We’ll definitely be wearing one of these on International Women’s Day…
While there’s always room to express your feelings on social media, if you’re looking for something a little more IRL, feminist t-shirts are a great place to start. Maria Grazia Chiuri’s now iconic feminist t-shirts for Dior’s SS17 show made us fall in love with the slogan top trend all over again, and our obsession just keeps on growing.
It’s easy to dismiss this as just another frivolous fashion trend, but it’s much more than that. Following the Brett Kavanaugh and Harvey Weinstein scandals, celebrities turned to their clothing to convey their support to female victims at red carpet events such as the Oscars.
With International Women’s Day approaching, what better time to show your support through your clothing? And, while supporting the cause on IWD is something to be proud of, you can also shout about your favourite causes any day of the year, and if it happens to involve a feminist t-shirt, then why not?
There is no harm in having a bit of fun with styling it though. This season, colourful t-shirts are best worn with oversized 80s suits with track sole boots, while a simple black on white slogan t-shirt always works well with a knitted skirt and a blazer. For a more comfortable approach, both looks work well with dad trainers and jeans.
With that in mind, I’ve rounded up a few of my favourite empowering feminist t-shirts, and even better, for some of those you purchase, donations will be made to important charities. These include Women for Women, an organisation that supports women survivors of war, by giving them a year-long training program to learn how to earn money, improve their family’s health and make their voices heard. Another charity includes Mind, a mental health organisation that provides people with the care and services they need.
