The 60s-era motif that has taken everyone by surprise is here to stay. Last year, tie-dye invaded the fashion industry, showing up on everything from sweatpants to tees to handbags. The print shows no signs of leaving the runways (or our shopping carts) anytime soon, and this versatile trend leaves room for designers to reinterpret the iconic print according to their brand’s heritage. Dior, for instance, opted to incorporate tie-dye using subtle shades of deep blue in their fall 2020 collection, while Italian houses Versace and Prada tend to take a compelling neon-bright approach to the trend.

This season, you’ll find that brands are continuing to hop on the vibrant tie-dye train, and although summer is well underway, most of us are still searching for the perfect summer-essential dress. Whether you choose a lightweight slip or a stunning designer piece, a tie-dye dress is sure to become one of your warm weather wardrobe staples. 

If you’re looking for an unconventional going-out look, this is the dress for you. This sexy little number hugs you in all the right places while the matching gloves add a statement-making, fashion-forward twist. Complete the look with heeled sandals and bold earrings.

Once again, Prada shows us how it’s done. Designer Miuccia Prada opts for a more abstract application of the hot motif, creating a striking watercolor bleed on crisp cotton poplin. The mother-of-pearl buttons and detachable belt also add an elegant touch to the look, making this dress perfectly versatile.
