Tie Dye Trend In 2020
The tie dye trend for spring 2020 seems to be here to stay. Everywhere I look I see this nostalgic print returning. To be honest, I have a hard time embracing this one. I did find this crewneck sweatshirt at my local Walmart for under $12, so I decided to give it a whirl. Plus, let’s be honest, I needed pictures for this post. 😉
All Trends Return Eventually
My sister sent me a meme last week that had a picture of Keds and an overlay of this Bible verse: What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun., Ecclesiastes 1:9. Immediately, I had to chuckle. Especially because this is most assuredly true in fashion. I can remember wearing Keds (or the knock off version like I have on in this picture!), all the time. They were the must have shoe when I was in elementary, middle and high school. Forget $500+ Golden Goose, I just wanted Keds with the blue label on the back!
While I will be okay to embrace the return of Keds, I am not convinced that the tie dye trend is something I will ever fully embrace. My hope and desire is that this time around, the tie dye trend will be more low key and classy than the 90’s. I grew up during this time period and so many things we wore, were just not pretty. Haha!
My Opinion On Tie Dye
I am absolutely showing my age, but I remember going to the theatre and watching Clueless, as if! I distinctly remember the guys in that movie wearing an abundance of brightly colored tie dye. It looked like a rainbow threw up on them. Everything was bold, bright, and neon. And I can’t handle that come back in 2020!
I was able to find some more tame and more classic options for the tie dye trend, if it is something you want to work into your closet. While I am not ready to fully embrace this trend, there are a few pieces I can get behind. The top I am wearing in the post today isn’t horrible, but if I had more time to prepare this post, I would have ordered a more subtle, ombre look, like this.
In close, tie dye is never going to be a staple in my closet. I will probably implement a couple of pieces that I feel will be more classic and subtle. And I will wear the crewneck sweatshirt featured above for a casual vibe or with leggings if I need a comfy day. What about you? Do you love or hate the tie dye trend. I would love to know in the comments!
