How to Look Stylish in Tie-Dye

When you think of fashion, tie-dye typically has a bad rep and makes you think of your elementary school days where you made them by hand in summer camp. Personally, I think tie-dye can be quite stylish and can be pulled off without looking like a 8 year old! Here are a few tips to wearing tie-dye in a more sophisticated way...

# 1. Keep Everything Simple

When you're wearing such a bold-print like tie-dye it's best to keep everything else simple and pair it with solids. Here Olivia Palermo is wearing tie-dye jeans and color coordinated the rest of her outfit with a burgundy handbag and a navy blue coat. Who says tie-dye is only worn in the summer?

#2. Start Small With Accessories 

If you want to try the tie dye look but are still hesitant, try adding it into your wardrobe with some accessories such as a scarf or a handbag. Here's one of my favorite Michael Kors bag from the new summer collection (they used so much tie dye!) called the Marina tote and as you can see from the photo, it's worn with an all-white outfit that just screams summer and draws attention to the bag.

#3.) Avoid Rainbow Patterns

Typically I stick to two-tone tie dye colors and try to avoid the rainbow patterns because of my fear of looking too childish. Of course, fashion is all about experimenting so if you think you can do it then go right ahead! I just tend to play it safe! Here Nicky Hilton paired her black and white tie dye skirt with a classic blazer and a tank top which I could totally see myself doing. I swear Nicky is SO underrated when it comes to her style. The girl knows how to dress!

#4.) Go Girly 

If you're someone who has a more girly style like I do then try wearing a tie-dye dress! I think it's the easiest way to get into the trend and most places start carrying tie-dye dresses during the summertime (perfect!). You can either go with a maxi dress or try something a bit shorter such as this one shoulder dress that Ashley Tisdale is wearing.

What do you think of the tie-dye trend? Will you be wearing it this summer? Let me know!

Until next time lovelies,
