Tie dye is a look that is usually related to hippies or to people who live in tropical climates or at the beach.
When I was little, I had tie dye projects in school which involved white Hanes t-shirts, rubber bands and buckets of clothing dye. Luckily for me, I never had to wear my own artwork. Someone in Thailand had much better luck, though. My sister found this cotton dress in Bangkok a couple years ago and it’s perfect for running errands. Paired with a cardigan and belt, the tie dye look is acceptable even in the city. The asymmetrical hem makes the dress a bit more interesting than a regular old patio dress, and keeps your hem out of the gutters if you happen to be pint sized.
If you happen to have a multicolored tie dye top lying around, try wearing it with leather gladiator sandals and tucked into a denim skirt or high waisted denim shorts. The point is, tie dye isn’t just for hippies. You, too, can basque in the love, peace and happiness that a bit of tie dye may bring you.
