Closet Exorcism: Swap Jerry Garcia Tie Dye For Upscale Ombre

A big tie-dyed tee is ok at summer camp or a Grateful Dead tribute concert (maybe), but rarely grown-up enough to wear in the real world. And there’s something about tie-dyed tees that makes them consistently ill-fitting, no? I don’t think I’ve ever encountered one that wasn’t short and boxy. Not the way a lady should wear her shirt.

If you love the handcrafted, colorful look of tie dye but need a more sophisticated look, try ombre, tie dye’s fashion-conscious cousin.

Try an ombre tank ($29, was $48) underneath a sharp blazer for a playful effect; this one comes in six other colors. Or, for the ultimate in luxurious dip-dye, check out this cashmere crewneck from White + Warren ($74, was $185): it’s colorful and relaxed…just not so relaxed that you get munchies.
