How You Can Support Causes in More Than a T-Shirt

Recently the world has been filled with voices who have had enough, and thank God for that. A day doesn’t go by where I don’t see a t-shirt with a slogan crying out for change. I love being able to see everyone’s passions and causes, but t-shirts aren’t for everyone. So, here are four other ways you can express your passions through fashion.


1. Bandanas

I love bandanas! There are so many ways you can wear them, and as a college student they’re great because they’re usually more affordable than t-shirts.


2. Iron-on Patches

Iron-on-patches put the power in your hands. You can make anything into a statement, far more than just your go-to rebel jean jacket.


3. Hats

What’s great about using hats to express your opinions is that there are so many different styles: baseball, baker, broad rim, even snapback and cowboy hats.


4. Pins​

Similar to patches, pins let you put your message wherever you want. You can also move them whenever you want so no matter where you’re going or what you’re wearing you can make it clear you’re on a mission to make a change.

This is my senior year of college and I'm a Public Relations major with a Creative Writing outside concentration. I was born and raised in So-Cal and love it so much I couldn't go too far. As much as South California is my home, I adore traveling and learning about other cultures. A Disney fan to the core you can find me watching any of their movies, or breaking my bank account at Disneyland, and if not I'll probably be reading, writing, or enjoying the Malibu climate.
