There’s no doubt about it: 2019 is a banner year for LGBTQI visibility in America. Just look at the queer stars and narratives celebrated in mainstream media, and openly gay politicians running for office. There’s no better time to commemorate those who’ve come before us—like those who struggled valiantly for LGBTQI rights at the Stonewall uprising half a century ago—while also working together towards a more progressive future.

Also celebrating a 50-year anniversary this summer is the annual Chicago Pride Parade (Sunday June 30), which caps off a busy month-long lineup of events. Highlights include a kick-off party in Boystown, the beloved Dyke March, and the outdoor Back Lot Bash. If you’re in need of an outfit for Pride (you surely are!), look no further than H&M’s Pride Capsule Collection, showcasing summer-friendly pieces that celebrate LGBTQI pride while also letting you express your own individuality.

As an official World Pride sponsor, H&M is donating ten percent of sales proceeds—a minimum commitment of $300,000—to the United Nations’ Free & Equal Campaign. The company has a long history of spotlighting LGBTQI artists and creatives such as actress Laverne Cox and actor and comedian Rickey Thompson. Their aim for this year’s collection: to let you dress like your unapologetic, fun, and fearless self.  

Ready to find your Pride outfit? From outdoor concert-ready crop tops and short shorts to an all-rainbow ensemble, here are five amazing looks for celebrating Chicago Pride Fest 2019.

Calling all femmes (and really anyone who wants to rock a crop top). What better way to embrace the real spirit of Pride than with a simple but assertive statement piece that says “Stay True, Stay You” right across the front? Pair the top with some reliable mom jeans for structure, and cap it off with some edgy cat-eye sunglasses and crisp white sneakers for a put-together yet festive outdoor look.
