WYW: Shirts With Words On Them?

I’ve been seeing more of these lately, have you? I remember when it was way cool to have a shirt with a message on it – my personal favorite from junior high school was definitely my “SuperFreak” t-shirt, completely with Superman-esque logo (I was pretty cool, you guys) – and it appears that this style of tee fell into the cyclical fashion vortex, because it’s back again, and in demand!

Maybe it’s related to the rise of irony, yes? Couple irony with minimalist design, and you’ve got floating letter-patterned fashion. You know, the find-single-object-and-make-it-into-a-pattern thing? We’ve had tights with words on them, shorts with letters on them – doesn’t it make sense that the shirt, the most basic of all basics, be adorned with words, too? I’m actually pretty disappointed that I haven’t found a cream, knit sweater with black letters all over it. I would snap that up in a heartbeat! (Excuse for a DIY project, y/y?)

Would you wear shirts with words on them?

The t-shirt at the top of this post is the Shiny Message T-shirt from Mango, $19.99.

    Very rarely. It depends on the design.

      I think this is my answer, too!

    I made a vow long ago to avoid shirts with words on them (that includes bran names), and I’m definitely going to stick with it. So, shirts with words are a no for me, sorry trend gods!

    I’m not usually a shirts-with-words girl, but some of the designers have been coming up with super fun repeating word prints I like!

    I want to say that I would because they are fun and on trend, but I don’t think I would, though I might wear the some of the new pop art things I have been seeing as a small exception.
