You don't have to be a fashion expert to know that tie-dye is one of the biggest trends of 2019. (I know, weird.) A quick Google search brings up dozens of articles from publications like Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Elle, all declaring the triumphant return of your favorite childhood print. And if you're wondering, there are many theories as to why tie-dye is back in such a major way, with fashion houses like Prada, Proenza Schouler, and Stella McCartney implementing it into their most recent collections.
That explains why you've probably seen a tie-dye item here and there in the last few months, be it on bags, blouses, or shoes. Whether or not you're a supporter, it looks like the trend is here to stay – at least through the end of the year.
Even though Beyoncé is an alleged tie-dye supporter, I'm still weary about saying yes to the trend myself. I'm more of a neutral gal, and tie-dye just screams 'Look at me!' – which I'm not totally comfortable with.
I'll let you make a judgement call on 2019's tie-dye movement. How do you feel about the trend overall? Does it evoke a happy feeling from your childhood? Hm, what about a painfully awkward memory from 4th grade summer camp? Yeah, that's more like it – at least for me. I can sort of understand and appreciate a light and subtle tie-dye sweater or blouse, but I'm not so sure how I feel about spending a couple thousand dollars on a bright multicolored bag. But hey, that's just me. If you've got the extra cash and are looking to splurge, adding a tie-dye piece into your collection may be fun and flirty.
I scoured the web for all the latest and greatest tie-dye purses from an army of brands. (Prada and Chloé, included!) What do you think? Love it or leave it?
