Matching shirts usually make an appearance on three special occasions—family reunions, grade-school field trips, and bachelorettes. Alas, the unfortunate truth is that in most of these cases, the bridesmaid shirts that force themselves into the public eye over and over and over again suck. They're poor quality, unbelievably tacky, and a color heretofore reserved for signs signaling impending danger. (For the record, I did offer to screen print my sister's face on her bachelorette shirts "ironically," but that suggestion was met with a cold stare and zero appreciation of my humor.)
No more! Did you think we at Brides would leave you uncovered? Bach, please! (Ed note: That should be a bachelorette party shirt slogan.) We scoured the Internet in search of only the best bridesmaid bachelorette tees—the cute, the clever, the classy, and the crassy. Find your bride identity below, and suit up your squad/tribe/entourage/posse/crew/team in a shirt that won't embarrass you. After all, that should be left up to the party itself, amirite? (Insert smirk emoji here.)
As a self-proclaimed member of The Basics, I've co-opted this term. These shirts' designs, colors, and simple statements are minimalist-vibe, maximum vogue.
