MOMMA LOVES… tops that make a statement for moms and kids

Tops that make a statement have been popular for babies and kids for ages – there’s nothing quite so darling as a newborn baby in an I love my grandma onesie or even a ladies love me tee…  Its funny and sweet to dress our little ones in the words they can’t yet say.  But in a world where Twitter, Facebook and blogging has become so prevalent it was only a matter of time that making a statement translated into fashion.  Why tattoo our body with a thought or mantra when you could just where the t-shirt – it seems far less permanent…  That said, I’m with stupid and various other not so elegant slogan tees have been around for ages too – but that’s not what I’m talking about.  These tops are witty, thoughtful, and far more beautifully designed.  This is not your tourist tee – these tops that make a statement are done in beautiful clean fonts and without too much fuss – the wearability is in the simplicity.  The statements might be in french and they might be somewhat suggestive – but they shouldn’t say anything you wouldn’t want out there in the world.  Love, peace, and a bit of silliness never hurt anyone – its essentially a great take on your basics.   Rather than wearing a plain tee or sweatshirt the tops with text allow you to have a bit of fun while still being casual, relaxed and even stylish.  Alexander Wang sent a statement top down his f/w 2014 collection with Parental Advisory emblazoned on the front and this look was immediately knocked off before his version could make it to stores indicating just how mass this style has gotten.  Celebrities have been rocking this trend often as away to make a statement without saying a word when trailed by the paparazzi.  Again, the key to wearing these tops is to fun with it but always keep it simple.  For the mom’s put something positive in the world – it should go without saying, but never feature anything offensive or with swear words! As for our little ones – tops that make a statement are always going to be popular and a great way to inject some humor into their style.  Here are some of my favorite tops with something to say…
