9 best tie dye items to add to your wardrobe now

Posted by for Fashion

Tie dye has become fashion’s favourite print for spring/summer, these are the best pieces to shop now. 

We are all well versed in Miranda Priestly’s famous line, “Florals, for spring? Groundbreaking.” Laugh as we might, for a long time we were hugely in favour of those ditsy florals as soon as the sun starts to shine. However, for spring/ summer 20 there is a surprising print that is usurping florals to take the most coveted spot. Enter, the nostalgic tie dye print. 

Like many 90s trends (see slip dresses, scrunchies and stomper boots), tie dye has had a fashionable makeover thanks to its popularity on and off the catwalks. From elegant tie dye skirts at Dior, to subtle sportswear pieces at Off-White, the print that was once reserved for surfer types and gap year students is now being adopted by the most stylish of women.

The popularity of the trend might be that its centred on simpler times – after school arts and crafts and joyful childhood memories – which given the current state of lockdown affairs might be just the sartorial tonic we need right now.

Or might be just the uplifting sight of psychedelic bright colours all swirled together. Either way we can’t get enough, and neither can the early-adopting street stylers who showed us just how to work this trend.
