The American hippy movement in the mid ’60s and the iconic Woodstock music festival in 1969 had famously linked this psychedelic print to ‘freedom, love, and peace’...making it a global hit. The trend, actually born centuries ago in Peru, returns in 2019 with some stellar appearances already.
Although tie-dye stuff—shirts, skirts, shorts, pants, dresses, and everything else you can think of—has been invading shop windows lately, you can also make them yourself at home, and quite like a pro! Take the garment you want dyed, knot it several times, and immerse it in water diluted with bleach. Leave for a few minutes depending on how intense you want the design. The result: unique, and so you!
It doesn’t matter how you choose to flaunt the trend, the key is to make it the centre of all attention—either by way of the outfit or the tie-dye design. If you’re not too big on going ‘in-your-face’, place your bets on a catchy tie-dyed accessory, such as a scarf.
Don’t shy away from pairing jewellery with it, preferably as multi-coloured as the trend itself! Think necklaces, earrings, bracelets, pendants, rings et al. Decide the size and number of the jewellery based on your personal style and preference.
BEST FOOT FORWARD
When it comes to shoes, anything goes with this trend: your favourite stilettos, slides, sneakers, even cowboy booties or Birkenstocks-style sandals with socks. There are no rules really, so surprise yourself and you may end up making a new style statement for all you know!
