OOTD: THE SLOGAN TEE

UK fashion blogger floral wrap skirt slogan tee
Despite many people believing fashion is a completely superficial industry all about aesthetics. In my opinion it's a direct reflection of – and reaction to – society. It's an outlet by which to express not only our personalities and beliefs but our frustrations with the world. In doing so, we might even be able to encourage change. 

Fashion is art, and while I cannot profess to taking it too seriously or choosing my clothes based on the socio-political problems or stances they appear to address, you've got to admit that a lot of current trends, such as slogan tees (most of which feature feminist phrases) and gender-neutral clothing for example, are a result of those atop the fashion pyramid recognising that we're all bloody frustrated with issues such as gender divides and discrimination.

Not only is this slogan tee just a bit of a joke, but I see it as also being an indicator in this turbulent time that we are all human, and as humans we should respect each other, be kind to each other and do our best to make each other's lives easier and more enjoyable. 

Fashion can have negative or positive consequences, but I fully support trends like the slogan tee, and encourage everyone to splash out on one!

Styling a floral skirt for me almost always involves grunging it up a bit. I like to add leather, studs, chunky boots and in this case, fishnets. I just love adding a bit of a tough edge. I think it's important too to think outside the box, and not always pair your items with the first piece or colour that comes to mind – this will also help your cost per wear for items, because you can rewear them in different ways. When I'm struggling to do this, I find Pinterest is a great place to go for a bit of inspiration, or to some of my favourite bloggers who I know will have similar items.

  1. You look absolutely gorgeous as always!! Definitely so true, that we need to be kinder to one another at the moment, especially with so many crap things happening in the world!!

    Also, not sure if you're aware but the alignment on the first image is off, so you can't ready half of the first paragraph as it is all pushed to the side - just thought i'd let you know!
