Tie-dye is making a comeback this season and I couldn’t be happier about it! Born in the 70s and a child of the 80s, the colorful stain brings me back to my elementary school summer camp days with giant buckets of dye and rubber bands, “Teen Canteen” dances in middle school, and Grateful Dead and Phish shows in my high school and college years. Tie-dye was always a fun way for us to express ourselves creatively with bright and bold colors. Clearly, the pattern screams nostalgia for me, but as it makes yet another comeback, you’ll notice that the trend is reimagined a bit.
Even though it’s a little subtler this time, tie-dye is still quite “louder” than most prints; it’s best to wear a piece with something more muted. From sundresses to sweaters to socks, you’ll be seeing this peaceful print on just about everything this spring and summer. Try a tie-dye tank with a pair of crisp white jeans and sandals or a flow-y, tie-dye sundress on a hot summer day. See below for some of my favorite tie-dye picks for women and men. Groovy!
