Your closet can probably use a new mix of T-shirts. Remember when we were kids, and how much we loved a fun graphic tee? These days, a number of companies are making slogan tees and graphic tee in adult-appropriate editions.
A good slogan T-shirt can go a long way. Whether it’s your personal mantra, a funny quote, or something you’re thinking but probably don’t want to walk around saying, there’s a shirt to say what’s on your chest. Literally and figuratively.
Below, check out our picks for some of the best slogan T-shirts to shop online now.
1. SpongeBob SquarePants A Load Of Barnacles Tee
There’s nothing like a good TV show reference that really speaks to life. The episode of SpongeBob when Sandy made the whole town of Bikini Bottom search for SpongeBob only to find out SpongeBob was actually hiding from her, is iconic. Not only was this episode hilarious, we also got to witness the moment that that random fish said their whole search was “a load of barnacles.” A lot of things in life are a load of barnacles, so let’s remind people what we’re all thinking.
2. Love Yourself Embroidered Tee
A positive slogan is also a must to carry around. “Love Yourself” is a good reminder to embrace self-care and be kind to yourself. It may also remind you of Justin Bieber’s song of the same name, a modern pop classic that he co-wrote with Ed Sheeran and Benny Blanco. This simple shirt’s advice is actually the best thing you can do for yourself.
3. Nike Chase the Dream Graphic Tee
Nike loves to tell us to “Just Do It.” But this other slogan is pretty solid advice, too. As we work towards our goals, we should be chasing the dream. Many celebrities will admit that fame isn’t everything. This shirt is your reminder to focus on what you love, whatever that may be.
4. Wu-Tang Clan Tiger Long Sleeve Tee
This long-sleeve T-shirt speaks to Wu-Tang Clan’s status as an iconic rap group, but also their second studio album. Wu-Tang Forever (1997) may not have won for Best Rap Album at the Grammys, but it remains a classic body of work in hip hop. If you’re a Wu-Tang fan, this T-shirt definitely deserves a spot in your wardrobe.
5. “I May Be Left Handed But I’m Always Right,” Leftie Slogan T-Shirt
Left-handed people don’t get enough love in this world. From a lack of lefty desks and scissors, it’s no wonder lefties have a sense of pride (and struggle) living in a world full of mostly righties. So, this shirt has a humorous pun to hype up lefties and remind the world that we actually adjust to a lot that wasn’t necessarily made in our favor. In that way, we are always right.
6. Music Is What Feelings Sounds Like Screen Printed T-Shirt
A slogan T-shirt that speaks to your love of music is another good option. If someone asked how you would describe music, this is one of a million different answers you could come up with. But, most would probably agree that music expresses feeling through sound. It’s something we’re so lucky to have.
7. Altru Men’s No Planet B Graphic Tee
We can’t ignore what’s happening in our world, or to it. Climate change is rapidly shifting our weather patterns and even recently, the color of the sun and moon. This shirt tells everyone that we don’t have another planet to go to if we can’t manage to properly protect the earth. It seems a bit depressing because it is. The more we talk about it and acknowledge it, the sooner we can get to taking more aggressive action.
