How To Wear Tie Dye

Tie dye is definitely my latest obsession. It reminds me of 90s grunge, Saved By The Bell, and American summers, an absolute winning combination if you ask me. I think a lot of people might steer clear of tie dye for fear of looking like a childrens television presenter, but its one of my favourite looks that I plan to incorporate in my wardrobe this summer. Its a really fun way to inject some colour into your wardrobe for the season transition, without breaking the bank, as dyes only cost a few pounds, and can be used on pretty much any old tops lying around. I really cant wait to get creative and restyle some old bits and pieces I never thought I'd wear again.

I'll personally be going with the motto 'the more colour, the better'. I love the tie dye pieces with super bright and clashing colours, especially for this delicious weather we're having at the moment. If the super bright colours dont appeal to you, more muted colours like midnight blue give a chilled out boho vibe, I particularly like the small splash of tie dye in the 5th outfit picture, with the skinny vest layered over black and paired with a maxi skirt. I think the cool toned blues look particularly nice within tie dye, and I think the 3rd picture with the acid wash effect looks amazing!

Will you be transforming all your old white tees this summer?
