Style Advice of the Week

What do you think of when you hear the words tie-dye? What comes to mind for me is the ’60s and ’70s, commonly known as the time of hippies, peace and love. I bet you didn’t think of high fashion either. But, with tie-dyed pieces all over spring runways, fashion houses like Tory Burch and Versace could have you thinking twice about that.

This week’s Fashionista sports a flowy black top with a funky blue and orange tie-dye pattern. She keeps the look fresh by choosing a top that is loose as opposed to fitted for a fun look and also one that features only a few colors so as not to be distracting. I love this combination of blue and orange for spring, especially in shades such as turquoise and coral. In order to appear dressed for the present decade, this Fashionista paired her top with light wash skinny jeans tucked into a pair of cool studded leather boots. She finishes off her look with sleek accessories like her metallic leather jacket and aviator sunglasses. Her entire outfit is effortless and chic, showing that you can associate tie-dye with a sense of style.

To avoid looking like you’ve stepped out of an Austin Powers movie, or something of the sorts, follow this Fashionista’s example and choose a flowy tie-dye top that only has a few colors. Throw on your favorite pair of skinny jeans and add a few edgy accessories like these leather boots and jacket to juxtapose the playfulness of the tie-dye print. With a look this cool and stylish, you’ll see how to die for tie-dye really is.
