While tie-dye is (and always will be) a DIY activity we fully endorse, it’s also become more popular than ever in the world of fashion. From runways to real-life, this technique has gotten a stylish makeover and is definitely having a moment.
Although tie-dye techniques (like batik and shibori) have been around for centuries, tie-dye as we know it grew out of the hippie movement of the 60s and 70s, and then became a staple of summer camp activities. But let us tell you – tie-dye is all grown up – and being fully embraced by fashion brands. From casual loungewear pieces to activewear, shirts, skirts, shoes, and accessories, this fabric treatment is everywhere. So to get you in on the action, we’re bringing you all our favorite shop-able tie-dye styles for men and women (all under $100).

A t-shirt in shades of pink, multi-color leggings or cut off denim shorts are more subtle tie-dye options that are easy to incorporate into your existing wardrobe. For an easy pulled together look, try a simple sleeveless dress and cute slip-on sneakers. And for a day by the pool, opt a bright blue bikini, olive bandana, and tote bag.

For something more muted, go for a pair of understated sweatpants, a subtle pair of tie-dye socks or a spiral dye long sleeve tee in black & white.
