Fashion has always been about self-expression, but what happens when you take a wardrobe staple and stamp it with a provoking message – a Spring / Summer sensation, that’s what!

Designers across the world have evolved an everyday classic into a modern-day messenger for cheeky slogans and empowering statements, which has seen a spirited mood taking over catwalks and streets across the globe. With the likes of Dior stamping t-shirts with feminist values and Henry Holland’s designs emblazoned with mischievous mantras, how could we say no to these new and improved sassy essentials.

This season it’s all about letting the t-shirts do the talking and we have just the brands to see you through this trend in style. If you’re looking for something that screams ‘girl power’ then Aeryne has got you covered with their Womanhood tee – this is one that will be sure to radiate cool-girl vibes.  Or perhaps you’re after something that is more playful, then check out Blake Seven or Classy for a piece that is a little more light hearted. 

How could we forget? The best thing about this trend is that it’s super easy to wear and it doesn’t take much to incorporate into your everyday look – which is ideal for those that aren’t brave enough to sport tulle ruffles or metallic pleats. For a laid back, day vibe just wear with a pair of cropped trousers from Side party and some Miista sliders, or for something a bit more girly glam, grab a pink midi skirt from After Market and Truffle block heeled boots. Voila!
