PRIDE month is here and we’ve asked 5 fashion bloggers how to style and dress in the right outfit to make you shine bright while parading round and having crazy amounts of fun.
1. “The best outfit is something you feel 100% confident in” @mrlukechristian
For Luke Christian, UK-based grooming and lifestyle blogger (mrlukechristian.com), the best Pride outfit is something you feel confident in. “For me, the best outfit for Pride is something you feel 100% confident in because when you feel confident in it, you automatically become the best version of yourself and when you radiate confidence, good vibes and good things will happen!”
2. “Don’t feel like you need to try and fit in by wearing loud clothing” @aidangardner
“Pride is all about being unapologetically your authentic self”, says Aidan Gardner, fashion and lifestyle blogger from Cumbria (allaboutaidan.com) “It’s about bright, in your face colours. It’s about not giving a crap and having fun! And this should be reflected in your outfit choice to any pride event. But don’t feel like you need to try and fit in by wearing loud clothing when all you want to where is a black shirt and skinny jeans; there is no set dress code.”
“Personally, my outfit will aim towards wearing plain and neutral colours, with added pops of colourful accessories, such as a rainbow man bag, and/or two different coloured shoes on each foot, and some unmissable stand-out jewellery. Because that’s my personal style!”
3. “You should include colours, something vibrant…be creative!” @pablohp31
Spanish blogger Pablo Heras Palacio (mrtrainers-thelifeofpablo.com) has no doubt about the best Pride outfit. “Pride is a celebration, a time to be proud of who you are, a time to demonstrate who we are as a group and to show that love has no discrimination and knows no boundaries. We celebrate our rights, our freedom and our achievements, for these reasons I believe that during pride, you should wear something that makes you feel special, something that identifies yourself and something that shows the rest that you are proud no matter what people think of you.”
“As this is a celebration, it definitely includes colours, something vibrant and bold or the most creative outfit that you can think off, everything is valid as everyone is welcoming without any fear of judgement.”
4. “The best outfit is something that’s individual to you” @_jacksjournal
For Jack Lawrence, London-based lifestyle blogger (jacksjournal.co.uk), Pride is all about individuality. “For me, the best outfit to wear this year at Pride events is something that’s individual and unique to you! After all, that’s what life is all about and we should celebrate it with love that has no limits.”
5. “This year I want to try an overall with a rainbow bandana” @mursalison
According to New York-based fashion and travel blogger Murs Alison (mursalison.com), “the best outfit for Pride is not necessarily the most skin showing or most fun looking shirts, it’s the outfit that we feel truly expresses who we are as a person.”
“There are so many days in the year that we are kind of obligated to wear certain outfit to work or various other places, this is the day to actually wear whatever we think represents “US.” Last year, I wore a rainbow tank top with denim shorts and high top sneakers. This year I want to try an overall with a rainbow bandana and old school vans.”
