What’s the newest vintage 90’s trend to hit the street scene? Believe it or not, it’s actually tie-dye. Tie-dye is showing up everywhere; on hats, purses, shoes, necklaces, shades, jackets, and of course on body jewelry. So why is the tie-dye super trend suddenly taking off? Well as always, it seems that a mix of urban clothing brands and our favorite celebrities are the ones to blame.
Tyler the Creator rocked the Pitchfork Festival this Summer in a collection of bright tie-dyed shirts, while Emma Roberts and Ashley Greene were seen at Coachella sporting sweet tie-dyed ensembles, and Katy Perry sparkled the People’s Choice Awards in dip dye.
And as for branding Levi’s, New Era, and Converse, amongst many others, have all recently come out with tie-dyed items that are absolutely fabulous.
Now check out all the tie-dye body piercings. I love matching multi-tonal tie-dye style earrings going up the helix, as well as the gorgeous but simple belly ring with a dip dyed look to the gems.
Bottom line: hippies aren’t the only ones who have fun with stylish splotching and color blending, and it’s not your momma’s tie-dye anymore!
