A few years back when I first met my husband, I fell instantly in love with his tattoos. He only had two — one of which was a peace sign on his forearm, the other a huge heart on his other arm. It spoke volumes about him as a person, and honestly, he lives and breathes what his tattoos symbolize.
So, in honor of International Peace Day this Saturday, September 21, and our hopes as both a couple and parents to live and lead a peaceful life in a peaceful world, I thought it would be great to bring you some peace sign-inspired clothes! I know that peace sign clothing usually comes with a stigma: that it’s just plain tacky. Flashes of tie-dye and sparkles are probably spinning through your head, but there are actually some cute and chic choices when it comes to rocking a peace sign, or any sign of peace for that matter. I’m happy to show you!
Here are 8 peace sign-inspired styles that won’t make you look tacky!
