The Tie And Dye Print Can Be As Dressy And Casual. Here Are 5 Different Ways You Can Incorporate The Versatile Trend Into Your Wardrobe

By  | 

I remember learning (and instantly being fascinated by) the tie dye technique in an art class in school. I loved the quirky patterns and how it looked on the tiny piece of fabric I did the cool experiment on. That time, it was an innocent art project but I didn’t know I would be hoarding different pieces of clothing in the same print years later. It has been one of the hottest trends in the fashion world for two years now and seems like it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Not that we even want to.

The tie and dye is a Japanese art that was widely popular in the 60s and has been used as a traditional craft in India since decades. However, the print was restricted to dupattas and sarees in the Indian clothing market until it recently made a comeback in the international runways again and become a global phenomenon. The artsy pattern has been reinvented by adding a contemporary appeal to it and is designed into various clothing items from pants to dresses to even Indian wear. If you already own a tie and dye T-shirt, you know how much of a rage it is right now.

However, this print goes beyond casual wear. We have spotted a range of sartorial options that feature the print from dresses to lehengas that prove that it can be fancy and traditional as well and looks just as stunning. Here are 5 looks in the tie and dye print that you can try to hop on the trend, before it’s too late.

While in the isolation, all of us swore by sweatshirts and sweatpants. Well, the fashion folks ditched the dull and mundane designs for the vibrant and interesting tie and dye printed sweatsuits to probably to deal with their sagging spirits during the lockdown. Whatever the reason was, tie and dye sweatshirts became the hottest quarantine trend and although we are no more in isolation, it is worth investing and taking to the streets.

Saree

A saree with a swirling pattern of tie and dye isn’t an alien concept for Indian women. In fact, chances are you even got yourself one from your trip to Jaipur a few years ago. However, this exquisite sequinned drape with the beautiful traditional pattern is exactly how the print has evolved to accommodate the modern trend. We love how this lavender and pink saree perfectly melds style with a traditional craft.

Dress

 

A printed maxi dress is a fashion essential in every woman’s wardrobe but you might want to snub your usual florals and striped numbers for a chic tie and dye printed dress. This looks equal parts classy and casual. If you are not big on colourful prints, get yourself a dress in a neutral colour palette and understated print. That’s the best this about this trend—it’s fits in for every occasion and style.

Pants

You might remember having a tie and dye tshirt as a kid but the new fashion rule book wants you to be more experimental and wear the prints like never before. In 2021, we are wearing this exciting print on pants, instead of pants. A nice pair of pants with this playful print teamed with a solid-coloured top is the most effortlessly stylish outfit this year.

Blazer

This is the year of printed blazers and we are seeing a bevy of options in different prints and patterns. But a tie and dye one remains an absolute favourite. The colour splashes on your structured jacket strikes a perfect balance of formal and casual which makes this tie and dye piece so versatile you can wear it with skirt, pants or over saree to get yourself a different outfit every time.
