Nothing lasts in the fashion world but it seems like the age-old tie-dye look never dies or gets lost with the passage of time.

Ultra-popular in the 1970s, and thereafter revived to suit the times in the 1980s and 1990s, over the last few decades tie-dye has been a regular inclusion in fashion wardrobes. Now it appears that this summer will see a major resurgence in this ultra-colourful and psychedelic look, as evidenced by current street styles and a plethora of posts by Instagram fashion icons. Among others, Jasmine Sanders, Alessandra Ambrosio and Joan Smalls are already wearing what could be “the” trend for the 2020 summer season.

Jasmine Sanders

The top model and influencer have jumped on the tie-dye bandwagon, which has featured in a number of her recent posts on Instagram. Here, Jasmine Sanders has opted for a very high-cut bikini with a bandeau top in pink and white tie-dye, which is likely to cause a stir on the beach.


Candice Swanepoel

Another model, another style. Candice Swanepoel has chosen warm tones for a tie-dye t-shirt, which she wears like a crop top. Colour-wise, it features a mix of red, yellow, black and white, which is in stark contrast to her check swimsuit. A print mix & match that might well work in other outfits as well as on the beach.

Alessandra Ambrosio

The Brazilian top model is particularly fond of tie-dye clothes that are mainly inspired by 1990s and street fashion looks. Recently, she shared a short video of a choreography created with her daughter, in which they both wear tie-dye sweatshirts in sober natural colors. A charming moment of complicity between the generations.

Joan Smalls

As those who keep a close eye on the Puerto Rican top model have no doubt noticed, Joan Smalls already embraced the trend for tie-dye a few months ago. As early as October, she was seen wearing this pale pink hoodie with a brightly coloured tie-dye hood that mixed yellow, red and blue. A perfect piece for those who appreciate tie-dye in small doses.

Dua Lipa

The latest celebrity to take the plunge with tie-dye is the British singer and fashion icon Dua Lipa. Here, the 24-year-old is wearing a sophisticated reinterpretation of the legendary print with a multitude of colours worthy of an abstract painting. A daring look that is the perfect complement to her black and red hair.
