The Slogan Tee

Slogan tees have been trending for awhile. I like to choose a slogan that represent me. Usually something artsy or things that I like. A slogan tee should be about you not just a brand. Here are some styling tips for almost every occasion.

WORKWEAR

My workplace recently went jeans-everyday which makes it so easy in the morning but heading into summer I like to wear more dresses – stay tuned for my summer picks! Slogan tees are great and unexpected under suits and with pencil skirts.

 

These tees are both JCrew. The Champagne tee lists different types of sparkling wine -which I love. I paired it with a light pink skirt and ballet flats. I like the retro look of flats with a pencil skirt and it’s comfortable when you’re running to meetings all day. This cream & black tee looks sharp under this black suit and adds some fun – making it look less rigid. Below is a closer look at the slogans.

 

French fries & Italian guys – stuff I love or stuff I should avoid?

For a casual look I like this monochrome look of all bordeaux. This tee has a catch phrase I live by in my work – “creativity has no borders” and has great ruffle and lace details. I could also dress it up with pencil skirt and heels. This Georgia Okeefe quote is also special to me. I saw her show at the AGO a couple of years ago and was so inspired by her work and the way she lived & worked on her own terms. This grey tee I’ve styled with dark denim and tropical print Converse sneakers.

 

Night out or brunch? Here are a couple of options. Chic is the word with this black ruffle sweatshirt. I’ve paired it with this fringe pencil skirt. Texture on texture and a pop of colour with the teal kitten heels. Flower power is a top I snagged on the Joe Fresh clearance rack for $5. I love it with dark denim – especially this Paige denim skirt. I’ve kept the espadrilles in line with the dark denim so the top becomes the show piece.

 

Another important tip about slogan tees – if it seems offensive it probably is so consider another option before wearing it to work or out with friends.

Day 23

 

I’m a fan of the slogan tee as long as it’s not offensive. I don’t mind if it’s provocative but I draw the line at swear words or offending content.

I’m showing 3 possibilities for today’s look.

 

Flower Power by Joe Fresh. Words on a print background, like a floral, was a huge trend last year. I like the pale pink of this top and the sunflowers.

Super Dry – this Japanese brand never disappoints. The gold and turquoise on charcoal grey is what drew me to this t-shirt. I’m pretty sure it just says Super Dry and not anything offensive in the japanese characters. Fingers crossed.

On Day 3, I went to the Georgia O’Keeffe exhibit at the AGO. I loved this quote so much I had to get the t-shirt. Her life and work are such an inspiration to me.

I decided on the Super Dry Tee and I love how this look came together with turquoise skirt and accessories.
