Spring Weekend tanks can be so many things: oddly specific, occasionally unflatteringly, aggressively well designed, and in support of a good cause. Another year means another round-up, so that you, the consumer, can make an informed decision on which piece of apparel you will be
almost puking on ROCKING come April. Welcome to the line-up release party, swag edition.
The feminist killjoy:
Shout-out to our fellow student publication, bluestockings, for taking a b.s. insult and turning it into an awesome tank. Also, a shout-out to booster.com, which really wants us to know that the colors shown may vary from shirt to shirt. Proceeds go towards keeping bluestocking’s website, magazine, and workshops alive and well. $20 here.
The tanks that won’t leave you alone:
From Facebook groups to posters in the Jameson bathroom, these babies have been everywhere. The dizzy bear design is solid, and the plant-friendly option could always be reincorporated into your wardrobe later in the month… or if Willie Nelson visits Providence. $15 here, before shipping and handling.
For everyone who is bummed that neither the Backstreet Boys or the Spice Girls will be making an appearance this Spring Weekend, these tanks are for you. Also, for everyone who loves and requires consent (which should, indeed, be everyone). The shirts are relevant, and the altered lyrics are extremely catchy. Friends may last forever but Spring Weekend never ends. $16 here, and “profits go towards sexual assault prevention education, and the Day One Sexual Assault and Trauma Center.”
