Fashion Fix: Frolicious Tee

In 1971 Darine Stern became the first African-American woman to grace the cover of Playboy magazine solo... and it was this image that captivated me on a t-shirt I found in Urban Outfitters this past weekend. I must admit that it was the fro that first grabbed my attention and how could it not? I love that a brown skinned, frolicious beauty was showcasing the sex appeal of black women and natural hair!

Buying the shirt was an obvious thing, but now I'm faced with finding a way to add a creative twist. I might make it a tank... or even cut the collar and allow it to have a comfy fit. Does anyone have suggestions on how to make this shirt pop? I can't wait to rock it... especially with a similar blown out fro.

I love the shirt! Thanks for giving me an excuse to go back to UO :)

I love cutting the collar off for an off-the-shoulder look. I've also made a t-shirt into a halter using safety pins, similar to this tutorial: http://www.lovemaegan.com/2010/06/silk-scarf-safety-pin-tank-top-diy.html

I've been butchering the collars of shirts for a while now. I was thinking of doing the same to this one but wasn't sure if they could be a more unique style out there. So you know, I found this in the men's clearance section! Only $9.99.
