I’m going through a phase of transition from girl-next-door to edgy, androgynous style. Anything thats fun, out of the box, and adds a little drama catches my eye first and sometimes becomes a part of my wardrobe too. And thankfully this era of fashion is experimental and unapologetic!
Recently while doing some research work on trends and forecasts, i noticed the return of SLOGANS & STATEMENTS in a much glorious way! You might raise eyebrows on those ‘I’m Rich Bitch’ t-shirts, but you cant ignore the ‘say it without uttering a word’ trend…
Yes its back! when you really wanna say it, and say it loud: let statements and slogans do the talking for you ( it doesn’t have to prove/mean anything, u know). Go easy with the trend, by simply starting with one element and then adding on to create some drama. Now is the time to introduce your childhood clothes back to the closet, i.e. if u fit into it.

When i found this cap, i decided to do this post (no kidding!) It doesn’t prove any point, but the beauty of this cap is that its open to interpretations. And i decided to wear it with a vintage comic vest and a denim shirt. Distressed denims with my favorite pair of footwear ( of the season) completed my entire look. A bright color tote adds to the overall monochrome ensemble. A trinket bracelet, ‘love’ ring and a watch was the only choice of accessories i chose to wear.
Its a super-fun trend to play around with & the medium sometimes becomes more important than the message/ slogan. It need not just be a brands name or an entire text. Fragments of words, that could be politically relevant, or be abstract, either define your state of mind, or be downright cheeky will always draw the eye.
Stylist’s tip: While choosing a sloganned, statement-making pieces to buy remember one thing: the less generic they are, the better.
Take inspiration from these statement-making pieces-

Show me how would you style your sloganned pieces with a swag?
