Talking Tees


Sorry I missed your call… I was busy writing about slogan tees. It is important to connect with slogan tees. It is important to connect with the symbolism laced in an otherwise basic garment. Black, red, vinyl, embroidery, white, blue, badge, foil – your tee, your voice.

Girls are primarily leading the trend, sporting the chill feel of a plain tee as an elaborate message. There are feminist tropes of “GIRLS UNITE” “GRLPWR” and the ever-popular (yet ever-true) “WE SHOULD ALL BE FEMINISTS”, demonstrations of compassion for the victims of Grenfell, Manchester and more, and even curse words for less favourable observers.

 If there was only one way of screaming your fashion cause/political views/feminist love without muttering a word, slogan tees are at your service. Perhaps, a girl just wants to wear a top shouting “WE STILL HOOD FAMOUS” on a Saturday evening takeaway run– I’m not judging.

Please don’t think it’s all serious. Slogan tees can be simply something you shouldn’t be able to relate to – like “EXISTENTIAL EMERGENCIES ONLY.” My white and red tee is from bershka’s “MOTEL” collection and is currently in the sale here.

It’s got front and back action and looks best paired with high-waisted jeans. Classic outfit. 

If you wanted to appropriate it to work wear, then I’m sure the right trousers and jacket would be happy to abide.

Let your tee do the talking.
