Tie dye is a print that never really goes out of style! However, throughout the past few years it’s been trending more and more. Here at Pulse, we love tie dye and have a large variety of colorful tie dye styles to choose from. While tie dye is definitely a must have for your wardrobe, it can oftentimes be harder to style in the winter. So if you’re seeking some cute and trendy tie dye outfit ideas for the colder months, keep reading.
Outfit Idea #1: Keep it Moving
The great thing about a majority of tie dye printed styles is that they are usually made of comfy material and often come in the form of a tee shirt, pullover or hoodie. We have tie dye styles that are great for when the weather gets cooler. One of our favorite ways to style bold tie dye pieces is for days on the go or even to workout in! Our tie dye leggings and pullovers are great for more active days. Just throw on your favorite workout tee with the leggings and some sneakers for a great workout outfit. For our look, we grabbed a pair of our lounge leggings and paired them with a lightweight tie dye pullover. This look is great because you can wear it while running errands or when you’re at the gym.
Outfit Idea #2: Add a Cardigan
Our next outfit idea is definitely great for cooler weather or when you’re a little chilly at the office. Tie dye usually involves a mixture of colors so it can sometimes be a challenge to find items to pair with it. Our tip is to choose one color from the tie dye item you are trying to style and pair it with a cardigan or pants that match with that color. When styling tie dye in the winter, try and go for a piece that has more neutral colors in it like olive greens, dark purple or rust. For this look, we saw that our tie dye pullover had a green undertone to it that would match well with our sage cardigan. So we paired those two together and finished off the look with jeans and sneakers. This look would also be cute paired with leggings for a more casual outfit.
Outfit Idea #3: Dress it Up
We are big fans of finding styles that can easily be dressed up or down. Believe it or not you can add a chic touch to many tie dye pieces to make them a little more dressy. Our tip is to focus on adding accessories and also choosing tie dye styles that include more dark colors like charcoal or burgundy, especially in the winter. For this look we took one of our comfy tie dye pullovers that fits a little more off the shoulder. We styled it with a lacy bralette underneath and would recommend adding a pair of statement earrings for a touch of style. We finished off the look with jeans and sneakers but adding knee high boots or heeled booties is a great way to dress it up even more.
Outfit Idea #4: Casual and Warm
The key to styling tie dye in the winter is to layer up without taking focus away from the bold tie dye style you are wearing. This is why we recommend pairing tie dye styles with cardigans and layering pieces that include colors similar to the ones in the tie dye piece. For this more casual look, we paired one of our tie dye tee shirts with a neutral brown dolman sleeve cardigan that’s super cozy. To finish off the look we added a pair of KanCan jeans and some white sneakers. This outfit would also look great paired with leggings and combat boots. Just remember to try and stick with colors that don’t clash with the tie dye top.
Outfit Idea #5: Pair with Leggings
There’s nothing better than finding new tops that pair well with comfy leggings! If you’re the type of person who likes wearing leggings more than denim, then tie dye is definitely a good style for you to add to your closet. Our tie dye pullovers and hoodies typically fit a little longer so they are perfect to pair with leggings. For this last outfit idea we took one of our colorful tie dye drawstring hoodies and styled it with a pair of our black leggings and some sneakers. This is another look that’s great for days on the go. On extra cold days, grab some fleece lined leggings for added warmth. Want to see more ways to style leggings?
