The ressurection of tie-dye swirls fashion towards fall.0
That’s right. The resurrection of tie dye will keep you truckin’ through summer and swirl you into fall. Alright, let’s clarify. Get those Grateful Dead t-shirts out of your head ladies. This is not our camps tie-dye day nor will you have to raid your daddy’s drawer for a plain white T. Today’s tie-dye trends make an appearance in marbled resort wear, feature a fierce fade factor and can accent an outfit from head to toe.
Know that an entire tie-dye outfit is fiercely frowned upon, but as accents, tie-dye can put pizazz in your outfit. From top to bottom, here are the best of this consistently coming back trend.
A scarf! Remember those checked Spanish influence scarves that went from hipster cool to Urban Outfitters exposed in six months flat? Yeah, the fringey ones. A nice alternative to that played out piece is a soft – key word soft – tye dye scarf like this little number Rhianna was spotted sporting several weeks back. Note how this scarf has just two tones in the same color family. Too many colors are, well, just wretched, but also hard to pair with the rest of your wardrobe.
A T! For bopping around town, you’re permitted a soft tie-dye t-shirt. Madewell Jeans has an array of cozy tie-dye t-shirts in a soft greyish blue, a muted green and a mellow yellow. These are great paired with jeans and gussied up with some thoughtful bracelets or a chunky ring.
The bag! A personal favorite, Miu Miu took this idea and ran with it creating a variety of tie dye bags for both spring and fall. The suede in particular provides texture and gives the edgy trend a more polished look.
The Jean! It’s normally not kosher to specify this, but if you have thicker thighs aka larger legs or a lot of junk in your trunk, the tie-dye jean trend is not for you. If you’re blessed with smaller stems, then go ahead and rock them. Tie-dyed jeans range from a grey/black more traditional tie-dye (left) to a white fade like these Stella McCartney dégradé skinny jeans (right). Again, more severe tie-dye pairs best with an understated top. Which ever your pleasure, be mindful when you select your tie-dye piece. Oh, and smile, we’ll be wearing these accents well into the fall. Groovy.
