The tie-dye fashion trend is in full effect, so it’s time to invoke your inner hippie

Tie-dye is one of our favorite trends of the season, and it’s the perfect way to get yourself in the mood for summer, as you patiently await its arrival. We’ve already waxed poetic about the beauty of tie-dye nails and tie-dye hair, but let’s be honest: the easiest (and grooviest) way to wear this ’90s trend is right on your sleeve. And on your pant legs. And your shoes. You get the idea.

Below, we’ve rounded up 15 ways to wear tie-dye this summer—ranging from over-the-top, rainbow-bright prints, to more subtle pastel shades. Yes, even tie-dye can be subtle.
