After seeing “The September Issue,” Grace Coddington is kind of my new obsession. From her bright red curls to her adorable cats to her indescribable talent and determination as an editor of Vogue, she’s a true genius. So it really was only a matter of time before she was immortalized in some form. Cult tee company Deer Dana, creator of such brilliance as the Bruce Weber, Bill Cunningham, and Olivier Theyskens shirts, has now given Grace her very own T-shirt moment. And while the majority of the shirts are plain black and white, of course Grace’s flame red hair is appropriately completely accurate. They retail for $45, but now you’ll always have a bit of Grace in your life. [Deer Dana]

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. Where would James Dean, Marlon Brando, or Michael Jackson have been without the super simple, super sexy white t-shirt? There are several elements that elevate the standard tee: color, graphics, fit and, most importantly, fabric. The latter is what makes Market tees so amazing. The recently debuted line believes in simplicity. So they limit their collection to a variety of plain, cotton t-shirts that still manage to be infinitely comfortable and sexy. Drew Barrymore, Blake Lively and Lindsay Lohan have all been snapped while wearing them. What drives them to the brand is what will make you fall in love, too: buttery fabrics, rainbow colors, and the perfect fit. We got to test-run these tees and got more compliments than we can count. They’re perfect paired with jeans and sneakers or a chic mini-skirt and heels — and the prices are equally attractive at $24 to $35. Check out their latest styles and colors and find out where to buy online. Keep reading »
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 has already developed a bit of a cult following for his other tees which feature fashion-forward slogans such as “Save Anna [Wintour]” and “I Die. Bananas,” an homage to one of Rachel Zoe’s favorite sayings. These quirky tees will set you back $35 a pop. Log on to Sauve’s site to find out how to buy. [The Cut] Keep reading »
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 makeup artist on set, Susan Heydt, revealed that MObama wore a blue Gap cardigan over a J.Crew skirt. But with as much love as she shows them, when are these designers going to return the favor with a Michelle Obama-inspired collection? Keep reading »
It can be a lot of work justifying new purchases when we’re totally broke and probably didn’t need that fifth tutu skirt if we’re being totally honest. So before you buy yet another black dress, consider a purchase you wouldn’t have to feel guilty about. DKNY‘s new charity tee shirt is the perfect, cute loophole in your no-shopping contract!
The simple black-and-white illustrated tee costs $65 and funds benefit one of five New York charities. Best part is that you get to pick which charity you want the money to go to. Pick one up at DKNY stores or online and bask in the glow of your new shirt and the karma points you’ll get for buying it. [Elle UK] Keep reading »
The fight to legalize same-sex marriage just got more um, fashionable? Marc Jacobs has added his two cents to the debate with these limited-edition, illustrated tees. One features a couple and their child, all in matching LBDs, while the other features an image of the U.S. flag and dollar signs. Both boldly say, “I Pay My Taxes. I Want My Rights.” The shirts are only $24 a pop, but if you want one and don’t live in the New York City area, you’re sorta out of luck. They’re only sold at the Marc by Marc Jacobs accessories store in downtown Manhattan and only 200 of each style have been produced for purchase. Still, there’s always Ebay. [The Cut] Keep reading »
