Tie-dye Gets a Luxurious Summer Makeover
Tie-dye, the most-loved garment of the 70s hippie subculture, is now set to be the biggest fashion trend. With huge fashion houses from Prada to Calvin Klein breathing new life into the sleazy dropout look, the psychedelic twirl of colour is the perfect way to usher in summer. Tie-dye can be versatile with an array of colourway and patterns, from flashy to monochromatic, so here’s how to rock it without trying too hard.

A dreamlike blend of cotton candy pink and blue served in a tasteful resort-inspired silhouette, Maison Margiela nails the trend with this fun yet classy piece. Tuck it into a midi pencil skirt for a more casual Friday look.
PRADA Tie-dyed cotton-canvas bucket hat
Prada brings us back to elementary school art class with this nostalgic headpiece that is now emblazoned with the brand’s signature logo. Pair it with washed out denim jeans and an oversized tee to conquer the streets.

Turn into a fine mamacita in this tropical-hued halter bikini top from J Balvin’s GUESS Vibras capsule collection. The “Mi Gente” singer spices up the tie-dye game with a feisty 90s Miami vibe that brings the heat to the beach.
