Scroll through your Instagram feed on any day and you’ll notice tie-dye patterns are the hottest fashion trend this summer. According to the Fashion Institute of Technology’s Fashion History, tie-dye prints were a central part of the hippie clothing aesthetic that perpetuated the 1960s, and now the nostalgia factor of tie-dying is everything we need to make us smile.


Whether you’re new to the trend or you’re an OG follower from the ’90s (we see you, grateful dead vintage t-shirt fans), opting to wear this fun pattern this summer might be a cool addition to your summer bucket list. We promise if you wear it on your next walk, you’ll be most the stylish mama around.
