Some trends come and go, others stick and become classics.
All the tie die that I had seen before was either too expensive or too retro. I wanted it to look contemporary, not like a hangover haze from Glastonbury.
I wavered, and hence avoided tie dye for over a year, but with the lock down I thought that anything that would add a bit of colour to my ‘uniform’ of gym wear was worth revisiting.
I think that one piece is enough. It’s so easy to go overboard and go for the same style in joggers, hoodies and socks, not to mention hats, but I would rather find one piece, leave it at that, and pair it with something that you already have in your wardrobe, be it a skirt, shorts or jeans. I adore the images below as they look current and stylish.
Leave the full tie dye look to the young ones. This is not a trend to spend a fortune on; the tie dye Prada bag below is over £2,000 and is sold out! Bonkers in my opinion.
Find the colour that suits the pieces you already have in your wardrobe. As I wear a lot of denim I went for the blue one below from Bikind, which just ticked every box.
I really adore it. It’s soft, cosy, feels fresh, not too 70’s and at £49 is fairly priced. That’s it, I don’t need any more!
Check out my edit below of some of the pieces that are worth taking a look at.
