The trend that time forgot

All dipped in ink

We put it in the memory bin along with mood rings and scrunchies. But tie dye’s graduated.

Short & sweet

We’ve mentioned this before – we’ve never been 100% on shorts. But this soft pair from Topshop are furthering the argument for, because they sort of look like a skirt. And they come without the worry of the wind blowing it up, which gives them extra points. £30, Topshop

Top heavy

This smock dress from Aussie brand One Teaspoon is that hard-to-get-right mix of rocky (the greyscale tie-dye almost resembles bones, don’t you think?) and feminine. Wear it with sandals in summer or tights and Chelsea boots when the weather turns. £75, One Teaspoon at Asos

Skater girl

There’s something so irresistibly ’90s about skate brands (remember how low slung your jeans were?) but Vans have kept up to date even when they’re throwing back – like with these low top turquoise Tie Dye Authentics. They’ll look surprisingly fresh when everyone else is wearing tennis shoes. £52, Vans

Jean genie

Pull & Bear know how to do tie dye better than most, but these jeans are a standout. Usually white denim feels like a slightly dangerous move, but the top blue inking and boyfriend fit make these seem actually very wearable, especially with a lighter blue chambray shirt. £29.99, Pull & Bear

Same but different

Striped T-shirts might be ubiquitous but this & Other Stories one is made from another mould. It’s a cotton-linen blend, so it’ll hold its shape. And because its tie dyed, each one will look slightly different. Which is the whole appeal, really, isn’t it? £25, & Other Stories
