Two days ago I was walking at the mall when I noticed this American family strolling by. What made me turn for a second look was that the two kids who were with their mom and dad were both wearing pro-Obama shirts. The cute little girl was in a shirt that said “My Mama’s For Obama” while her older brother was wearing “My Pop’s For Barack”.
I thought it was cute and at the same time a clever way for the parents to make a statement or to declare their political inclinations. I browsed online and saw that there are really a lot of companies selling statement shirts for kids, especially during this season in America. You can even select the color, size, or style you prefer for your kid or for yourself.
This is another indication that fashion can really can go beyond beauty and style. It is a powerful tool to influence as well, or at least a great thing to use when you want to shout to the world who you believe in.
