Truth be told, fashion may not be the first that comes to mind when addressing geopolitical crises or the divisive debates on immigration, gender or racial relations. But with the rise of statement shirts worn daily, fashion enthusiasts are more than ever loud and clear with their advocacies.
When statement shirts became available from the racks untucked from the warehouse storages, we knew that it would become a trend that will infringe dress codes. We knew because we were certain that for once, we can wear something that will justify our advocacy without apologizing nor shrugging a care. It’s the kind of feeling we want to keep, which undoubtedly steers the continuous re-invention of how we wear statement shirts.
These days, we can wear our statements in shirts no less, in gatherings that were once reserved for suits and tie. Or on sunny days, when we are in our most expressive mood, letting the world know what we stand for. Alas! The sweet sagacity of freedom!
