Protests and demonstrations are not only the time for punchy slogans, but also for eye-catching outfits and interesting wardrobe choices that send the right message and help you unite with the other marchers or just the opposite – make you stand out from the crowd. If you haven’t sorted out your outfit yet, here are some ideas along with a special march fashion gallery!
The easiest way to unify with the rest of people is to dress in the same colour. For the March for Europe, blue and yellow as the colours of the EU should be your first pick. A simple blue or yellow sweater or a T-shirt could perfectly become your uniform for the day. If you stick some stars on your “uniform”, great!
If blue or yellow are not your wardrobe colours, you can always use a face paint. If you cannot find a special face paint, try blue or golden eyeliner pencil or some crazy coloured lipstick. Stars and hearts are a great start, but if you feel really artistic, try to draw an EU flag! Feel brave enough? Why don’t you paint your hair with temporary hair dye that can be wash out after the march? Wigs could be an alternative, if colouring your hair is not an option.
If you are up for the challenge, get creative and make your own costume. Stand out and be the star! Be the star of Europe! Dress up like the mythical Europe, from whom the continent Europe was named? Try dressing up like Mr. Farage in an EU coloured outfit? What about a European superhero? The possibilities are endless.
While we would love to see a colourful march, do not forget to dress appropriately for the weather. We will keep you updated on the weather forecast, but keep in mind that it’s still early spring and it might be a little chilly and rainy. We know, spring looks a little bit different, if you come from the Northern Europe, but still keep yourself warm.
- Dress in layers and bring a waterproof jacket/coat (just in case). Don’t forget a light scarf. You can always get down to T-shirt if it gets nice and warm.
- Wear comfortable shoes that are made for walking – don’t forget we will be marching.
- It might be easier to wear clothing with pockets for necessities rather than carry around a bag
Dress to impress, but don’t forget to stay warm and be comfortable!
