With the slogan t-shirt still as popular as ever, one new trend for AW17 is positivity!
T-Shirts with empowering and motivational slogans, are all over the place right now. Its time to refresh your wardrobe and get with this seasons hottest trend!
These days it seems, social media is no longer the best place to express your emotions – your body now is! Wear it on a t-shirt and tell the world how you are feeling. Slogans work on so many different levels; they’re almost subliminal. They’re also a way you aligning yourself to a particular cause. Wearing one is like branding yourself!
We saw all the catwalks full of tongue in cheek and positive slogans, and have seen celebrities all over the globe wearing their feelings on a t-shirt – many “political” and directed at the new USA president, Donald Trump! And even here in the UK, during the last election, loads of slogan tees and sweaters for Jeremy Corbyn.
So the simple rule for AW17 is , if you have got something to get off your chest? Then this is the year to do it literally, and in style!
Whether for self-expression, humor, empowerment or purely aesthetic purposes, subtle or overt, the slogan tee is making a big statement this season.
Most fashionistas pinpoint the current slogan tee trend to have started with Maria Grazia Chiuri sending a t-shirt down the runway at Dior reading “We should all be feminists“. However the slogan top has been a way of self-expression, for several years! Going right back to Katharine Hamnett in the 80s with bold, block lettered slogans like “Choose Life” and “Worldwide nuclear ban now” and Henry Holland of House of Holland, whose “Fashion Groupies” t-shirts, which gave loud, bright and cleverly rhymed nods to the current fashion set, including “What a corker Karen Walker” and “I’ll show you who’s boss Kate Moss” were the must-have item of 2006.
“I wanted to put a really large message on t-shirts that could be read from 20 or 30ft away,”
Hamnett told The Guardian in 2009.
Part of the slogan tee’s appeal is down to the fact its super versatile, and an easy piece to incorporate into any wardrobe.
As the trend began with Dior, it’s also set the tone for how to wear it right now; midi skirts in full shapes, translucent fabrics, in pretty prints or with glittering embellishment, paired with pumps and maybe a blazer.
Other options are to team it up with some vintage denim or a even masculine style suit, or channel your inner rock chick with some skinny leather pants.
A pairing we’re not seeing much with statement tees though is trainers, perhaps as this is less of a casual look and more the “fashion” take on the t-shirt – but there’s still plenty of footwear freedom with the full spectrum of heels, loafers and ballet flats making an appearance front row with slogan tops at fashion weeks around the globe.
Now all you need to do is decide what it is you want to say.
So what are you waiting for?
Its not just tees either – you can wear a slogan sweater, even a slogan beanie this winter.

Katie Price was pictured wearing our Liquor N Poker Bomber Jacket
Miss Katie Price, looked casual wearing our liquor n poker camo print bomber jacket as she arrived earlier today, at the ITV studios in London to celebrate Loose Women’s 2,500th anniversary.
Katie is clearly a 90s gal at heart as she has been seen recently wearing a whole array of the back in fashion 90s favourite bombers. Infact she isnt the only celebrity embracing their inner 90s chic, with even Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin sporting the 90s classic!
We can see why – the bomber jacket is lightweight yet warm (and boy do we need heat right now, snow at the end of April….WTF?!) And the jackets have been given a 2016 update with some cool and quirky prints and badges. They go with anything and are super comfy.
The yummy mummy, paired her liquor n poker bomber jacket with some white shredded joggers and finished the look off with some grey glittery trainers.
Kendall Jenner wears Glitter Hair Roots at Coachella
Kendall Jenner was snapped at Coachella music festival this weekend. She showcased her 5ft10 model figure in a white lacy boho style maxi-dress, really embracing the festival vibes. Aside from the music festival, Kendall also became a DJ for the day, behind the decks of the invite-only 1OAK and Up & Down pool party!
The 20-year-old reality princess, who relies on stylist Monica Rose, accessorised her eyelet frock with circle shades, brown gladiator sandals, and an ornate necklace.
She then rocked the same raver-bun hairstyle César DeLeön Ramirêz gave her half-sister Khloé Kardashian on the March 30 episode of FYI’s Kocktails With Khloé, but added her own unique touch to it, with glitter hair roots.
Glitter hair roots are all the rage right now, we wrote about this last year when celebs like Miley Cyrus were rocking the look. And now it seems to be a trend moving into 2016 too! We love it, a little bit of glitter never hurt anybody! And for festivals the look is great.
Luckily for you gals we have loads of different colours to chose from by London label, Natural Products – silver like Kendall or something more whacky like pink or blue, or mix em up?
We are going back to droll over the sunshine at Coachella (unfortunately only in pics)
