Tie Dye Jumpsuits and Sneakers
Tie Dye has remained somewhat of an anomaly, it’s kind of trendy but also sometimes not. It straddles a very thin line between being chic and tacky – see; the 90s runway iteration of tie-dye and the TikTok trends during the pandemic-and requires careful styling and choosiness to come off as stylish. To pull off tie-dye this summer, embrace the retro vibes and choose a tie-dye jumpsuit in a lightweight fabric. Pair it with white sneakers for a comfortable and trendy look. Complete the outfit with statement sunglasses and a straw hat.
