Summers IT trend

Resistance is futile. Even the most minimalist among us have fallen under the bohemian spell of tie-dye and there is no shame in admitting that it’s actually refreshing to have swirls of colour in your wardrobe.

With numerous variations on this hippy print, it can be difficult pin down a style that doesn’t transport your outfit back to childhood. Trust us, grown up and chic tie-dye is possible.

Look to Dior, Dion Lee, Isabel Marant, and Proenza Schouler that managed to elevate it and give it some edge, while the newest Loewe x Paula’s Ibiza capsule presents a more casual edit.

For the most grown-up ensembles, we suggest picking out one tone colour within your tie-dye piece to match the rest of your outfit or neutralise a it by pairing it with a white item. Avoid adding another print to the outfit, but don’t be afraid of head to toe tie-dye, just choose a muted colourway.
