An easy way to bring awareness to women’s rights is to dress accordingly. 

Imagine a world of equal rights for all genders. One set of standards free from bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world of diversity and inclusivity, where we celebrate differences.

International Women’s Day, 8 March, and in fact the whole month of March, is our opportunity to collectively help shape the future of women’s equality. Each year, the celebration of women and their achievements continue to get stronger and louder.

For 2022, the focus is #BreakTheBias.

Sometimes when big moments such as IWD come along it is difficult to know what to do, how to help, and what to participate in to show you care or support. As women and as everyday people, the easiest and most accessible way to bring awareness is through dress.

Here are the six colours you can be wearing in the month of March to support women’s rights and forge towards breaking the bias on your own accord. These are: Red (Power), Purple (Dignity), White (Purity), Green (Hope), Pink (Femininity) and Black (Support).

It is only fitting that we delve into a few colours of International Women’s Day. Purple, symbolising dignity, green for hope and white to demonstrate purity. These are all three core factors that the day and ongoing campaign embodies for inspiring women all over the world. 

Purple is such a fresh palette at the moment, and I am loving it in the light mauve tones. This is great across so many skin complexions and perfect paired back with soft creams and neutral tones to keep it light.

Green is still very prevalent in the stores, but if the emerald and forest colours are too strong, have a play with this warmer chartreuse tone. Giving that touch of green undertone that will ease you into the fresh autumn mornings.

If this trio isn’t your typical wardrobe palette, feel free to embrace other empowering colours of red, pink and black for IWD. Pink is known for its femininity, red for power and black for support. All three things that we need as women to push for equality and empower our global community.

Alternatively, play with accessories in this six-colour range to spice up your outfit for the day, and bring that little touch of support…because a little can go a long way!
