Columbus Day: Custom Attire Ideas To Celebrate In Style

by Alice Jackson Tweet - in Printshop Basics


Ahoy, fashion-forward readers! Columbus Day is approaching fast, and it is the perfect occasion to discover your hidden creativity and create custom attire to celebrate the day in style. 

Columbus Day is a national holiday when America celebrates the day of its discovery. It was the day when Christopher Columbus discovered America for the European people. Today, Americans devise various creative celebration ideas to mark the day. Amongst them, fashionable clothing ideas are the most sought-after. 

Columbus Day, celebrated on 9th October, also recognizes the Italian Americans’ contributions since Columbus was an Italian explorer who discovered America. But before we give you some ideas to celebrate, it would be good to know why we celebrate the day. 

Why Is Columbus Day Celebrated?

Christopher Columbus is credited by many with “discovering” America. He first set foot on American soil on 12th October 1492. But that does not mean that America had no people living there before the ‘discovery.’ People were already living there for thousands of years. Today, we call them Native Americans. 

Now, coming back to the creative ideas. There are multiple activities people undertake during the day. For instance, many buy personalized wall decor with the day’s theme to decorate home or office walls. 

Others wear custom hats and proudly walk around to show their respect for the day. Such hats also have artwork related to the day printed on the front or sides. Wearing clothes with a message is usually a favorite. But most people wear fashionable clothes that show their liking for trendy stuff. 

Wear some trendy and impressive clothes on the day. Fashion outfits share a common thread, from tees and hoodies to sweatshirts and more. Such custom apparel has some illustrations regarding Columbus Day printed. People wear these clothes not just on the day but later but also to carry the spirit of discovery and love of the nation.

Now, you might be interested in realizing your unique attire idea for the day.
