Celebri­ties em­brace the slo­gan tee

IN­STEAD OF MAK­ING the ef­fort to ac­tu­ally ver­bally sup­port a cause or brand, why not just wear that love on your sleeve, or, even bet­ter, on your chest? Yes, they’re back: mes­sages on clothes, whether they be ad­ver­tis­ing for brands, po­lit­i­cal slo­gans or just your own ini­tials. We didn’t al­ways wear stuff with mes­sages on. Did the Vic­to­ri­ans wear smocks ad­ver­tis­ing Fry’s choco­late? Or bodices bear­ing the leg­end, ‘This is what a suf­frag­ist looks like’? They def­i­nitely liked mono­grams, though, just like some of the celebri­ties on this page. Re­mem­ber: there’s noth­ing that doesn’t even­tu­ally come back into fash­ion. — Tom Ough
