Fashion is cyclical and every few years (sometimes longer) trends re-emerge. This summer it’s the return of tie-dye. Tie-dye has made a return to the runway in a big way and goes far beyond the t-shirts of the 70’s. From dresses to pants and even hair accessories, tie-dye is back and updated. Here’s how to rock tie-dye in 2015 not 1970.
Maxi dresses – Maxi-dresses are a great way to wear tie-dye in a current fresh way. Dresses in bright, bold colors with jewel embellishments are a great option for summer. They are easy to wear and need minimal jewelry to complete the look. Easy breezy.
Pants – Tie-dye pants are a great way to wear tie-dye. Pants in bold colors like black, white and blue or green paired with a simple one-color top let the pants shine. Adding chunky colorful jewelry and heels (or sandals if you’re going for a casual look) will pull the entire look together.
Skirts – Skirts in all silhouettes come in tie-dye now. For a fun, whimsical looks pair an A-line tie-dye skirt with a crop top and sandals. For an evening look pair a tie-dye pencil skirt with a shimmery top, strappy heels, jewelry and a great clutch. For a boho sheik look you can pair a long maxi skirt with an off the shoulder t-shirt, sandals, a cross body bag and a great hat.
Shirts – The tie-dye t-shirt started it all. Now you can wear tie-dye t-shirts, tanks, off the shoulder, crop tops, button downs…you name it, you can wear it in tie-dye.
If you don’t want to spend tons on designer tie-dye, then get a kit from your local drugstore and tie-dye your own clothes! DIY tie-dye is easy and a great way to get the look for less. Whether you buy or DIY, give tie-dye a try! The rhyming was totally unintentional!
