Happy March, friends! I am really excited for this month because spring is now only officially a few weeks away. Warmer weather is on the horizon! (In Los Angeles, at least.) I’ve been all over the Internet researching spring trends and wanted to do something fun for this month to get you fashionably set up for the season ahead.
Every Monday this month, I’m showcasing a new spring trend and rounding up my favorites in that category. Today is the first installment of this SPRING TREND SERIES and I wanted to start off on a high note. I’m going bold today and going straight for the grooviest and most “California” trend for spring – the TIE-DYE trend.
Tie-dye was all over the runway and slowly but surely tie-dye pieces are making their way to retailers. The tie-dye trend is so fun and actually the one trend I’m most looking forward to wearing into summer. It has all of those nostalgic vibes from when you were young, the rock ‘n’ roll edge of the 70s, and the effortlessness of retro California beach style. I mean, who wouldn’t want to embody all of that in one single piece?
I snagged this blue and orange tie-dye shirt last week during the Shopbop sale. I probably could have gone down to an XS but the small is a comfy oversized fit. If you scroll to the end of this post, I’m rounding up over THIRTY tie-dye pieces. That’s a lot of tie-dye!
SHOP THE LOOK
Even though I’m wearing this shirt with white jeans, you could get away with a faded pair of blue jeans like these or even a medium wash like this pair. My white jeans are by Current Elliott – I actually need a new pair because these are a little snug – and you can shop them here, or a ton of other white jeans here.
Since it’s still cool enough for a jacket, I threw on this denim jacket; it’s my go-to piece whenever I need an extra layer. A good denim jacket that fits well to your body never goes out of style. I’ve had this one for at least 3 years now.
Last but not least, I finished my look with a classic pair of Soludos espadrilles. (Life hack: this is always that weird time of year where one day it’ll get hot, and one day it’ll go back to being cold. Since my feet are nowhere near sandal-ready, I’ll spare myself an emergency trip to the nail salon and throw on these espadrilles instead to keep a look spring-y.)
The tie-dye trend can seem super intimidating at first because, well, tie-dye is a lot. Let’s just be honest here. But if you wear one piece and add in closet staples like a denim jacket and clean white jeans, you can stay on-trend without feeling tacky.
