Spring 2019 Trend #3: Tie Dye

One of my favorite trends this year is colorful, groovy tie dye! While often associated with peace signs, hippies, and “Dead Heads”, tie dye is not something we are accustomed to seeing on the runway. And yet, there it was, in all its flower power glory! It was used by the likes of Prada, Chloe, and Stella McCartney and featured in Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmo, and Elle. Check out a couple of the great designer tie dye looks straight from the runway:
However, if you can afford those, you’re probably not reading my blog! Fortunately for the rest of us, there are many affordable options for great tie dye pieces to liven up our wardrobes. Stores such as H&M, Zara, Lulu’s, Nordstrom (and Nordstrom Rack), even Walmart and Target, all have tie dye this season! And don’t forget to shop resale, vintage, and thrift shops. You can find some amazing deals there as well.
WIth the popularity of tie dye among teens, I’ve had some people ask if it’s really a trend that “grown ups” can wear. The short answer is: YES! Just be mindful of the garment the tie dye is on. Pieces such as overalls, crop tops, or shorty-shorts might not be the best choices (unless those are styles that you frequently wear anyway). But you can easily incorporate tie dye into summery dresses, rompers, coverups, and tops. Another way to make the trend look more “mature” is to choose subtle colors. Instead of bright red or neon green, go with softer shades of blue, lavender, or even black. Check out these examples below, all of which were under $50!
While tie dye may never be appropriate for the corporate wardrobe, there are lots of ways you can affordably incorporate the trend into daily life and look groovy AF! Xoxo
