Fashion: Tie-dyed trend

Over the last year the 70s trend of tie-dyed everything has resurfaced everywhere from my Instagram feed to international runways. I’m rather enjoying this splattered look making a comeback, especially in muted pastel tones.
Ever since my mother showed us how to tie-dye using pegs or elastic bands before dumping them into a bucket of dye to create circles of colours, I’ve had a penchant for tie-dyed material. Years later I repeated the ritual for my daughter who wanted a bedroom of purple tie-dyed curtains and bedding, along with scatterings of gold stars painted on burnt orange walls (I think the outcome was a happy tween hangout!).

I’ve paired a tracksuit jogger with a Mens pink hoodie and tied the matching tie-dye top around. When styling I often tie tops under the arm or waist to add a bit of effortless ‘cool’. Whether I pull off this ‘cool’ look or not is irrelevant as the only activities I’ll be doing in my loungewear is drinking too much tea with a series playing in the background, or pottering around the garden tending to herbs. After all, these pieces are for comfort and, as the name suggests, lounging! I’ve popped on a pair of men’s socks from Woolworths and I’m still on the hunt for some seriously comfy woollen socks; any suggestions?

My tie dye joggers (R399) and sweatshirt (R349) are currently available from Woolworths and pink Mens hoodie (R199) H & M

That’s it for today – keep warm and snug on this cool evening!
