Fashion: 10 fabulous rainbow print pieces to celebrate Pride

Fashion and has gone somewhere over the rainbow this season. Katie Wright rounds up the best bright buys

Accessorize Rainbow Dress, £39

USUALLY, there's one colour that dominates each fashion season – but for spring-summer 2018 it's, well, all of them.

Seven-colour stripes are all over the high street, brightening up everything from swimwear to shoes and during Pride Festival – the event, which celebrates acceptance, starts on July 27 and continues until August 5 in Belfast this year – is the perfect time to wear them. (June was Pride Month, being the month when the Stonewall Riots that sparked the gay liberation movement took place in New York in 1969.)

Whether you rock all-over print or just a hint with accessories, this is feel-good fashion at its best and there are lots of cheap and cheerful bargains to be had.
