With DIY activities on the rise, it's no surprise that tie-dye dresses are having a moment. But the style, which rose to prominence in the '60s, is much more elevated than your typical dip-dyed shirt and socks. Designers are embracing the trend to give all your favorite style staples a colorful, retro flair, including eyelet minis, silk maxis, and everything in between. And the prints are sophisticated, too: splashy watercolor, rainbow ombré, and more.
If you're hesitant to embrace the look, know that tie-dye is more versatile than you'd every image. Tie-dye prints run the gamut from subtle to bold, and this season's dress styles come in casual, dressy, and sporty silhouettes. If you love a Bohemian aesthetic, why not go for a lace-trimmed maxi dress with yellow and orange ombré tie-dye? A fan of the classic LWD, try a puff-sleeve mini with a subtle watercolor take on the print. Looking for a dress fit for a night out with your friends? Invest in a slip dress with an eye-catching print in contrasting colors.
Below, find the top seven tie-dye dress styles to add to your wardrobe this summer.
