What to Wear to Your Next Protest

Need a fresh protest tee so you aren’t repeating too much on your Instagram feed? We’ve got you covered, from reasonable to designer. Can’t make it to many protests because you are working full-time while taking care of three young children? You can still wear the t-shirt, as they say. Or the mask! From reasonable to designer, these are some of our favorite options for protest tees, masks, and accessories.

Happy Shopping!

T-Shirts and Sweaters

Like many, my protest t-shirt collection started a little more than four years ago. The place to shop for protest wear in DC is called The Outrage. You may recall my original buying frenzy at the store during the last presidential election cycle. I have the tank version of the policy and change t-shirt below, among others. In light of recent events though, I think it is time for a new haul. Lingua Franca, the expensive protest sweater brand below, started the designer trend five years ago, and have since expanded their collection to include custom items.
