Inside: 27 pride outfit ideas for everyone celebrating Pride this year. Or to wear anytime. Pride is constant!
Pride Month is a time to celebrate and honor the LGBTQ+ community and their contributions to society. The month of June was chosen to commemorate the Stonewall riots of 1969, which marked a turning point in the LGBTQ+ rights movement.
During Pride Month, cities around the world host parades, festivals, and other events to show support for the LGBTQ+ community and raise awareness about issues affecting them. And if you’re planning to attend one of these events, it’s the best time to break out an outfit that screams how proud you are of WHO you are, and pride for those around you. These events are a way for people to come together and celebrate the diversity and resilience of the LGBTQ+ community. So celebrate the diversity with an incredible pride outfit.
If you need help choosing the right fit for you, I’m here to help. Let’s figure out the best outfit for you to rock your pride in this year.
What You Should Wear For Pride
Pride parades are a time to celebrate diversity and show support for the LGBTQ+ community. When it comes to dressing for the occasion, there are a few things to keep in mind.
First and foremost, it’s important to remember that Pride is a celebration of self-expression. This means that there are no hard and fast rules about what you should wear. That being said, there are a few things to keep in mind to make sure you feel comfortable and show your support, and some cute ideas if you need some inspiration.
Bright and bold colors are a staple at Pride parades. Think rainbow stripes, bright pink, and neon green. These colors are often associated with the LGBTQ+ community and can be a great way to show your support. The most common colorway that you’re going to see is rainbows of course, so when all else fails, all colors together are perfect.
Another way to show your support is to wear clothing with pro-LGBTQ+ messages or symbols. For example, a shirt with the pride flag or a message of love and acceptance can be a great way to show your support. Pairing it with a fun pair of pants or even painting it on your jeans is always a staple for parades and rallies.
It’s also important to consider comfort when dressing for a Pride parade. These events are usually long and involve a lot of walking and standing, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes and clothes that allow for easy movement
Finally, it’s important to remember that everyone is welcome at Pride. This means that there is no “right” way to dress for the event. Whether you choose to wear a rainbow tutu or a simple t-shirt, the most important thing is that you feel comfortable and able to show your support. We’re all here for the same reason, so any support is beautiful!
Overall, when it comes to dressing for a pride parade, the most important thing is to be true to yourself and express your support and love for the LGBTQ+ community. Wear what makes you feel confident and comfortable, and don’t be afraid to show your true colors.
DIY Pride Projects
Not all pride outfits need to be perfect little sets that you found online that have the perfect rainbow color scheme to it. You can totally DIY or otherwise just put your DIY projects to use with these DIY pride project outfit ideas.
There are so many ways that you can go with this, but let’s start with the details like accessorizing.
The hot hair style these days is braids. And there are some really fun ways to incorporate pride details into them. Adding a ribbon into the braided section will add some color, and if you want to make it a rainbow ribbon then you’ve got the spirit really going for you!
Denim pieces are great for DIY projects, whether you found them at the thrift or otherwise. You can paint a flag on a pair of shorts or on the back of a denim jacket. I personally love the idea of this project on white denim, really making the colors pop even more! But who doesn’t have an extra pair of blue denim lying around, waiting to be DIYed?!
Tassels of ribbons are another great way to add some color and rainbows to your denim. Either along the back of the jacket, or the pockets of your jeans, this is a perfect way to create a beautiful wave of color on your outfit.
Tie dye and painted clothing are always a really cool way to upcycle something that you want to wear for pride. Tie dye some white denim or a white tee shirt or tee dress to rock out at the parade. Get your friends together and make some that match– because no tie dye matches exactly, so it’s just a really fun way to do something easy and unique to you. Not to mention it’s a fun project to take on especially if you do it with friends!
Painting your clothes in any way is always a hit and you’re going to love the outcome every time.
DIY is a great way to come up with a great outfit for pride, so whatever your vibe is that you’re leaning towards, I totally recommend these projects for your pride outfit ideas.
School Pride Outfits
With pride being in June, you don’t necessarily have to worry about what to wear to school during pride month, but if you want to show your pride during the school year anyway, there are some great options.
Going to school might be a little different when you really want to show your pride. If your dress codes require a little bit more of a subdued wardrobe, there definitely are still ways that you can show off your pride while being within the dress code. While you want to be as loud and proud as possible (that’s like the whole point), it won’t help anything to be sent home to change.
Some ideas that respect dress codes are tee shirts with pride statements on them, or a top that has rainbows printed on. You may not be able to rock the rainbow crochet top like you would to a parade, but tees are perfect substitutes.
Adding little details like rainbow clips in your hair and socks to your outfit are the perfect ways to be subtle too. Show your pride, and do so respectfully to dress codes.
