Kelly Clarkson isn’t necessarily known for her fashion, but it was her shirt — not her singing — that caught our attention last night. Kelly stepped out in Nashville wearing a D.A.R.E. t-shirt, which makes the “American Idol” winner an even bigger rock star in our book.

If you didn’t have the chance to experience a D.A.R.E. program (short for Drug Abuse Resistance Education), we’ll break it down for you. D.A.R.E. is all about youth being free from the influence of drugs and violence. The program lasts ten weeks and educates students on the dangers of using illegal substances. D.A.R.E., usually taught by a police officer, is currently taught in “75 percent of our nation’s school districts and in more than 43 countries around the world.”

While you should definitely “Just Say No” to drug use and violence, here are three D.A.R.E. products you should say “Hell Yeah!” to immediately. It’s time to wear your drug-free status loud and proud, right?!


+ T-Shirt & Tank Top

Why not take Kelly’s lead and rock a D.A.R.E. tee of your own?! Even the official D.A.R.E. site is a fan of these retro neon t-shirts. For those “less is more” folks, there’s this tank top.

+ Fanny Pack

If you’re heading to the beach or on vacation during spring break, you might want to grab this fanny pack while you can! It’ll promote your drug-free lifestyle and give you a cool, easy way to carry your cellphone and money.

+ Technicolor Cap

If you’re a little less adventurous in your fashion choices, check out this D.A.R.E. cap. Wear it sideways, backwards, whateva — you’re cool regardless just for broadcasting your drug-free stance to the world.
