It’s almost that time of year again, pride season is almost upon us! Each year the celebrations get bigger and bigger, with cities all over the country adding their pride festivities to the national roster. As with any celebration, it’s all about looking the part and expressing yourself through your style, pride being the ultimate occasion to promote your personal identity. So for the third year running Boohoo have launched a pride collection to celebrate diversity will supporting some really important charities. The collection focuses on trend-led pieces that speak equally to style and personality – 10% of all profits will be divided between the LGBT Foundation and OutRight Action International. The collection includes over 100 pieces with looks for the people wanting to be bold and for those who want a more subtle approach – there really is something for everyone. The updated pride flag has been incorporated to more accurately represent those who make up the LGBTQ+ community. Check out the collection live on the site now, and find more information below on the amazing charities supported by this initiative.
