazer. The accessories stay neutral with a black quilted bag, black kitten heels and sunglasses.  The colorful additions come from pink rhinestone studs and a festive flamingo scarf.  The scarf is definitely overkill but can't be missed for $15...maybe tie it on your handbag?  The finishing touch is my favorite Tom Ford lipstick in Flamingo.

Flamingo Elegant
Pink feathers and sequins definitely scream fun, feminine and flirty.  While this outfit is over-the-top, it's fun to see how an ultra-feminine lady may style this t-shirt.  For starters, the full skirt is the skirt silhouette for Spring.  (Easy piece to add to your wardrobe now and transition into Spring btw.)  Add a belt for extra waist definition to create a figure-flattering feminine silhouette.  While I am sure there are more affordable pink pumps out there, you have to see these Rachel Roy pumps in Flamingo leather.  With this much going on it's important to keep the accessories somewhat neutral including a giant white bag and updated cateye sunglasses.  I can't help adding a rhinestone necklace (it is my Achilles heel) and super fun neon studs.

Side note: If you have a passion for flamingos, this iPhone case is for you and every glamorous lady needs a pair of Tweezermans in their arsenal.  Why not add the Mini Slant in Flamingo pink?

Flamingo Casual

The first two looks are geared towards fashion risk-takers but let's be real about how most people wear a t-shirt.  Casual.  Until the weather warms up, our flamingo tee makes your jeans feel fun and like spring may just be right around the corner.  Again, there are more affordable pink flats out there but the adorable Rachel Roy pump also comes in a flat in the same Flamingo color.  Two major accessory trends this season are included here: the baseball cap and bucket bag.  Both inexpensive ways to update your current look.  The finishing touches are a simple scarf and Orly nailpolish in Fabulous Flamingo.

I will acknowledge a lot of this styling is a little much but you get the idea.  The price tag of this tee is definitely on the high side but you're at least getting something versatile and upbeat.  This time of year, these are the pieces you should add to your wardrobe because they are wear now and a fun nod to Spring.
