Colours of the Rainbow: Fashion Inspiration for Pride Month Celebrations! [AD]
Pride 2023 is going to be happening pretty soon! So, you may be considering what type of outfit you are going to wear during the celebrations.
The sort of clothing you wear is going to be dependent on your style and whether or not you have something you want to represent during the event.
A lot of people tend to wear pride-related flags; however, it is entirely up to you what sort of outfit you want to wear. There are lots of outfit ideas to think about. So, think about your style carefully and consider what would suit you best.
Here are some Pride fashion ideas to get you started.
Pride t-shirts are a standard thing to wear when it comes to Pride month celebrations. They are the perfect thing if this is your first Pride event or if you have something important you want to express.
The shirts themselves do not need to be over the top. Instead, you could go with the standard Pride flag colours on your shirt or, if you want to express and celebrate your sexuality, you could go with your sexuality’s flag colours. You can then match this up with some painted flags on your face or jewellery. Once you’re done, you will be ready for Pride month!
Of course, you can go with Pride-related t-shirts that focus on more than just flags. You can have writing on your shirt about an important topic or movement that is close to your heart. For instance, you could write a slogan on your shirt about rights or charities. That way, when people look at your shirt, they will know what you stand for, or even find a new charity that they can support. It is a simple but effective way of spreading your message.
If you want to put a unique twist on your Pride outfit, but do not want to go entirely over the top, why not create an outfit that reflects the art of LGBTQ+ artists, like Keith Haring?
You could wear the art on a t-shirt, or if you want to take it to the next level, have the art printed all over your full outfit. You can then add jewels or sparkles to it to customise what you will wear.
Take your time looking over your clothes and planning out the type of art you are going to include. Essentially, your outfit will act as a homage to all of the wonderful art that the LGBTQ+ community has produced over the years.
Honestly, any type of event that is going to be in June (or July or August, depending on when your city celebrates) means you are going to have to prepare for the summer sun.
Outside of wearing your protective suntan lotion, and any sunglasses or hats, you need to wear an outfit that’s going to help you keep cool. You don’t want to wear anything too heavy or else you are going to overheat.
One of the Pride fashion trends that has been going around recently is crochet! So, why not look into a rainbow crochet outfit that could be light and easy to wear? You could wear a crochet body suit, shorts, top or light-weight bolero or cape.
You have probably seen body jewels when you go to concerts, raves, or gigs, but did you know that you can also wear them to Pride?
If your outfit is light weight, then you can put on rainbow glitter and rainbow body jewels around your body to glamourise yourself. These can go on your face, stomach, chest, arms or legs. Just keep in mind that if you are wearing them in the sun, they may leave a tan mark.
Of course, if you are going to Pride, it is very likely that you are going to see a lot of people wearing highly glamorised outfits.
This is why we would recommend that if you want to add a bit of sparkle to your Pride fashion, you can try and pick out something with rainbow sequins. These will make you look so sparkly and may even look colourful in the sunlight. They are perfect for Pride.
Are you ready for Pride?
Pride celebrations are always fun to take part in. You get to find like-minded people and feel accepted for who you are. At the end of the day, it is not a big deal what sort of outfit you wear. Go with what you are comfortable with.
