June is LGBT Pride month—let’s celebrate! To show our support, we’ve put together six monochrome outfits each representing a color on the rainbow flag. Wonder how it all began? The flag originated in 1970s San Francisco when artist Gilbert Baker was tasked by legendary activist Harvey Milk to come up with a symbol for gay pride. Gilbert dyed the panels by hand, and the first flag spread its wings in 1978 at the “Gay Freedom Day” parade. From there, it’s become a colorful badge of LGBT identity and solidarity around the world. Scroll to see our monochromatic ensembles and pick your favorite hue. Don’t forget—a rainbow pin adds the final touch.
Rock the color of love with a leather mini and classic sweater. Straightforward accessories enhance without overcomplicating.
Make a statement with this bold Victoria Beckham dress. And a bag with a flirty tassel? A thousand times yes.
Yellow? Never mellow. Mix up different shades and work around a cool graphic pattern.
Go green with full-on khaki. Dress it up with a pair of sky-high heeled boots.
We’re so into baby blues with a 90’s twist—a simple tank and cuffed denim go the distance with the right accessories.
Show ‘em who’s boss with a purple power suit. Pearly baubles and timeless d’Orsay pumps add a little oomph to this no-nonsense ensemble.
