Selena Gomez has slowly become more comfortable using her voice.
Although Selena kept her political beliefs to herself for a while, she now often takes to social media to speak out about gun violence, reproduction rights, and more.
But before she felt confident using her platform, she often took to fashion instead. Below are three awesome times the singer made a big statement with a small accessory.
Her ‘1973’ Necklace
On Wednesday, Selena rocked a minimalist “1973” necklace by jewelry designer Sophie Ratner. The necklace is a direct reference to the year Roe v. Wade was passed and is a collaboration with organization Physicians for Reproductive Health.
The necklace is particularly poignant right now with conservative lawmakers around the country trying to pass aggressive abortion bans. (Read: What It’s Like Living In A State That Just Passed One Of The Country’s Most Restrictive Abortion Laws)
Selena actually took to Instagram last month to express her frustration over the bans and wrote,
“To see what is happening right now in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and several other states in our country is not only deeply upsetting but seems that it can’t possibly be real in 2019. It’s no one’s business what a woman chooses to do with her body. End of story.”
The necklace retails for $380 and 30% of the proceeds go straight to Physicians for Reproductive Health. Check out the necklace here.
Her ‘We The People’ Necklace
Back in August 2017, Selena got political with a dainty “We the People” gold necklace by Slow Factory.
Selena wore the necklace a few days after the horrible events of Charlottesville, Virginia.
At the time, Selena didn’t make any formal statements but rather let her necklace do the speaking for her.
Her ‘God Loves Nasty Women’ Jacket
The very first time Selena decided to get political in Trump’s America was way back in February 2017.
Selena rocked the jean jacket at an after-party for the Grammys that she attended with then-boyfriend The Weekend.
It was the first time Selena made any sort of political statement since Trump was elected. The maker of the jacket is still unknown.
