How To Wear The Tie Dye Trend

The recent resurgence of tie dye on the spring and fall 2019 runways wasn't exactly good news to me. While I really love color, when it comes to print, I'm more of a floral or paisley girl. Tie dye typically reminds me of tourist T-shirts and childhood D.I.Y. projects involving buckets of dye and messy results. The more I see tie dye in stores, though, I have to admit that it's slowly growing on me. This season, it's decidedly more grown up and understated than the psychedelic hippie versions of the 1970s. No bell bottoms or headache-inducing colors here. Think grunge 3.0 meets free-spirited hippie with a softer, more sophisticated edge. 

Here's a look at three of my favorite runway tie dye looks.

The key to making tie dye modern is wearing it in updated color combinations and adding feminine flourishes such as lace. For a casual take on the tie dye trend, I love the simplicity of a tie dye tee or hoodie with shorts or faded denim for spring and summer.
