Get ready to see tie-dye taking over your Instagram feed. Yes, you read that correctly: tie-dye. The '90s trend just made a major comeback at New York Fashion Week.
How major? Well, it's like an episode of Clarissa Explains It All, except she's all grown-up and has enough money to afford Proenza Schouler, Sies Marjan, and Ralph Lauren. We've spotted the trend on three designer runways, so it's only a matter of time before your favorite style bloggers catch on.
Proenza Schouler once played with tie-dye on casual jersey T-shirts, but for the Fall 2018 collections Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez elevated the laid-back print to red-carpet status with a floor-length dress.
So forget everything you thought you knew about tie-dye. It's no longer just an embarrassing DIY project. The Proenza Schouler show proved that swirling colors can actually look both elegant and sexy.
Sies Marjan's Sander Lak seems to agree. Browse through the designer's Fall 2018 pieces, and you'll find a mixture of rustic oranges fading into silvery grays. Think of the pattern as an updated ombré with chic twists and folds.
Even Ralph Lauren is on the same page. After seeing a model stride down the runway in a divine blue-and-white gown, we're convinced, too. It's safe to say that tie-dye will be the next trend you're about to fall in love with.
