From the main event to a casual BBQ, we’ve got five stylish ways to show your Pride – and pay for it all later…

Whether you plan to be front and centre in the parade, or want to show your support in a more low-key way, Pride is the official prime-time for a rainbow outfit.

There’s no better excuse to bedeck yourself from head to toe in the iconic flag, particularly if you don’t have to pay for it straight away (blessings to Klarna, who make it possible to pay for your haul up to 30 days after you’ve bought it and save your bank balance in the process).

So, with freedom of celebration (and shopping) in mind, we’ve got five dream outfit ideas for however you choose to embrace Pride.

For the parade

Let’s face it – anything goes at the parade, and the maxim that ‘less is more’ definitely gets thrown out of the window.

In practical terms, comfort is pretty key.

You’ll be on your feet dancing all day, so opt for some luxey but comfy Superga kicks, and team with distressed shorts for a casual vibe (also: pockets).

Team with a bright crochet number to keep you cool and let everybody know exactly where you’re heading. 

For the beach

A day at a British beach is as unpredictable as Beyoncé’s album drops, so opt for a sundress like this in case it’s not quite paddling weather.

The sunhat has a twofold purpose here: A) protecting you from the sun and B) giving you an Italian screen-siren vibe.

Paired with chic Finery sandals and aviator shades, and you’re onto a winner. 

For evening drinks

An evening tipple, whether al fresco or tucked away in your favourite bar, calls for something a little slicker.

These wide-leg striped trousers are bound to turn heads, so add a simple white tee and chunky earrings for a nonchalant vibe.

Barely-there heels and a barely-there lip keep the look relaxed and fuss-free.

For a BBQ

As far as Stylist is concerned, a BBQ is the best summer social event. 

Veggie skewers? Check. Halloumi? Check. Pimm’s by the jug, lolling around with your friends on the lawn? Perfection. 

Dress for the occasion in this adorable Asos playsuit, and play around with a few accent accessories, such as these broken-heart stud earrings and embroidered clutch.

After all, if you can’t have fun with it, what’s the point?

For a work day 

This outfit has all the trappings of your dream work look. 

Chic cigarette trousers, low heels plus a Finery bag, all topped off with the best rainbow jumper this side of, er, the rainbow. 

The muted trousers and accessories keep it office-appropriate, so you can go loud and proud on top.
