You've likely seen these designer t-shirts making the rounds on social media—one was even *gasp* recently embroiled in a scandal—and probably wondered what the fuss was all about. We initially doubted them, too, probably because they brought back our awkward early '00s adolescence; but as with all things ~fashion~, the more they filled up our feeds, the more they grew on us. The steep price tag though? Eh, not so much.
But if you, unlike us, are in the mood to blow off your savings on a cotton tee, we've listed several contenders to set your sights on.
