Tie dye is huge right now, but how do you wear tie dye outfits without looking like you’re straight from the sixties or the nineties? I’ll show you how!
Trying to wear tie dye outfits age appropriately?
It’s time for another Trendy Tuesday! Today we’re talking all about tie dye outfits, per your request. It’s been a big trend over the last year or two and I think it’s here to stay for a few more years. The question is, how to wear tie dye outfits without looking too sixties or nineties.
3 simple tips for incorporating tie dye into your outfits in a modern and age appropriate way.
1. Choose modern tie dye prints
The signature sixties and nineties tie dye was overly saturated primary colors with the classic swirl pattern. Now, we’re seeing a lot of subtle tie dye patterns, like cool stripes LIKE THIS and THIS, beautiful patterns LIKE THIS, or more cloudy prints LIKE THIS, THIS, and THIS that have a soft mix of two or three colors.
They feel so much less in your face and are actually pretty!

2. Pair with classic, neutral pieces
As is the case with all trendy items, they feel much more classic if you pair them with classic pieces. Stay away from other super trendy items, especially with items that are also very sixties or nineties.
Here are a few examples below!
3. Look for tie dyed clothing items in modern cuts
When we wore tie dye in the nineties, it was all very oversized and shapeless….and now it’s back.
Lots of teens are wearing those shapeless, oversized t-shirts in tie dye prints, and it’s VERY nineties. So instead, choose a modern sweatshirt, or sweatsuit, a well cut t-shirt, or a pair of exercise leggings in the print.
If you’re over the age of 24, I’d recommend staying away from tie dyed t-shirts the size of a dress, LIKE THIS.
Give tie dye outfits a try!
