Firstly, a word to the wise: whether it’s a provocative political statement, witty play on words, motivational message or badge of brand loyalty, your slogan speaks volumes about you. So wear your words with conviction and style them out with confidence, and once you’ve selected your slogan of choice, don’t cover it up. If you have to wear a jacket, keep it open to make sure your message shines through.
When it comes to the styling, it’s a surprisingly versatile piece. Take your slogan T-shirt to work with a smart pinstripe suit, or pair it with a colourful corduroy suit for a more vibrant take – a pair of sneakers, this season’s other IT-item will carry you into the weekend.
You could also keep your styling chic and simple with a classic graphic T-shirt and jeans combination – just remember the ‘French tuck’ is mandatory. Of course you’re not only limited to trousers either, an eye-catching T-shirt partners just as well with skirts, from below-the-knee pencil styles to full length, and flirty skater cuts.
For a fashion-forward look, take your cue from the print when it comes to colour pairings. A crisp white T-shirt with red-and-black graphics looks effortlessly cool when teamed with a black tuxedo jacket, satin-striped trousers and a swipe of red lipstick for an edgy yet elegant evening look. Meanwhile a contrasting palette is more casual if you’re pairing it with track pants and trainers for chilling out at the end of a busy working day.
By definition an extrovert garment, the graphic T-shirt loves a pattern – take a white slogan tee down the rock-and-roll route and team with colourful, eye-catching tartans and checks, or on-trend animal print. Mix and don’t match according to your mood and the mantra of the day.
Follow the same principle when it comes to fabrics – a cool cotton T-shirt is always happy to share its limelight with luxury fabrics, so luxe it up with a satin skirt or exquisitely tailored butter-soft leather trousers.
This season sneakers are also a must-buy piece, and thankfully these two are a match made in heaven. Pair your slogan T-shirt with a box-fresh pair and midi skirt for the ultimate in casual cool office wear that you’ll want to don into the weekend.
However you style your slogan T-shirt and sneakers, this nineties-inspired look is easy to wear and comes with fun guaranteed – in fact we can almost hear the catchy pop songs from *N Sync now. So in the words of one of the world’s most iconic slogan’s T-shirts, we say “Relax!”
