Tie-dye fabrics, which were excessively popular in the 90s, are back in trend again this summer.
Tie-dye can make for a great design for casual outings with your friends or family. Don’t hesitate to flaunt the trend when you’re travelling to stay comfortable, while also making a style statement. The design, however, may not always be recommended for work. You can still use the design in your work wear through a tie-dye stole or a bag that goes with your outfit.
Wear an oversized tie-dye shirt and pair it with a complementing palazzo for your next travel. A crisp cotton shirt in the design makes for a great warm-weather top. You could also wear a tie-dye slip dress and combine it with gladiators for a head-turner outfit requiring minimal effort. Tie-dye shorts or pants paired with a plain shirt can take your style up a notch.
If you want to go ethnic, wear a plain kurti and cotton pants with a multicolour tie-dye dupatta. Instead of a dupatta, you could also opt for a tie-dye jacket in cotton. If you have some old clothes lying at home, give them a fresh addition of colour by taking up tie-dye at home. The process is rather simple — pick up some threads and tie them on your fabric, dip the cloth in one or multiple fabric dyes as you desire. After letting it dry, remove the threads and wash before using it. The kind of design that the dye results in depends on the manner in which the threads are tied.
