Tie Dye Activewear Trends and How to Style Them
Festival fashions are dominating the runway and tie-dyes are chief among them. This colorful way of dying clothing originated some 600 years ago. It has roots in Asian and African cultures and was later popularized in America.
Although tie dying has long been a part of our culture, it really made a splash in the 60’s. Hippies loved its psychedelic look and wore it often. It was an especially big hit at the famous outdoor music festival, Woodstock.
Today, Woodstock inspired festivals are cropping up all over and they have brought a resurgence of 60’s fashion with tie dyes at the helm.
Tie dye can be applied to any piece of clothing and look terrific, but the style looks especially good on leggings. The uninterrupted canvas really works to bring out the print and colors.
If you are thinking of getting a pair of tie dyed leggings, you may be wondering how to style them. After all, they are somewhat of a loud print and that makes it challenging to find the perfect complementary pieces.
