I’ve been anxiously awaiting 2019’s tie-dye trend since I first caught wind of it last fall. At September’s Spring/Summer 2019 fashion week, tons of designers showcased new takes on everyone’s favorite DIY fabric—rendering it chicer and more fashion-forward than ever. The tie-dye clothes trend didn’t quite hit its stride during the winter, but now that retailers are swapping their cold-weather collections for spring options, tie-dye is officially trickling into the zeitgeist—and as a maximalist who loves all things bold prints and bright colors, I’m very, very here for it.
And it’s not just high-fashion designers ushering in tie-dye’s resurrection. Though designers like R13, Prabal Gurung and Eckhaus Latta took full advantage of tie-dye in their Spring/Summer 2019 collections, fast-fashion retailers have gotten in on the trend, too. Tie-dye clothes are popping up everywhere—from high-fashion hubs, like Shopbop and Farfetch, to trendy stores with lower price-points, like ASOS and Zara. So no matter where you shop, you’re sure to find at least one tie-dye piece to fall in love with. (Seriously, the tie-dye clothes selection is so vast and varied you’d be hard-pressed not to.)
If 2019’s tie-dye trend has you tempted to find the nearest backyard and DIY a bunch of colorful tees, go forth and embrace your inner craft goddess. But if you’re not interested in expending the effort of tie-dyeing clothes—or if you know your tie-dye efforts always seem to result in some kind of runny brown mess (yo, been there)—there are plenty of ways to get in on the trend that involve zero DIYing what so ever. And I’m planning to take full advantage of all of them.
