Tie-dye—the official print of psychedelic music and hippie stereotypes—is stepping away from its patchouli associations and suddenly looking much more fashionable, thanks to notable spring collections from Band of Outsiders, House of Holland, Tory Burch and more. While it still retains its casual roots on everything from loose-fit tees (as seen on Nicole Richie and Alessandra Ambrosio) and laidback denim (check out Gwen Stefani), the dying technique lends an interesting update to more formal pieces too (talking to you, Miu Miu). An easy way to add interest to your everyday mix, we’ve culled some of our favourite tie-dye pieces for you to try now.
