Style + Motivating Slogan Tees

How To Style A Slogan Tee| Thrifting Diva
Do you believe that something as simple as how you dress could affect your attitude, and even more importantly, your self-confidence? Dressing with confidence is more than wearing the latest fashion trend, it’s about feeling good about what you’re wearing, looking put together and feeling self-assured in any situation.  However, sometimes the statements on our fashion pieces can give us that boost of confidence where needed.  The slogan tee can be a weapon of choice in order to make a statement without saying a word.  It can also be your wearable inspiration.

When I saw this slogan tee top from Goodwill, I immediate swooped it up.  Check out the slogan:  Work Hard, Hustle Harder, Kill Everything.  This is pure motivation.  This is inspiring.  This  slogan tee has the ability to boost my confidence even when I am not trying.  I am such a fan of thrifting my slogan and graphic tees from thrift stores.  The thrill of hunting through the t-shirt section, and of course the amazing prices at the thrift stores cannot be beaten.  I thrifted this slogan t-shirt for only $1.99.   Motivation for only $1.99 – I’ll take it!

Honestly speaking, I don’t often tend to grab jeans and a t-shirt as first choices.  However, when I do consider styling my slogan tees, I always tend to add a blazer to the mix, as incorporating blazers to these outfits will make the look stylish and comfortable.  Which busy woman does not love a quick and easy outfit idea.  In styling this slogan tee, I choose this black tailored fringe blazer from Banana Republic.  I bought it during the end of season amazing clearance sale for $24.00.  It had originally retailed for $128.  The tailored blazer smartens up the look, and makes the look suitable for an evening out.

I think the key to wearing the jeans and slogan tee look is to ensure all the other parts are sophisticated enough so you avoid the dreaded student look.  The aim is to look like you’ve just dashed out of the house and you didn’t have time to change your top. The finally ensemble should say ‘effortless chic’.  At the risk of stating the obvious, make sure you have jeans that look great on you. If they don’t fit you well, you’ll look sloppy and frumpy no matter how perfectly accessorized, or how motivating your slogan tee.  They can be dressy or casual, depending on the look you’re going for.  Here, I styled this look with these fabulous white skinny jeans from Old Navy.  They are currently 40% off $40!

Of course, a great pair of heels always goes a long way in making an outfit pop, especially when that outfit is a jeans and slogan tee combo.  These Chinese Laundry gorgeous aztec print heels were only $34 when I purchased them on Amazon.  I initially saw them in a Style Watch magazine, and searched everywhere for the best available price.  They are stunning, comfortable and sets off any outfit.

Finally, I accessorized with this gray envelope clutch that I got as a Christmas present.  I love a great clutch as it tends to make the outfit uber chic and sleek in my opinion.  If you don’t have a couple of clutches for your evening affairs, you should definitely consider adding them to your rotations.

Have I convinced you to rock some slogan tees, especially ones that provides you motivation and builds on your confidence.  Try to remember that your closet is far from frivolous.  It contains a myriad of channels to heightened performance, a selection of gateways to the best versions of yourself.

  1. That is a super cute t-shirt. I am all about eye catching tees like this, so I totally want to get one for myself.

    1. Thank you! Simple pieces can also have their star power with the right accompanying pieces. Of course, wearing jeans is not an issue, just choose some other shoes rather than the flip flops and you have a cute look.

    1. Melissa,
      Thank you. Yes, you absolutely do not need to spend a lot to look amazing. I actually googled the tee, and the company does sell them online. However, that is why I love thrift stores. The one of a kind look is that I am aiming for when I purchase my clothes.

    1. Cecilia,
      Thank you!!! Try finding something that is you. Not every slogan tee fits me, but I love the ones that talk to my personality. They won’t laught if it says something about who you are and fits with your personality.

  2. Cute outfit, great choices, and awesome prices/finds!! You’re so right- your outfit can change a lot about how you feel, and if you choose the right outfit , you’ll feel great (you’ll also feel great knowing you didn’t pay an arm and a leg for it!! Great BR Blazer, btw!)

    1. Pam,
      YES!!!!! Thanks for saying this. I try to inspire women whenever we talk about clothing choices, that the feeling inside is the best when you feel confident. The fact that your budget stays low for these items is a bonus.

  3. Those tees are really fun and they make any outfit stand out! I think it’s awesome how you styled this outfit, you look so fierce! The heels are a show stopper as well! WOW!

  4. I’m not a jeans person either. I have three in total. A grey, blue and black. I had a white once, and I used it over and over and over. Lol. I’m a thrift store shopper when I can find one and I really love the treasures you find there. Love the shoes!

  5. You look absolutely amazing!! I do love a good slogan and motivational tee. I see a lot of them in the exercise clothes space but not so many just an ordinary tee so I like this idea!

  6. I have shoe envy!!! I am in love with your shoes–but alas, I cannot wear heels. I am a total klutz and have never mastered that skill. I will have to continue to love those from afar.

  7. I love this look…I regularly wear jeans, t-shirt and blazer. I love the shoes but I spend my life in flats, I’m too tall for heels unless it’s a special occasion!

  8. You can never underestimate the power of a good pair of jeans. They can really make you feel like you’re on top of the world, especially when you pair them with such an inspiring tee.

  9. I love slogan and graphic tees, they’re just fun to wear and they’re definitely easy to style! You can go for a casual look with some jeans or shorts or you can go full on chic with heels! I totally love the way you styled this one!

  10. Hell yeah, you have convinced me to get me some motivation tee. love the one you are rocking, the message is just amazing, The whole ensemble is stunning by the ways. Love the heels and jeans.

  11. Your shoes! They are so cute and I love how you make it pop with that shirt! It’s super cute! I love motivational tees like this! They’re fun!
