Style Tips

Colour blocking, liquid brights, European lengths- the new, new season swimwear is less basic, more brash. Look for bolder trunks that hit above the knee (the three inch rule generally works), and in patterns that call immediate attention to toned physiques- power plaids, daring stripes and vivid hues. Add rugged accessories (beads, straightforward tees, smooth sunnies) to go effortlessly from surf to shore and revel in the dog days of summer.

How To Dress For Pride

June 25, 2013

With Toronto Pride right around the corner we’ve been getting a ton of messages asking for style tips on how to dress for the occasion. From first time goers to repeat vetrans, dressing up for Pride is much like any other event, it starts with your personality. It’s no secret that outfits only look their best when matched with the right personality. Having said that there are some key bits of information you may want to consider when picking your Pride outfit.

  1. You’ll be outdoors most of the day. So pick an outfit that is comfortable and made of fabrics that breath like cottons and linens.
  2. Whether you’re watching the parade or just hitting the party scene know that you’re going to be on your feet for several hours. As such, pick appropriate footwear.
  3. Pride is all about colour so by all means brighten it up. Splashes of colour are always a good idea.
  4. If you didn’t know we’re in the month of June, which means its going to be HOT. So, avoid wearing too many layers. K.I.S.S (Keep it simple sailor).
With these rules in mind we’ve put together some great looks that will have you feeling and looking your best this Pride weekend!

Just like shorts, swim shorts have gone from knee-length and baggy to above the knee and fitted. Throw out your old board shorts and get into the new swim shorts. Parke and Ronen make great shorts in lots of colours and prints. They may be shorter than you’re used to, but women love seeing some leg as much as you do!
