The Tie-Dye Glow-Up With Pieces From Amiri, Palm Angels, and Etudes
Off-White, Amiri, and Louis Vuitton were among our favorite designers to debut tie-dye for dudes in their Spring ’19 collections. Ever since then, the trend has made its mark on streetwear, and it’s here to stay. Don’t worry, the designs have gotten a major glow-up from your experiments with food coloring and rubber bands at summer camp.
Today’s styles feature intentional patterns in tone-on-tone hues instead of a rainbow explosion of colors. Think faded and pastel shades instead of saturated brights. The best part about this trend? Pieces are equal parts comfy and crisp, so you can rock it at home now and show off in the streets later. Here are the tie-dye duds you need now:
Go big or go home. When it’s that time of the morning to switch from your night pajamas to your day pajamas, a tie-dye track set is the perfect option. Our favorites come in an array of sorbet shades or classic black, so you can tailor your style to your mood. Of course, they are sold separately, so you can mix and match tie-dye joggers with a plain white tee or throw on a zip-up for a quick grocery run.
Up your T-shirt game with a collection of tie-dye tops. Amiri does a ’60s redux on the trend in a multi-color faded pastel pattern, and Billionaire Boys Club takes the dip-dye technique all the way back to its ancient Eastern roots with Japanese lettering. Decide what mood you’re in for the day and pair with jeans or joggers. We recommend one for each day of the week.
If you’re not ready to go full-on Woodstock, start with some tie-dye accessories. Etudes puts a new spin on the trend with bleach, and Palm Angels’ socks have a sick flame overlay. Amiri’s signature skeleton-toe Slip-Ons now feature a tie-dye pattern, which you can rock with jeans or khakis and a tee (extra points if it’s the matching tie-dye one).
Tie-dye is having a major moment in street, and it’s coming at the perfect time. We love the association with peace, but today’s styles have a modern-day spin for contemporary hippies. Think subdued colors, tone-on-tone patterns, and innovative mediums (looking at you Skel-Toes). Most importantly? These laid-back styles can elevate your housefit now and easily transition to the outside world later.
