We particularly love the way that tie-dye prints have a watercolor element to it, and therefore, look more statement making when worn in dresses. Comfy, cool, and easy, a tie-dye dress screams effortlessly chic perfect for your street style. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, add some posh to your tie-dye dress by topping it with a sleek blazer and wearing chic sandals with it. Or like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, team the color of your bag and shoes with the color of your prints for a coordinated look. The shock of blue makes it such a standout. Just go for the easy silhouette and flattering neckline for you.

  1. Tie-dye Tops

If you feel risky in the tie-dye dress, start with simple and dark colored tops, especially in the black and white, that feel more like graphic stripes than hippy tie-dye. Fashion blogger Jessica Ricks simply paired her tie-dye top with skinny jeans and a pair of classic pumps perfect for the weekend. If you feel a bit bolder on your street looks, then go for bold hues of tie-dye tops to spice up your white denim shorts. Or, like Kristina Bazan, you may opt for an “ombre effect” tie-dye tunic top that looks so subtle and pretty, and the color palette will work with everything you own.

  1. Tie-dye Shorts

If you feel tired of wearing your denim shorts with your white top over and over again, then simply trade those denim shorts with a pair of tie-dye shorts. Breezy, carefree, and wild, these tie-dye prints can add some lively look to your simple street looks. If you’re not a fan of techno or electro vibe, then simply opt for tie-dye shorts in subtle color and low contrast. Like Annabelle Fleur, wearing your pastel blue tie-dye shorts with a white button-down blouse and pastel blazer can turn the wild print into a chic one.
