One of the most important closet staples is a basic T-shirt. Regardless of whether you’re unwinding in your most loved sweats or out on the town in a pair of tailored pants, the T-shirt always conveys an easygoing cool vibe to whatever outfit you have on.
While the T-shirt style is not really anything new, the fashion crowd always tries to update it. 2016/2017 we saw them demonstrate that this T-shirt style is authoritatively the most adaptable thing in your closet especially when you have fun with it – eg. graphic tees. Every brand, from fast fashion to designers jumped on board with the trend and ladies are grabbing them up quickly to wear tees tucked into their skirts and high-waisted pants or layered over a dress (also not new information).
What I find exciting is how the simple, straightforward T-shirt evolved into a fashion statement — an opportunity to broadcaster politics, a weapon to help make a statement without saying a word or simply a way to showcase your identity, it is no longer just a t-shirt and it is beyond just being street style now. The Slogan t-shirt trend has been a centerpiece in several runway shows, much like the Dior Spring 2017 show where fashion designer Maria Grazia Chiuri brought powerful statements such as “We Should All Be Feminists” to the show or with Haider Ackermann showing versions that read “Be Your Own Hero” and “Silent Soldier” – these designers used their platform for greater good and I am here for it.
Like a tattoo, the slogan T-shirt has become a weapon, a weapon for the fashion crowd. With 2017 being the year to speak your mind, this t-shirt trend is spot on – it easy to wear, easy to style and easiest way to get your message across.
