How to show your support this Wear It Purple Day
Published 04 August
On Friday 26 August, join Eastland as we stand in solidarity with the youth LGBTIQA+ community by wearing purple for Wear It Purple Day.

If you’re keen to show your ally-ship this Wear It Purple Day, why not do it in style? To help you choose your own pop of purple, we’ve pulled together our favourite purple-hued picks from throughout Eastland
 

What is Wear It Purple Day?

Wear It Purple is a student-led, not-for-profit organisation that strives to foster supportive, safe, empowering, and inclusive environments for youth in the LGBTIQA+ community. The initiative was established in 2010 in response to the distressing reports of young LGBTIQA+ people taking their own lives due to bullying and harassment. Wear It Purple aims to show people that no one should be discriminated against because of their gender and sexual identity. 

Still Me, Still Human

This year’s theme is ‘Still Me, Still Human’—a message that emphasises the importance of remembering what we truly are, human. The LGBTIQA+ community form the fabric of our community—including our retail staff, our hospitality workers, our centre management, and our local customers. ‘Still Me, Still Human’ serves to remind all of us that the world is changing to embrace everyone, no matter how they identify, while seeking to remove the stigmas surrounding the LGBTIQA+ community.

 

So, how can you be an ally?

Ready to become an ally and proudly wear purple? We’ve pulled together some of our top picks from Eastland, so you can do it in style. 

A monochromatic look is always stylish and chic. To achieve this look, head to Decjuba, Country Road and Forever New to shop their range of purple-hued pieces. The more purple the better, right?!

If you’re ready to make a real statement, why not go bold? Colour-blocking is on the rise and now is the time to have some fun by pairing purple pieces with other splashes of colour. Draw inspiration from Kmart, Myer and Priceline.

If you’re wanting to keep it on the subtle sides with touches of purple, incorporate it into your style through accessories and jewellery. We’re loving the current pieces available in-store at Lovisa, Mimco and Strandbags.
