Tried & Tested: The Best Cotton Tee On The Market

Jeans always get front and center when it comes to icons of American style. But everyone knows the silent star is really the T-shirt.

Chris Sauve Does It Again

How is it that graphic tee shirts elevate mundane sayings into major fashion moments? Case in point: this shirt. It's the brainchild of New York City-based designer and art director Christopher Sauve and features a sketch of Jesus (notice the Vogue collar he is rocking), plus the popular saying "God Don't Like Ugly." Sauve…

Spotted! The Michelle Obama Clothes Line

Sure, she knows a thing or two about high-end designers (Jason Wu, anyone?), but that doesn't mean First Lady Michelle Obama doesn't wear less pricey ones. Her love of The Gap and J.Crew is well-documented and she recently wore both at the cover shoot for a new magazine, Children's Health. The…

Crave: Christopher Kane Gorilla Shirts

I don't know what all the fuss is about when it comes to these ugly/sexy Christopher Kane gorilla shirts/dresses, but I love them. It makes as much sense as why people enjoy sitting in the rain or feel the need to eat Oreos with peanut butter. Celebs from Rihanna to our…

7th Grader Is Forced To Take Off A Pro-Life T-Shirt

A California 7th grader is fighting for her right to…wear a T-shirt. Anna Amador is representing her daughter in the lawsuit against McSwain Elementary School after her daughter was forced to take off her pro-life T-shirt back in April 2008. Celebrating “National Pro-Life T-shirt Day”—which I didn’t even know existed—the girl sported a graphic (pun!)…

Howl At The Moon!

We all had one. A kid in our junior high school class who wore a wolf T-shirt, I mean. That kid was ahead of the curve, as the wolf T is suddenly oh-so ironically in. The craze started when a T-shirt, with three wolves illustrated on it, went up for sale on Amazo…

California just legalized gay marriage, but they might need to explicitly legalize gay slogan t-shirts too. Lapriss Gilbert, 31, was booted from the Social Security office in Van Nuys by a security guard who claimed he wasn’t allowed to let her in the government building because of her “Lesbian.com” t-shirt. Gilbert, who was simply there…

Crave: Off-The-Shoulder T

I must admit, I find off-the-shoulder tops a little tricky, as you have to make the choice -- bra or no bra? I can safely go with no bra, because I don't have much in the jumblies department, but larger busted girls either have to go the strapless route (HATE) or embrace having the stra…

Crave: Heart Pocket T

You know, pocket T's have really been kind of out of style for a while now, and I am not sure why. That pocket totally serves a useful purpose, like storing cash when you don't want to bring your wallet to buy lunch. Anyway, this shirt from Urban Outfitters is super cute and also come…

Top Five T-Shirts That Will Not Get You Laid, Fellas

I am amazed by the rise of the slogan t-shirt. You know, "Everybody Loves An Italian Girl", "Barack 'N' Roll", "More Cowbell", "What Would Jesus Do"...I blame Urban Outfitters. But anyway, the most annoying aspect of this clothing phenomenon is that it's given people the false impression that it's okay to wear their stupidity, sexist…

The Gap has joined forces with the venerable Whitney Museum to design a line of t-shirts celebrating the Whitney Biennial. The t-shirt above is not from that collection -- it's from Uniqlo, a Japanese chain that's similar to The Gap. See, the Gap t-shirts are retailing for $28, but Uniqlo's line of T's with influential…
