Tie-dye print has a permanent place in American history, both in fashion and politics. In the '60s and '70s, the print symbolized rejection of rigid societal norms. A favorite among bra-burners and Deadheads, the pattern became synonymous with the ideals of '60s counterculture. History tidbit: the DIY print was influenced by a number of different dying techniques, including Shibori, which originated in Japan in the 8th century. Flash-forward to 2020: Tie-dye has become a runway staple and an easy way to access a bit of that free-spirited, rebellious energy. Whether it's a sweater layered over your outfit or you're opting for a head-to-toe print moment, now you can channel both your inner stoner and camp counselor alter-egos.
