Style on Trial: Tie Dye


Is tie-dye about to make a come back? Topshop presumably think so, anyway, because tucked away amongst those sublime blazers we featured earlier today, I found these faintly ridiculous skirts, in one of the 70s favourite washes.

What does tie-dye say to you? To me, it says "Bought from a tourist emporium in Magaluf, along with a straw donkey and a souvenir t-shirt", but that’s just me. Will you be glad to see the return of tie dye, or would you be happy to send it back to the era it came from?

    To me tie-dye says “clueless hippie” and there’s just nothing worse than hippies.

    I saw these skirts about 4 years ago when I visited Dallas, Texas and went to the Neiman Marcus flagship store. For “some reason” Juicy Couture, who made the skirt, didn’t sell them outside of the south.
