It’s a Tie (Dye).

By: Jen Shoop

I know that some of my more traditionalist readers (especially the ones accustomed to my wearing pink and pearls) are going to look at me askance with this trend, but herewego. The latest trend on my radar? Tie-dye. It started with Altuzarra’s borderline iconic Ilari dress two seasons ago, seen above on trend-setter Leandra Medine. (Rule of thumb: if Leandra’s wearing something, it will probably go mainstream in another season or two, so take the time to attend to what she’s up to.) Then I started seeing stylistas sport variations on tie-dye from labels as disparate as the well-heeled Tory Burch and the uber-trendy Elder Statesmen (and even always-on-point Gucci). And now I find that of-the-moment label SomethingNavy (sold through Nordstrom) will be carrying a tie-dye print in their February collection. I like I like I like — in select presentations.

+To Cocktails: Love the beachy vibe of this Zimmermann, this Rhode Resort, or this LoveShackFancy. Elevate the look with glowing skin (ahem and ahem) and some metallic mules or sandals.

+For Pool-side Lounging: Love this swimsuit, this caftan, these shades, and these sandals.

+For Daytime Coolness: This sweatshirt (get the look for less with this or this) with these jeans and GGs.

+For Yoga/Physique57/Trendy Exercise: A simple modern tumbler, an iridescent parka, pastel tie-dye leggings, a faded neon sweatshirt, a silver MZ Wallace tote or LeSportsac Gabrielle box bag, Electric & Rose joggers, scrunchies, and this vest in the pale pink.

+With Anything: Throw this oversized scarf over a swimsuit as a sarong or with a white tee, or pair this boxy bag or this splashy Prada with a solid-colored dress (<<LOVE) or simple pair of jeans. Or these with a neutral getup!

  1. Oooh, this is intriguing — I don’t think I own *anything* tie-dye, beyond an old “gym” t-shirt that I’ve had for probably 10 years. I love the Rhode Resort minidress and NSF sweatshirt in particular. Also, that pink Paskal dress … so perfect!

    Have you ever heard of the small label Upstate ( They make beautiful tie-dyed kimonos, sweatshirts, & more — plus an assortment of home goods.

    P.S. Fully agree re: Leandra being a bellwether for up & coming trends. I love browsing the regular Office Apropos features on Man Repeller as well — often wacky, but with good individual ideas that can be applied to my own wardrobe!

    1. UMMMM love that label!!! Had not heard of it! Love this dress as an alternative to the Rhode Resort one — that particular cut of dress is fairly voluminous and a little much on my petite frame, so this might be a better fit for me:


      I think I might order it! Thanks for sharing 🙂
