Tie-dye epitomizes summer style. It’s colorful, comfortable and, best of all, inexpensive.
This 1960s trend has always had a following, but this year’s crop has a wide array of options.
If you love bold color and pattern, choose a neon tie-dye top and mix it with equally bright denim shorts. This eye-popping style is definitely for brave fashionistas.
For a modern take on the trend, look for a maxi dress in muted tie-dye tones and wear it with a long necklace and simple hair flower. This chic and casual dress can take you from day to evening.
Another way to try the trend without a big investment is to tie-dye your nails (also known as marbling). There are online videos to show you the technique.
Embrace your inner hippie and have some fun this summer in tie-dye, it’s guaranteed to be a favorite.
