I am exploring the tie-dye trend a bit further and make sure you know how to wear it.. then we all want to avoid looking like this poor guy:

Just when we thought denim couldn't possibly have any more patterns (polka dotts/ floral/leopard /aztec..), the 90's tie-dye trend is celebrating its revival. But forget any misconceptions you may have about tie-die prints. Forget drum circles, reggea music and hemp, then this time, tie-dye is not only crazy and cool, it even can be chic! So you can definitely wear it without looking like a dread-locked, acid-dropping dreadhead or like you've accidentally been shopping in the childrens department.



The tie-die-revival started with the neon, digital patterns on Proenza Schouler's spring/summer 2010 runway. In the meantime tie-die has become huge again and is getting splashed onto everything, from a basic tshirt to bags, pillows and even dishes.

But careful!

The tie-dye trend does not suit everybody and when combined badly, you easily can be mistaken for a highschool hippie.

-Avoid the full rainbow effect! Chose pieces with one to three colours that blend together easily.

-Stick to neutral tones such as white, black or navy to avoid the teeny-bopper feel.

-Pair it with classic accessories or none at all.

-Chose pastel or monochromatic jewel colours and combine them with flowy silk blend pieces.

But whatever you do, never (I mean NEVER!) combine your tie-dye look with a mullet!
