It’s official: 2020 is the summer of tie-dye. If you’ve been scrolling through Instagram, I’m sure you’ve noticed more and more tie-dye recently. It’s a trend that’s been growing over the years and now is everywhere! While I love a good DIY, creating tie-dye at home is a little too scary for me with all my white home decor. So I’ve been slowly adding pre-made tie-dye pieces into my wardrobe. Here are some of my favorite tie-dye outfit ideas.
In honor of National Eat What You Want Day, I created this fun image for Instagram in three of my favorite tie-dye sets. The print makes me so happy whether I’m eating carbs and candy or staying healthy with a salad. I guess that’s why it’s so popular. We could all use a little extra happiness in our lives right now.
My favorite way to wear the tie-dye trend is with a top. I thought about getting a tie-dye sweatshirt but it’s already so hot LA so I got a few camisoles. I live in camis and jeans during the summer. And a tie-dye cami is a fun way to bring in color.
Another style top I live in is the button-down. This lightweight tie-dye button down comes with matching tie-dye shorts, perfect for lounging at home! When I eventually go outside, I can swap the shorts with jeans.
For all-over tie-dye, I go for tie-dresses. I’m super into slip dresses, because they feel like you’re wearing pajamas. I wore this tie-dye slip dress (now on sale!) from morning to night the other week while at home.
When it comes to my tie-dye outfits, I love them all. But when it comes to #NationalEatWhatYouWantDay I definitely have a favorite. Can you guess?
Pasta, pasta, pasta! I’ve been really into vegan pesto pasta during quarantine because it’s so easy to make at home. But when I do my weekly food delivery to support my fave local restaurants, I more often than not cheat on my no-meat diet and get bolognese. It’s my forever favorite pasta dish!
I’m sure I’ll be sharing more tie-dye outfit ideas as we head into summer. But I hope you enjoyed my first look into the trend. And random fact: did you know that tie-dye originated in Japan? Shibori is a form of tie-dye that has been practice there since the 8th century. That’s one of the silver linings of this pandemic. With all this time at home, I’ve been learning so much!
