The cyclical nature of fashion means that what was in trend a decade ago will surely someday return to exert its dominion over the trend charts and, in turn, our shopping lists. Further proof of the same can be found with tie-dye, the Coachella-ready trend that doesn’t appear keen to relinquish its hold over fashion quite just yet. With the onset of the pandemic causing this trend to soar to dizzying new heights in our stay-at-home wardrobe, here’s a comprehensive guide to making the most of this trend beyond the usual suspects.
All the ways to include tie-dye in your daywear wardrobe
Tie-dye serves as an easy way to add a pop of colour to your Zoom wardrobe, and it comes as little surprise that it emerged as a celebrity-favourite during the lockdown this past year. If you are looking for non-boring ways to invite it in your daywear lineup, follow Katrina Kaif’s lead and opt for a two-one sweater secured with safety pin motifs.
Or if you are tired of all the summer-y brights, allow Bhumi Pednekar to convince you to invest in moody hues instead.
The statement-making nature of tie-dye means that your options aren’t just confined to co-ords either. A pair of pastel-hued joggers like Sara Ali Khan can serve as the perfect companion to a white tank top.
Ananya Panday clearly agrees, as she styled a sky blue pair with a strapless white crop top while on vacation.

However, it doesn’t end there. If you thought tie-dye was just a daywear staple, allow Bollywood’s finest to convince you otherwise. Look for cues from Kriti Sanon who took hers in the form of a dreamy dress, topped off with neon heels for a punch of colour.
On the Indian wear side of your wardrobe, you’ll find that tie-dye holds court there as well. The star opted for a sunny sharara set for a friend’s wedding while elsewhere, Kiara Advani elevated a tie-dye lehenga by pairing it with a showstopper metallic blouse.
And finally, on those nights when you’re in the mood for classics, Diana Penty’s sleek sari and appliquéd blouse will make for a failsafe candidate.
