Slogan Tee Still Strong For Summer
March 19, 2018
Ah, the slogan tee. Triumphing in the 80s with politically charged tees from the likes of Katherine Hamnett and Vivienne Westwood, and illustrated icons from artists like Keith Haring, the slogan tee finds a new stage today. And even after a few seasons in the spotlight, the trend is bigger than ever.
The Slogan Tee
Here are a few of our favourite ways to style these statement making staples.
Sports Tees For The Evening
Sports luxe is another trend that is still going strong, and it's the perfect inspiration when styling a retro branded tee. Up your t-shirt's style game by pairing it with elevated pieces. Think a Nike Swoosh t-shirt tucked into a pair of suit trousers, a 90s Ellesse top with a bodycon pencil skirt, or a cropped branded tshirt layered underneath a cami dress. Some great jewellery and even one of our gold Belgravia or Westminster watches will give this look a luxe finishing touch.
I'm With The Band
Band tees bring all sorts of 90s nostalgia, especially if you punctuate them with the grungy, boyish style that prevailed during the later era. Leather is a perfect pairing for this look, whether you wear your tee under a leather jacket or tucked into a pair of tailored leather trousers. Mix it up with other rugged staples, from distressed denim to khaki.
Isn't It Ironic
There's always room for irony and fun in fashion, and a slogan tshirt is a great way to bring some energy to your look. Vetements certainly did it with their DHL branded tee in 2016, as did Moschino with their McDonald's range, and Anya Hindmarch with a whole host of high street logos from Boots to Kellogg's. Whether you buy the real deal or find an interpretation on the high street, wear these revered tees with sophisticated, muted pieces to keep the look high style. Men and women can team them with suit trousers or leather trousers for instant elevation.
All Over Novelty
Slogans haven't just been reserved for t-shirts, and you can go all out with a whole head to toe look of slogan pieces. Tuck your tee into a leather skirt and carry an envelope clutch covered in patches, or wear it with culottes and a pair of slogan shoes. Men can look to bags and hats with slogans to work into their daywear.
Feminist, animal activist or political trailblazer, the catwalk has pioneered the political tees trend, pushing agendas from all corners of the spectrum. Pick your cause and give yours the standout stage it deserves, wear it under a blazer with some tailored trousers or keep it casual with a plain pair of jeans. Just make sure you have conviction in the message you're wearing.
