Here's Why The Tie-Dye Print Is Not Dying Anytime Soon
In the list of classic prints, namely stripes, polka, floral, the fashion police is urging another very deserving candidate to be added: the tie-dye print. Originated in Japan, tie-dye typically consists of folding, twisting, pleating, or crumpling fabric or a garment and binding with string or rubber bands, followed by application of dye. Unlike regular resist-dyeing techniques, tie-dye is characterised by the use of bright, saturated primary colors and bold patterns. And its because of the bright colours and the bold patterns, that we absolutely love this print.
The best part about tie-dye is that it infuses even the most simple outfit with so much colour and vibrance that its hard to overlook it. A simple pair of denims with a tie-dye printed T-shirt or even a bag can be a great day look. Its also fun to pair solid coloured accessories that’s contrasting to the colours that your tie-dye print may have. So for instance, if your tie-dye consists of a mix of orange and yellow, you can rock a neon green pair of earrings. Tie-dye is all about having fun with colours and mix matching your colours is one key tip for styling your look when rocking tie-dye.
That being said, we bring to you some of our favourite tie-dye looks on our very trusted fashionistas. Here we go.
