So over: The slogan tee

Anyone else finding themselves feeling increasingly out of step with their contemporaries? We use the 'So Over' column to bemoan the sartorial and social missteps of our time, and with the ubiquitous slogan T, we're seeing two of our biggest pet peeves colliding - deep and meaningful quotes and shallow self-empowerment - in one irritating garment.

Clothing exclaiming 'Be-You-Tiful', 'I Am Who I Am' or 'The Babe With The Power' has got to be the most irritating invention of the age. If you just get on with being a babe with the power, you don't need a T-shirt.

Unless the proclamation is, in fact, something more adult-centric and topical - see Angela Scanlon, pictured - then, frankly, we don't care if you 'Woke Up Like This'.
