PRIDE SHOES FOR THE FASHION SHOW
Humans have long walked barefoot. This habit made the sole of the foot strong, much more than today. Most of us are no longer used to walking outside without our precious shoes. Even in the countryside, few adventurers dare to walk barefoot because of our fragile feet. The basic westerner has become very fearful: although it is more likely that nothing will happen to him and that if something did happen it would not be very serious, when in doubt, he prefers to wear shoes or flip-flops. Basically, he is afraid of everything:
- to walk on a bee
- to sprain his ankle
- to walk on the pebbles of the driveway of the family home
- to step on the lost jewel of granny
- to step on a neighbor's child's toy
- to take a knee from the neighbor who hates bare feet
- to walk on pebbles
- to crush an egg of a female owl
- to get lice
And it's a pity, because walking barefoot in the grass, that's life. But then, with hindsight, we were all dying at 30, so maybe our western world is not so bad after all...
In summary: we like to wear shoes because they protect our feet. They also allow us to walk comfortably on asphalt streets during a (random) Pride march. So the first thing to keep in mind when thinking about what to wear to Gay Pride is that walking barefoot in the city can hurt a little. Incredible, isn't it?
RAINBOW SOCKS, OR NOT
Socks are generally used for 3 main reasons:
Indeed, nothing better than a good old pair of socks to protect the skin of your feet from friction with your shoes. Because blisters are not fun... And if you want to adapt your style to the Gay Pride, just get some with the LGBT flag drawn on it. If you don't want to spend a dime, then any multicolored pair will do! This cat is a perfect example of the "pride socks" style:
A STOCKING FOR THE LOWER BODY
Yes, a body top is usually better worn as a body top than as pants. Skirts, dresses, shorts, pants, you can wear everything. First and foremost, think about being comfortable: get ready to walk, jump, dance. Also take into consideration the temperature and the presence or absence of precipitation. But then again, in June, it rarely hails. In short: flood the streets with your incredible flow rather than flooding your pants with sweat that will stick to you all day.
A TOP FOR THE UPPER BODY... OR NOT
Again, be careful with the weather, it would be stupid to wear a down jacket in the sun in June... Typical ways to dress for Gay Pride are wearing a classic summer top, wearing an LGBT flag on your back or even no top at all. You can also wear LGBT t-shirts that are tailored to either male or female body types. For those who want to dress like every day, wearing a lightweight sports shirt is a great choice to say the least for the physical activity you will be doing throughout the day.
A PRIDE FLAG FOR EVERYONE
Because no pride is made if we do not have the flag that best represents us. It is the day when we proudly wave our colors in front of everyone!
IN SHORT : HOW TO DRESS FOR THE PRIDE
As you can see, there are no mandatory clothes or colors. The movement is based on values such as tolerance and acceptance of others, so nothing could be more logical. If you had one piece of advice to remember, it would be this one: let go, be daring, don't take yourself too seriously.
