Slogan tees: political fashion statement?

IMG_8886IMG_8881This season it seems like anybody that is anyone is making a statement with their chest – and I’m not referring to their breast size. Forget actually having to speak to make any sort of statement – political or otherwise – instead people are doing it through their clothes. What better way to have an opinion or to stick your middle finger up? Slogan tees have been absolutely dominating over the last few months and it doesn’t look like they plan on going anywhere. ‘Females are the future‘  and ‘feminist‘ are just a few of the many statements being worn on the street and the catwalk. I’m going to be honest, I am ALL for slogan tees. If you follow me on Instagram this won’t come as a surprise. My collection I can confirm- is endless.
IMG_8883IMG_8882Why have tshirts with words and phrases on become so prominent within fashion? I can’t speak for everybody else, but I know i personally love to make a statement in terms of fashion choices and if what I’m wearing conveys a really strong message then I love it all the more. As women who throughout centuries have fought to have an opinion and be able to express themselves (soz to get all serious) I think it’s important we embrace being able to have a voice – or for that matter a body that can act as a live billboard. Granted my 1972 tee is simply because I like the look of it, but any slogan tee that serves as a political message I undoubtedly have in my wardrobe and will be wearing over my social channels.
