Layer Denim with Tie-Dye
Pairing anything with classic denim can hardly ever go wrong. With tie-dye as well, pair a tie-dye shirt, tee, or hoodie with flared or straight pair of jeans. You can also add a denim jacket to the mix as fall is just around the corner and it’s going to be chilling outside soon. For warmer weather, you can wear a tie-dye hoodie over a tank for a quick outfit change.
Pair it with White
The base of a tie-dye garment is mostly white which is pairing it with white pieces is a safe bet for people who are not much into fashion. As tie-dye is multi-colored white neutralizes the other aspects of the outfit makes it look sharp. You can either go for white bottoms with a tie-dye oversized t-shirt or hoodie. Another option is a white tank paired with tie-dyed sweats.
Even though your tie-dye shirt is bright-colored, a little pop of gold or silver won’t hurt your look. Instead, adding sparkle to your outfit will make you stand out and tell out loud that you are not afraid to experiment.
Add minimal jewelry like thin chains and bracelets to your look. A belt also adds to an outfit. Make sure the colors of all the pieces you put together complement each other.
Switch Things Up
If you are up for experimenting with your outfits and all in to try new things, then go for some really unconventional tie-dye choices. Instead of going for tie-dyed tees and hoodies, DIY some pieces at home and add them to your wardrobe. You can add a tie-dyed dungaree, skirt or blazer to stand out from the crowd.
Pair it with a Dungaree
To keep your look casual, opt for a bright-colored tie-dyed tee and pair it with a dungaree of your choice of color. This is a subtle way of styling a tie-dye garment so that it does not attract too much-unwanted attention. The dungaree will hide and show enough of the tie-dye to keep your look chic while not making a big deal about it.
The No Bottom Look
The no pants or bottom look is one of the most favorite when it comes to styling tie-dyed shirts. Over-sized shirts also being a major trend in recent years, work well with tie-dye. For the look, wear an oversized tee or hoodie with biker shorts that aren’t visible, pair the outfit with sneakers or strapped sandals whichever suits your taste. You can also add a belt if you want in the mix.
Mix & Match the Tie-Dyed Patterns
Fashion today has no boundaries and no one judges you upon the clothes you choose to wear which is why it is easier to try new looks every now and then.
