Style Guide for Pride

Let’s take a closer look into this season’s hottest styles and how you can show your support for the LGBTQIA+ community during Pride in the City. We have curated your go-to fashion guide below, featuring pride-themed fashion to help you celebrate your individuality and personal style!

1. Express Yourself: Colour & Pattern

Pride is all about celebrating individuality and you can do just that with stylish outfits available in New Look, Mango, Hollister and more! Look out for Hollister’s inclusive Pride collection, ‘Unapologetically You’ and Hollister + GLSEN collaboration including a Pride Boxy Crop Heart Tee for £17.

Discover an array of trendy and affordable options that are perfect for Pride from New Look. Why not pair a crop-top or graphic tee with a colourful patterned skirt or flared trousers and make a statement this Summer.

Stand out from the crowd at the festival with a statement patterned dress from River Island or Next, or shop the unisex Underground Pride Charity T-Shirt from AllSaints (£55) which features the iconic colours of the Pride flag. Profits from the t-shirt are donated to Kaleidoscope – a UK-based international charity fighting for a future where LGBTI+ people everywhere can live free, safe and equal lives. Keep it classic and pair the AllSaints tee with high-quality pair of Levi’s jeans or denim shorts for a comfortable, stylish look.

Experiment with a mix of patterns and textures to create eye-catching look. Think sequins, metallics, florals and patterns – more is more!
