So, ladies, it’s THE TIME of the year again – the pride month!
Celebrating and uplifting the LGBTQ voices, culture, and rights, be ready to join and bring your A-game to all kinds of pride parties, parades, and festivals!
Is that just me but I already hear Lady Gaga’s “Born this way” in the background music!
But here’s the thing, what to wear for pride month? For sure, the rainbow flag is the symbol of the LGBTQ community and this is the time for us to embrace rainbow and bright hues like crazy!
In this article, I’ve come up with 10 pride festival outfit ideas for plus-size queens.
From a casual rainbow, denim looks to an artsy retro ensemble, I’m sure you can pin down your final look for the pride parade!
1. WEAR A RAINBOW SHIRT FOR A CASUAL LOOK
For a minimalist style, a white rainbow shirt is more than enough to show your love for the LBGTQ community.
Whether you team the front knot top with denim jeans or bright orange straight-leg pants for a matchy look, they just look equally tasteful.
If you are new to the rainbow color department and not ready for anything too over the top, a versatile rainbow shirt is always a good place to start!
Simple and cute.
The truth is, we are all perfect imperfections.
You want to learn these outfit hacks ONLY if you feel like it but are not pressured by others. Remember, we never have the need to “fix” our bodies!
You don’t have to be pretty like HER, you can be pretty like YOU.
And believe it or not, there’s still NOT ENOUGH plus-size content around Pinterest and other places on the internet …at all.
So ladies, before reading the tips, please help pin the pin below & support plus-size ladies ♥!
2. LOOK PUT-TOGETHER WITH CO-ORD SET
If you want to look parade-ready with minimal effort, a rainbow co-ord set is here for you.
Whether you choose an all-over rainbow set or the flared pants with colorful stripes, you just look irresistibly ravishing.
Together with bright-tone heels and boho sunglasses, this is how you look stylish without giving it so much of a thought!
Seriously, the rainbow tube bra and high waist flared pants set are absolutely refreshing.
Just shut up and take my money!

3. THROW ON A RAINBOW BLAZER FOR PRIDE
If the weather is more on the chilly side, I’ll urge you to wear a rainbow blazer set as that just boost the aesthetic tenfold.
To handle this bold print, always team a plain black top for a nice balance.
And if you want to finish the look with a dash of boss lady vibes, sleek pointy heels can never go wrong to elongate your legs and bring out the fierce vibes at the same time.
As for the high street ladies out there, a denim jacket can come in handy.
Embellished with the rainbow tape, the “denim x denim” combo just can’t look any cuter as a daily look for pride month!
“Come out, come out, wherever you are!”
4. OPT FOR PASTEL RAINBOW SET FOR A GIRLY LOOK
If you are not a fan of bright rainbow hues, perhaps it’s time to embrace the pastel version for a soft girl look.
Team the pastel rainbow sweater with a pink pleated skirt and Mary Jane shoes, this is how you stand out from the rainbow crowd as a breath of fresh air!
So yes ladies, you can actually look all soft and dreamy during the pride month!
I don’t know about you but a pastel rainbow poncho is a true mood booster for me!
You are straight fire. Well, minus the “straight” part.
5. GO FOR AN ARTSY RAINBOW CROCHET LOOK
If you never thought of wearing a crochet dress for pride, well, now you know!
As a perfect mix of artsy vibes, sustainable fashion, and creativity, it’s not hard to understand why crochet is trending right now.
If a rainbow shirt can’t satisfy your inner diva anymore, try a rainbow crochet top to steal the show!
In case you can’t find a plus-size crochet dress from the big brands, feel free to find one from Etsy for a tailor-made one! They are the real deal.
If you are a crafty girl, feel free to crochet everything. From rainbow hats to earrings, this is such a fun little project to do with your girl pals during pride month!
By the way, if you decide to wear a crochet dress, be mentally prepared to receive compliments for the whole day!
I’m not even exaggerating.
The bravest thing you can be is yourself.
6. DRESS LIKE A PLUS SIZE BAE IN A RAINBOW DRESS
If you want a feminine and billowy silhouette, an illuminated rainbow chiffon maxi dress is perfect for you.
Different from the typical rainbow hard stripe lines, this rainbow dress gives a soft blend for the look and makes it wearable all year round.
Other than wearing this darling for a pride parade, you can always wear it for vacation and hot summer days.
So if you want a versatile piece, always pay attention to the prints!
Love is too beautiful to be hidden in the closet.
7. DO A COUPLE OF MATCHING LOOKS FOR PRIDE FESTIVALS
If you are looking for some cute couple matching ideas for the pride festival, the denim overall can be a lovely choice.
Whether you choose to tie-dye the outfits or add rainbow stripes to the overalls, it just showcases your creative and funky side!
Finish off the look with matchy socks and shoes, this couple’s look is simply unbeatable.
Gender is not sane. It’s not sane to call a rainbow black and white.
7. GO FOR A SUBTLE LOOK FOR AN EXTRA POP
If this is your first time joining a pride party and you are not ready to go hardcore, no worries as you can always start with something subtle!
So yes, you don’t have to give up your all-black ensemble. I’m pretty sure the black dress makes your rainbow ribbon looks more pop-up!
From rainbow headbands to necklaces to bags, there is always a way for you to instill a dash of rainbow vibes into your daily look.
You can basically choose everything but when it comes to the rainbow thigh-high socks, I really doubt that.
The eye-catching color stripes will thicken our legs visually so that’s a No-no for plus-size girls.

8. EMBRACE YOUR CURVES IN RAINBOW SWIMSUIT
Wondering what to wear for a poolside party on pride month? Well, you guessed it, rainbow swimsuit!
Team it with a sheer poncho and retro jelly shoes, this is how you go full glam on the beach this summer!
Well, be ready for some jealous eyes as you will for sure be under the spotlight!
I don’t want there to be gay marriage.
I just want there to be happy marriage and lasting marriage and healthy marriage.
And I look forward to a day when we don’t have to talk about it anymore.
9. SPICE UP THE PRIDE OUTFIT WITH RETRO FLARES
Pride festival is all about embracing your true self and being wild.
That said, if you miss the 80s disco night vibes, don’t hesitate to rock a sequin rainbow jumpsuit with wonder and whimsy.
Yes, that’s extravagant but who cares?
Or else, team the white cropped top with flared rainbow stripe pants will do the trick too!
So ladies, if you want to unlock some new styles, consider the retro looks to level up your fashion game!
This is so random… BUT
hey ladies, why not quickly do an affirmation and feel instantly better?
This new year, I’m trying not only to share fashion tips but come up with ways to instill body positivity in all women who are reading my articles – aka YOU!
Instead of just reading it, say it loud or murmur the quotes (if you are in public) to maximize the effect.
Ready? Here we go.
I love my body. She is my forever home and sanctuary.
Sassy isn’t a shape, it’s an attitude.
Work out because I love my body – not because I hate it.
I can love myself and change my body at the same time. No guilt about that.
It is completely normal to have tummy rolls. I come to realize that social media isn’t showing the reality… at all.
My happiest moments in life had nothing to do with the way my body looked.
I don’t have to be pretty like her, I can be pretty like …ME.
I AM perfect imperfection.
What are your thoughts on that? I hope that makes you feel better (as you deserved).
Please help me pass the body positivity message in your community. #womenhelpwomen

10. GO FOR COMFY FUNKY RAINBOW SHOES
Last but not least, the footwear!

If you want to make a statement, go for rainbow platform sandals. (You rock girls!)
