On Trend: Female Empowerment Tops

Ever since Maria Grazia Chiuri sent a “We Should All Be Feminists” T-shirt down the runway during her first show for Dior, shirts bearing female empowerment slogans have begun popping up in popular stores everywhere. While the concept of “wearing” your support for a cause is nothing new, it is truly inspiring to see just how widespread this movement is (especially in light of some pretty heavy misogynist actions from you-know-who).

Now I know that it may just be a “trend” but I like to think that the messages behind these shirts are sinking in and we’re becoming kinder to, and more supportive of our fellow woman and beginning to feel more empowered, and celebratory of who we are as women.

So, for those of us that don’t have $710 to spend on a t-shirt, here are a couple of great female empowerment sloganed tops, all available at Coquitlam Centre.

Little Moon Achillia T-Shirt

This oh-so-soft t-shirt uses beading to get it's message across. Pair with your favourite pair of jeans and sneakers or with a mid-length flowy skirt and boots.

For those of you that don't know BRUNETTE THE LABEL (ummm??) it was founded in 2014 by North Van native and total Boss Babe Miriam Alden. In addition to sweatshirts, there are t-shirts, tanks, vegan leather jackets, bombers and accessories like mugs, waterbottles and necklaces. Babes Supporting Babes, GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS, Boss Babe...take your pick, they're all good.
