As a 90s kid, I’ve long been a fan of the Spice Girls. But at five, I didn’t realise what their ‘girl power!’ slogan really meant.
These days, however, it’s something that is really important to me. And I love that these days feminism and fashion go hand-in-hand.
T shirt: eBay; Skirt: Primark (last year); Boots: Debenhams; Sunglasses: Primark
You know ya girl loves orange, so this t shirt was a total winner for me. Wearing this outfit round Edinburgh I really felt like I was making a statement. After all, how can you ignore a message if it’s spread with such tangerine hues? I’ve worn this t shirt quite a lot since I bought it a few weeks ago, but the combo with this skirt is definitely my favourite look.
So feminism seems to be very much a ‘trend’ right now, thanks to Dior and other catwalk designers. There’s been a lot of criticism of this, and it’s not totally unfounded. But is it a chicken or an egg scenario? That is, are women wearing feminist slogans on their chests because it’s ‘cool’, or is being a feminist so important to young women these days that designers are starting to take note?
Personally, I think it’s the latter. These days people are realising that feminism isn’t a dirty word, but the simple belief that men and women should be treated equally. And that seems plenty ‘cool’ to me.
So if you also fancy joining the feminist style tribe, I’ve collated some of my favourite girl power-inspired t shirts below.
Go on- say it loud and proud, sister!
