This weekend, thousands will flood the streets of West Hollywood to celebrate this year’s LA Pride Festival and Parade. As one giant party for love and acceptance, this three-day event is not to be missed.
But if you’ve never been, how are you supposed to know what to wear to one of these things? Whether you’re gay, lesbian, bisexual, bi-curious, pansexual, plain age-old straight-out or lost in the abyss of sex fluidity, we’ve got you embraced — at least with your outfit anyway.
Here are some tips to help you choose what to wear to this year’s LA Pride.
Go the literal route.
Nothing says “I am out and proud of it! ” quite like wearing a rainbow flag. It’s a tried-and-true look for a reason.
Go the political route.
Pull on yourpro-Hillary or pro-Bernie tee and BOOM, you’re ready to go. If you have a pro-Trump tee, please leave it in the wardrobe — or better yet, a flaming garbage bin.
Buy literally anything from American Apparel.
Sure, this may be the most “basic bitch” option, but what idiot suggested that was a bad thing? Feel well placed to strut in that unitardlike no one’s watching, BB.While this is the laziest, easiest alternative when you’re fresh out of outfit minds, it’s surely not the cheapest, so tread those lycra-filled aisles carefully.
Paint your face.
Think you have to limit the funto your clothes and accessories? Nope! Your torso is a canvas and you are the artist. Pretty meta, right?
Get creative with your hair.
If you’ve filled your Pinterest with pastel-haired babes but have been too afraid to try it for yourself , now’s the time to go all out. LA Pride isall about courage and expressing yourself, so why not make a statement with your hair? Of course, if you must turn back into a corporate pumpkin by Monday, you can always experiment with temporary dyes.
Not into fashion? Go nuts with your nails.
Treat yourself to a mani-pedi and get a little relaxation in before you dive headfirst into therainbow-painted chaos.
Rainbow fanny pack for the win!
Proud < em> and practical.
Dip your beard in glitter.
Now that you know you can, what’s stopping you ?! Sure, you might still be sneezing glisten a full time from now, but that’s all part of the fun.
Don’t forget about your kids!
Make sure your furbabiesdon’t feel left open this weekend and give them a snazzy rainbow bowtie, bandana or ribbon. Or if they’re the different types to rend their accessories to iotums, this rainbow leash alternative is always nice…
Wear whatever the fuck you want.
The important thing to recollect when get dressed up for LA Pride is to BE YOURSELF. That should be the golden rule any time you step out of the house, but particularly for Pride. It’s not just that you have permission to be 100 percentage yourself for three, party-filled periods — it’s their duties and responsibilities and an act of fearlessnes! So don’t skimp when it is necessary to winging your personal freak flagthis weekend — even if that means wearing New Balanceswith sand-blasted jeans. In the epithet of acceptance, we’ll allow it only this once.
