Tour and band merchandise is a major pop culture trend at the moment, it would be difficult to go out and not see someone wearing it, from regular people to high profile celebrities. It’s safe to say it’s ‘in’!
Personally, I love tour merch style, often being slightly oversized, with unique and interesting, sometimes controversial graphics; and my collection is growing and some pieces are definitely becoming some of my favourites in my wardrobe, so I thought I’d give you a little insight into what I have and what I’m loving…
Possibly one of the most iconic graphics of all time, the Rolling Stones logo, instantly recognisable and always stylish. “Band Tees” are unmissable these days and I picked this one up from Bershka. It is slightly longline and has a ripped style hem and sleeves, perfect to wear with some black biker jeans, and an oversized denim jacket for an easy street style look, that you can throw on quickly but still look great. If you’re not a fan of The Stones T-Shirt you can find loads of alternative band tops in stores like Urban Outfitters.
Anti World Tour
The most controversial and bold pieces in my collection – Rihanna’s Anti World Tour T-Shirt. I love this style of band merchandise, featuring a bold image on the front, with bright text and the venues/dates on the back! I picked up this Anti World Tour top at V-Festival in Summer and I love the fit and colour, it’s another throw on piece that can make a great outfit!
Undoubtedly one of, if not the most hyped up merchandise stores of the year… Pablo Merch! Kanye West’s designs and style are recognisable globally and the exclusivity of these collections (being sold once in worldwide pop up stores) make them even more desirable. The Pablo hoodie is by far my favourite piece of merchandise in my collection – it’s super versatile, pairing it with some black jeans and and sneakers to keep it casual or alternatively some chelsea boots and a wool coat to smarten it up! Either way, I love it and I imagine I’ll be wearing it a lot over the Winter season.
