Styling your look for Pride goes beyond just rainbows or color schemes for how you identify. There are plenty of streetwear fashion looks to get inspired by. If you’re getting ready to celebrate Pride this year, here’s our list of the best streetwear style ideas.
Before we dive into streetwear tips for Pride 2022, let’s rewind and remember what Pride is all about. Every time the month of June rolls around each year, we take this time to celebrate love and identity publicly and proudly in all its forms as part of the LGBTQ+ community. It all started in June 1969 with the Stonewall uprising, which escalated the fight for LGBTQ+ rights in our country.
Whether you’re attending a Pride parade in your hometown or looking at virtual events from the comfort of your home, there are plenty of ways to celebrate Pride in style. If you’re looking to dress to impress, check out our special occasion dresses.
Oversized clothing works well on a variety of body types. You don’t need a particular budget or even a set style to rock oversized shirts and tunic sweatshirts. Loose and baggy clothing is a trendy look for 2022. Whether you’re tall, petite, or curvy, you’ll look like an off-duty model. This trend is relevant. It’s also ridiculously comfortable. Try any of our men’s loungewear for comfort and style.
Make your outfit pop with rainbow sneakers and women’s joggers. You can go for colors like deep pink, lavender, and dark blue if you’re bisexual, for example. Take a look at different flags depending on how you identify to get inspired by sneakers with that color palette. When choosing streetwear sneakers for this year, go for chunky sneakers, platforms, and high tops. Pair them with jeans, tank tops, and slick hair for that laid-back look. Bold sneakers also pair well with oversized colors regardless of gender.
Let’s go back to basics by keeping it casual. Think boyfriend jeans and cropped tees. Oversized clothing makes an appearance again with oversized blazers. Here’s how to make this streetwear blend work. Pair large hoodies and printed tees with dark denim. Give your look some attitude with a faux leather coat. Mixing baggy jeans and graphic prints is a classic nod to original streetwear looks. To give it a Pride twist, include sparkles, glitter, and rainbow color palettes.
Would you wear a designer trench with those 1990s dad sneakers? How about a sparkly A-line dress with street-style sneakers? Go for a double-breasted pocketed blazer with tennis shoes. To make your outfit pop with a hint of something outrageous, wear casual wear and add on one standout piece like a luxury handbag or tech sneakers. When in doubt, the perfect pair of leggings blend well with just about everything else in your wardrobe.
It’s subtle. It’s sleek. Ombre is perfect for layering. Strut your stuff in an ombre-printed blazer. You can have a matching top and trousers. Keep it looking smooth with a pair of white strappy heels and a gold necklace. Try an ombre tunic or ombre button-down in a pretty pastel rainbow palette. Pair it with white palazzo pants and platform sandals.
If you’re going to be outside during the hot month of June, you don’t want to overheat. Especially if you’re participating in a Pride parade. Wear a strapless tie-dye top with jean shorts or a mini skirt. If it’s going to be a bit cool outside, swap the shorts and skirts for jeans or sweats instead.
Give your childhood overalls a grownup upgrade with a coverall. Add on some colorful statement jewelry and sneakers. Get a coverall in a bold color to celebrate the start of summer.
Turn heads with a racerback unisuit. Go for thoughtful details like a black unisuit with rainbow stripes on the side. This look easily transitions from a parade to the beach. If you love this look, browse our one-piece bathing suits.
Make a maximum impact with a maxi dress. Go for a beautiful ombre rainbow dress. You’ll be feeling cool and looking great all at the same time. Why not take a dip after a parade and wear a swimsuit underneath your maxi dress? You can head directly from the parade to the beach for an after-party with this look. For a bit more flair, go for our fit-and-flare dresses.
Last but certainly not least, it’s time to get futuristic. For functional yet avant-garde looks, we’re talking techwear for streetwear for Pride 2022. Look at track tops and technical dresses in black. Think combat boots and fringe. Take a look at techwear and high street fashionwear with innovative materials and smart tailoring.
With all of those ideas in mind, it’s clear to see that streetwear isn’t just for niche brands worn by skaters and techwear lovers. Streetwear styles impact the entire fashion industry, and you’ll be a part of that impact when you celebrate Pride this year.
