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.
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.
A mask is the perfect place for a statement of protest, don’t you think? Like you are talking, but no one can see you lips moving…I really want the Say Their Names mask from The Outrage, and not just because it is purple tie-dye.
How about a non-traditional protest statement? Are you a woman who wears a tie? We’ve got you covered. I love the omni-flattering colors of the Herwave Presidential Sheer Silk Wrap. This is the perfect gift for the feminist in your life. The Clare V. I Am a Voter Crossbody Strap is making its second appearance on the blog because well, it’s amazing!
What is the best place to buy protest t-shirts in your city? I know most of us aren’t shopping in person right now, but we can still support our local stores online so that they are there for us when the pandemic is over. Let us know in the comments!
