Tie-dye is everywhere this season, and while the print is fun, it can easily make you look like a hippie from yesteryear at a Grateful Dead concert.
The key to getting the look right is to choose polished pieces with the print–stay away from low quality t-shirts. Make sure that you anchor the bright print with neutral pieces. If you want to mix the prints, either stay within the same color family, or pair a bright tie-dye piece with a more neutral one. This outfit is great for the weekends, but if you want to wear it to work, just swap out the shorts for a khaki skirt or pants. Here are the pieces you need to get the look:
We love the big tie-dye print on this Rachel Rachel Roy Tie Dye Cardi ($109). The cardigan has cool details like a zipper and a sheer panel that makes it modern and sophisticated.
A bag like this ASOS Tie-Dye Hammock Bag ($33.82) is a great way to wear the trend. This bag is good for the weekends and it adds a pop of color to your outfit.
Sometimes a khaki short can make you look like a park ranger, but these MICHAEL Michael Kors Paperbag Waist Shorts ($59.50) are polished enough to dress up or down.
This Banana Republic Timeless Tank ($17.50) is a customer favorite for a reason. It’s made of a soft pima cotton that’s great for layering or wearing alone.
