It’s back. Yes, tie dye fashion has been brought back into the spot light from decades of obscurity. Thanks to the many runway shows prominently featuring tie dye clothing, many people are starting to think of ways of how they can pull off this style this spring and summer.

Men & Women
A tie dyed t-shirt should only be worn in casual settings. For a classic summer outfit focus on wearing light a light coloured tie dyed t-shirt. This shirt can feature reds, oranges, and yellows. A great look would be to wear distressed jeans paired with your favourite running shoes. Faded denim shorts are suitable as well.
Darker coloured tie dyed t-shirts are a bit more tricky to pull off. Because of the cheerful nature of tie dye, many people tend to not know how to wear something like a black and grey coloured shirt. At coatFibers we do not recommend wearing any type of dark coloured tie dye, as this type of t-shirt cannot be used to look anything else than casual. Stick with lighter colours for the best outfit possible.
