If it were up to me, I’d totally and completely control myself, because it’s really easy to just flow with the trend and over consume stuff.
However, since I am me, and me or I has always preferred the “less is more” anthem, though the logomania trend has not completely escaped me, I believe there could be some really stylish, and (less or more) subtle ways to wear them and not make it look like we’re being tacky or overly brand conscious.
Out of all the trends, my favourites have to be slight logos on accessories (below) – mainly the footwear, zipper / bi-fold clutches and (surprise!) socks. You can, honestly, never have enough socks. And a bit of monogram visible on them is not an innovative way to emblazon the logos, I’ll admit, but they are definitely more to my liking because… they are socks!
Among others, there are 9 more interesting ways to wear your logos proudly but with a bit of “style humility” which, seems paradoxical to me tbh. So, here they are:
- Bag Straps. Those detachable, change-able and personalised-able bag straps that almost every luxury brand is now selling!
- Monogram prints on accessories or even clothing. They look like prints, but like, trademarked prints!
- Graphic tshirts, styled with cute mini skirt underneath a sheath mini skirt. I love the Korean Streetstyle, and will be doing a piece on it superrr soon!
- Tshirts underneath slip dresses. Classic 90s!
- Trending fanny packs. Go ahead, buy them if you really love those1
- Graphic tshirt, styled with a denim jacket. Classic, it really never gets old.
- Logos on the back of the tshirt or the sweatshirt, styled with a shirts (plaid or not) tied around the waist to add more “colour zones” to the overall look.
- Graphic tshirts styled with classy midi skirts. It could be an awesome Friday office look!
- The Belt. Yes, I know a few of you sold your organs to get those GG belts, you die-hard fashionistas!
Well, logo or otherwise, in terms of styling, they do add an element of “the known” or “the relatability” factor to your outfit, which draws people in. So, I say, ride with the tide, my darlings! Go buy those logos but remember to style them well!
