If you thought tie dye was only for summer camp or those jam band concerts you couldn’t get enough of back in your college days, think again. The colorful trend is making a comeback and this time around it’s as high-end as your designer bag and shoes.
Take the chic architecture of a Prada frock, toss in some strategically placed rubber bands, some fabric dye, let it simmer and voila, you have this perfect modern day hippie-esque dress, dubbed Prada’s sable dress with tie-dye print. But don’t expect to wear this in a field with a flower crown. You’ll don this dress to dinner and out on the town in anything but Birkenstocks.
Bells are back. Which makes the popularity of tie dye feel like a natural progression. But these bells from Dior have it all. Boasting a kaleidoscope pattern, these jeans begged to be worn with a worn-in tee and sneakers on a lazy weekend. Or pair with a glitzy blouse and over-the-top heels for an adventure in the city. These days, tie dye is as much a part of the establishment it raged against in the ‘60s.
Alice + Olivia has always been in touch with its bohemian side. And now it’s even more so with this Shannon tie dye maxi skirt. Pair with a plain white tee to make the skirt stand out. Or make a major peace, love and fashion statement by wearing it with the matching blouse.
It's summertime so why not take the tie dye trend to the beach? Reformation’s Topanga one-piece suit plays into trend but also brings an air of elegance with the suit’s classic and sexy shape. And with one-pieces doubling as bodysuits these days, plan to wear this well beyond the beach.
