Are you ready for pride?! Here at DGY, we’re all so ready to go party! Whether you’re marching in a parade, watching the parade, joining a big dance party, or celebrating quietly at home, we have made a pride style guide to help you come up with a few (c’mon, we love a good outfit change!) amazing outfits to help you express yourself
Before you choose your outfit, remember:
- It’s June - in most places, it’s going to be extremely hot! Avoid anything stifling and make sure you bring sunscreen and hydrate! The night before and right before you leave your house, chug some electrolytes and bring some water with you!
- Most places will be packed - wear a mask and have a meet-up area with your group. Keep an eye on the people around you in case anyone gets overheated or lost!
- You’re gonna be boogying or marching - ya gotta be comfy! Don’t make yourself uncomfortable because of your outfit!
Sari Wrap Skirt
These skirts are perfect party wear! They’re also cooling and temperature regulating because they’re made from reclaimed and recycled sari silk material! You can wear them as skits, tops, shawls, dresses and more! This is the king of color, adjustability, and versatility.
Groovy Festival Dress
How can we not love this dress? This one-of-a-kind piece has a crochet knit top with the skirt of the dress made from recycled sari fabric, giving it a unique look that is sure to turn heads. It’s also backless to give you a little bit of relief from the heat!
Heather Bolero Vest
Personally, I have one of these vests for one of my own pride outfits this year! The sleeveless design is made from a durable woven fabric, and features a striped pattern with fringed hem. The colors are amazing and you can pair your vest with a cute tank to look cool and cute!
Sedona Patchwork Skirt
These skirts are killer for parties and parades! Their smocked elastic waistband allows for this skirt to be worn around the hips or around the chest to make a one-of-a-kind dress! Made from reclaimed sari fabrics, these skirts are the perfect mix of boho chic, breathable elegance, and slow fashion. They’re colorful and so incredibly comfortable.
Amara Short Recycled Sari Duster
100% reclaimed traditional sari material sourced in India, just like our sari wrap skirts. Each piece of fabric has been on a journey of its own! They are handmade at our partnered co-ops. Since these dusters are made out of reclaimed sari silk, it can help keep you cool in the summer heat!
Reclaimed Sari Medley Scarf
I love wearing this scarf as a hair wrap and a top! They’re handmade with 7 strips of bright sari material, making each one of these scarves a unique mystery! If you’re going for an eclectic-boho vibe for your pride outfit, this scarf would be the perfect addition.
Hi everyone, it's kallie from darn good yarn and today i am showing you five ways to wear our reclaimed medley sari scarves. Okay, so first up you guessed it we are wearing the sari scarf as a scarf. There's many ways to wear a scarf, you can put it over your shoulders, wrap it over your neck, double wrap it over your neck- ooh pretty!
Moving on to style number two: hair accessories. Okay so to start off i'm just folding the scarf in half the long way to make it a little thinner and making myself a blindfold oh just kidding! I'm just actually making two knots behind my head, pushing it up and boom you have yourself a cute little patchwork bandana. Oh how cute!
Next I am wrapping the scarf underneath my hair, putting my hair over it, and then pulling up the fabric and tying a knot at the top and then look how satisfying that is! Pulling it tight so it lays in my ponytail. You might want to double knot it so it doesn't slip out or you can always loop it around an elastic that works too.
Alright style number three, not that style number three! We are going with a shawl- oh look how pretty that looks- oh my gosh I need to get over myself. All right, so you can of course just drape it over your shoulders like that, but I'm gonna show you a trick. If you double knot the two ends of the scarf around your wrist like this - look, you can now dance the night away and not worry about your shawl falling off your shoulders!
So style number four, we have a cute little sarong wrap to wear to the beach and look at that I changed up the color of the scarf just to show you all the diversity of colors and patterns that we have!
And for the last look I am just taking the scarf, I fold it in half again like for the hair accessories, and I have wrapped it around my top area. And I am making a double knot in the back to make a cute little bandeau top. I'm just gonna shortly show you one more. What I did was I wrapped the scarf around my back, did a little twist in the front, and tied it around the back of my neck and it makes a cute little top!
Thank you all for watching I'll be here all week
The Kameela Knot Headband
The Kameela is a comfortable, stylish, and versatile headband that's great for adding a pop of color atop your head! These are all handmade out of reclaimed materials, which means that no two headbands are exactly alike. The elastic band allows the headband to keep up with any style, so you don’t have to worry about it slipping off if you decide to go for that death drop.
Reusable Furoshiki Gift Wrapping 5 Pack
I know this sounds really weird -gift wrap? But like most things on our site - this gift wrapping has multiple uses! Use our furoshiki wrap as a belt, a headband, a top, or a scarf- there’s tons of options! They’re incredibly lightweight, so they’re easy to pack if you’re traveling for pride!

DIY Upcycled Fringe Shorts
Get ready for summer and festival season with these DIY Upcycled Jean Shorts! With simple crochet techniques, you can add fun stitching and tassels to the bottoms of shorts, skirts, or pants. Use an old, worn in pair of shorts, or pick some up jeans at your local thrift shop! I absolutely adore my shorts that I made with my old white jean shorts and our rainbow yarn!
