  • Wear with pride on 8th March

    These days, the best place to express your feelings isn’t on social media – it’s on your body (no, not a tattoo, although why not?), it’s on a slogan Tee. If proof were needed, just look at Maria Grazia Chiuri’s now iconic feminist t-shirts at Dior.

    The thing is, printed t-shirts are so much more than a fashion fad now. Sadly, in the wake of the #metoo movement, the Brett Kavanaugh hearing, the Sir Philip Green scandal and other daily occurrences of women’s rights being violated, there are still so many causes to be vocal about. which is why the International Women’s Day 2019 campaign theme of #BalanceforBetter is a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world.

    But while the message is obviously the whole point of the t-shirt, there is no harm in having a bit of fun with styling it. Colourful t-shirts are best worn with pastel corduroy suits and pointy ankle boots, while a simple black on white slogan t-shirt always works well with a pleated skirt and a blazer. For a more comfortable approach, both looks work well with trainers or flat mules.

    Obviously, we don’t need an excuse to wear our favourite feminist t-shirts. However, International Women’s Day on 8th March, is as good a time as any to sport yours.

    With that in mind, we’ve rounded up our pick of the most empowering slogan t-shirts from the high street, and even better, for some of those you purchase, donations will be made to charities that support women’s causes, such as the Amplifier Foundation, mothers2mothers and International Women’s Day 2019 partners Catalyst and WAGGGS.

    Meanwhile, over on Net-A-Porter, designers like Rosie Assoulin, Victoria Beckham and Ellery have teamed up with Women for Women International to create a line of t-shirts that will help equip women with skills and resources to overcome poverty, stand up for their rights and create sustainable change for themselves, their families and communities. Each t-shirt represents the designer’s own interpretation of female bravery and empowerment.

    Or, if you’re looking of pyjamas, Pour Les Femmes – which was founded by Robin Wright and Karen Fowler – work with Action Kivu to support women, children, and communities of the Congo through vocational training and education. The designs are beautifully simple and ethical.

    So, to use the International Women’s Day 2019 slogan, #BalanceforBetter and support gender equality with these slogan t-shirts.
