How To Outfit Your Gay Pride Hangover
Jun 24, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
If you're reading this, and you're in NY, I'd place a hefty wager on you being severely hungover on Monday. The Gay Pride Parade is this Sunday, and girl, I know you're going hard. Pink drinks all day with a flask of Jack on the hip, and you're marching proud. So, yes, Monday will be a struggle, not unlike that of convincing politicians to let you love in holy matrimony. But as with most things in life, it will be easier if you look good in the process. Whether you're still having a gay ol' time, or you feel that another rainbow will induce vomiting, here's a look that will coddle your hangover. Girls and gays, this look swings both ways.
Shield your eyes kids with a massive sunglass:
Still Here & Queer? Yellow frames and purple lenses are the answer. Squint Topshop
Over the rainbow? Raise a brow at the thought of seeing purple so soon in Prada.
Your hair is a wreck and your face has weathered a GLAAD storm. A dramatic hat will hide that:
Still Here & Queer? Missoni has your colorful needs covered.
Over the Rainbow? A black hat is subtle... San Deigo
Your body wants something like sweatpants, but your heart, mind, soul, and the judgement of others will never allow it. The alternative is a skirt, flowing like the coconut water you'll be guzzling.
Still Here & Queer? Alice + Olivia must have made this skirt with Gay Pride in mind. And its subsequent hangover.
Over the Rainbow? Your Sunday antics are right out of ancient Greece. Commemorate with Opening Ceremony's long grecian skirt.
Give yourself a hug in the softest shirt in the world.
Still Here & Queer? Purple dyed and hand-deconstructed, much like your hair in college. Raquel Allegra
Over the Rainbow? Just throw on an asymmetrical T by Alexander Wang tank and call it a day.
You stomped for miles all over the damn town shouting your love of yourself and your same sex lovers around the world in a 6 inch heel. You need a flat.
Still Here & Queer? Make that flat a flatform. Ego and Greed
Over the Rainbow? Let your feet breathe in non-confining sneaker, a proper mandal. Ksubi Artimus
