Tie Dye Is Not Going Away, But At Least We've Moved Away From Dad's T-Shirts
April 14, 2009
Since I wasn't ever a huge fan of tie dye when it made its third return in the 90s, I was really skeptical when I noticed it coming back on celebs like Victoria Beckham (in Balmain jeans) and Fergie (doing herself, and the trend, no favors in an unflattering pair).
However, I'm relieved to see that some designers are using tie dye in more toned down and interesting ways, instead of resorting to bleach and rubber bands in the backyard.
If you're game to try the denim, this pair of black sass & bide Tye Dye Jeans ($74, was $150)
is a more subtle choice, and still retains the slimming qualities of a skinny fit and basic black.
This Aqua Bias Stripe Tie Dye Scarf ($48) is colorful and lightweight..and looks enough not like tie dye that it could last you beyond the trend.
The fold-over design and gorgeous grey leather of this Foley + Corinna Mid City Tote ($444) make the dyed design surpisingly versatile.
