Tie dye is not a new trend, but every time it comes back around it just keeps getting better and better. It’s mostly associated with the 60s and hippies but it is really much more than that. So how about a tie dye beach look today?
I’ve always had a thing for tie dye (my oldest piece of clothing is a blue-red-yellow dress with a peace sign on it I’ve had since I was nine). The years passed, and more classic prints like stripes and florals became a favorite of mine, as they’re closer to my personal style. But I always love a good tie dye piece and enjoy styling it.
There is a hesitation with the print though, which I understand as it can be very literal and read quite young, but when designers like Altuzarra, Fausto Puglisi, Michael Kors and Rodarte have taken it to another level. When you see designs like theirs, it makes you think about tie dye in a whole new way. Once again, tie made its rounds again for Resort 2017 with Acne Studios.
This black and white kaftan is easy to style and one of my go-to choices this summer for a tie dye beach look. It’s perfect for the beach and for the restaurant afterwards, with a little bit of help with the necessary accessories. I wore mine with my amazing hat from Lack of Color (I am so obsessed with it, and it’s on sale if you are obsessed too with fine straw hats), my Cult Gaia bag, a pair of AGS sandals, my signature Ray-Ban sunnies and a few minimal gold jewelry. Now that the summer is coming to an end, I think it’s safe to say that this bag and that hat have been my favorite summer accessories. How do you like this tie dye beach look?
On another note, this was my first post on the blog without makeup. Just lipstick. It felt so good that it certainly won’t be the last.
What do you think of the tie dye trend? Would you wear it? If so, what are some of your favorite dyed pieces right now? Would you wear them in Fall / Winter too? I look forward to read your thoughts in the comments below.
