By now, you have probably seen the tie-dye trend EVERYWHERE….. and you may ask yourself, “How can I wear this fun trend without looking like a dated hippie from the 60’s or without getting that certain “look” from my 20-something year old daughter? Well, I’m here to show you how!
First, let me introduce myself. I am Shay the Shopper, a new fashion writer for Better After 50. I am so excited to be joining this fabulous community! I’m passionate about fashion and my goal is to help you save time by navigating the sometimes-overwhelming world of fashion.
Back to the tie-dye trend. The easiest way to wear this trend is to look for clothes with subtle colors, preferably with only two or three shades as opposed to the entire rainbow. Dip-dyed garments, also known as ombre, are a sophisticated version of tie-dye. Relaxed, comfortable pieces like sweatsuits and workout wear look great on we BA50s. Looking to dip your toes in this trend? Opt for accessories like tote bags, scarfs or even face masks or headbands.
