How To Wear The Tie Dye Trend, Thanks To These 15 Fashion Items
Is it just me or was tie dye a dead and forgotten trend for so long? I've really only seen it at music festivals (but TBH, those trends are over as quick as your wristbandt is removed), old photos of my parents, and at '70s-themed parties. I actually wouldn't even know how to wear the tie dye trend without looking like I'm wearing a costume. But it seems that, recently, the style that has historically been associated with hippies and flower children is making a strong comeback, and there's not a single Woodstock-esque, rainbow-colored swirl design in sight.
Tie dye first emerged as a fashion staple this season on designer runways across the board. And you know what that means: These styles have already trickled on down from the runways to stores even I can afford. And now that that's happened, the trend has evolved into a version of itself that's better than ever. Neon color palettes have been replaced with more sophisticated color combinations and tie dye prints and shapes are far more varied and unexpected. What's more, you can find them splattered across more fashion-forward silhouettes, like work-friendly dresses, designer bags, and go-to jean styles.
Here are the fashion-forward tie dye picks you'll want to add to your cart ASAP.
