October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Breast cancer has affected so many of our lives either through our own personal experiences or our loved ones, so let’s take the chance to show our support! There are plenty of ways both big and small to show our survivors and fighters that we care about them and keep them in our thoughts, and it can really make someone’s day when they see a person walk by sporting their support. Some people love wearing pink clothes and others prefer dyeing a lock of hair; you can get creative with your support!
And when in doubt, there’s always the tried and true pink ribbon! Small and simple, wearing the classic pink ribbon to show your support is always a genuine symbol and it’s iconic for the cause. You can wear it a bunch of different ways, too. We’ve provided a few ideas below to help you get started!
Add a ribbon to your scarves! Pin it to a loose tail or use it like a brooch to keep your scarf warm and snug around your neck! The simple addition will sit loud and proud to show your support with!
Hats are another autumn accessory that would hold a ribbon well! Whether a bowler, a skull cap, paperboy cap, the ribbon will look cute and fitting where everyone can see it!
This is one of my favorites. Ribbon bracelets are really cute and elegant, so if you’re a fan of this look, show your support this way! Wrapped around just snug and comfortable, people will know who you’re rooting for!
If you’ve got hair to dress up, tie it up with a pink ribbon! It’s a quick little addition to throw on before stepping out to go to work or class.
For short or longer hair, tie on a headband or pin a ribbon to a stretch headband to show your support!
Tried and true, wearing the ribbon over your heart is always a great way to go! Secure your ribbon with a safety pin, and you’ll be set to show your support.
And lastly, if you like to dress up and accessorize your bags, pin a ribbon to them! It’s just another little way to make your support clear to all those around you!
If you’re looking for ribbon to make your own Breast Cancer Awareness ribbons or for projects to show support, here are some good options!
