What to Wear: Our Take on Pride Fashion

Marking 50 years since the Stonewall Riots, Pride month ran throughout June, culminating with the Pride Jubilee in London last weekend. Pride is a cause for celebration, whilst raising awareness of issues within the LGBTQ+ community. Parades and street parties are a huge factor of Pride celebrations with many partakers taking their outfits to the next level – bright colours, glitter and sequins are often seen at pride events – the more the better!

 

Pride participants can be seen wearing colours of the rainbow flag – a symbol of the LGBTQ+ movement. The colours each have a different representation: red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, blue for harmony, and violet for spirit. We have picked out our favourite pride items inspired by the rainbow flag below for you to wear for your own celebrations in support of the movement:
