Quintessentially laid-back in style, tie-dye doesn’t have to echo back to its bohemian roots in 1960s and 1970s music culture. You can take the hippie style out of tie-dye by pairing it with clean shapes and sharp accessories. The resulting look is a sophisticated blend of downtown chic - here’s how to get the look:
1. Start with a tie-dye short paired with a relaxed fit t-shirt. Notice how the grey of the shirt doesn’t compete with the striking print on the tie-dye short.
2. Slip on a biker jacket to give the look a harder edge.
3. Finish off the look with a pair of gladiator sandals and aviator glasses. And as a nod to tie-dye’s bohemian past, add a fringed handbag - in a sophisticated jet-black, of course.
