It’s exciting to see the promise of Spring awaiting just around the bend. Today we’re looking at the Spring 2016 tie dye trend.

Spring 2016 Tie Dye Trend, how to wear

Spring 2016 Tie Dye Trend

Tie dye is a major style trend for Spring. Typically, tie dye evokes visions of bohemian style and floppy hats, but this season’s designs show this trend used in much more traditional forms, while still maintaining a flowing, casual feel.

How To Wear Over 40

Tie dye makes a strong style statement, so a little bit goes a long way! When sporting this trend over 40, try focusing on just one piece of your wardrobe…like this tie dye sweater.

Spring 2016 Tie Dye Trend

I paired this coral tie dye sweater with a simple tank and jean skirt. While the styling of these pieces is rather understated, the color combination makes quite a statement! I love how this deep purple tank and amethyst jewelry pieces work with the coral.

The belt is the segue piece that helps pull all the colors together.

I had this skirt made from a pair of jeans that had been sitting in a stack in my closet for years…it just too cute! How about it…are you willing to take the tie dye trend for a spin this Fall? Try something like this tie dye cardigan from Macy’s.

    The purple and coral look great together! I have never been a tie-dye person, however, I can see myself getting on board with items like your cardigan and a couple of other pieces you featured. Also, your skirt is just too cute!

  6. Ohh I really love coral and that Tie dye is surely something that I believe will work. Spring trends could gt nasty at times if one isn’t keen and I think you have furnished me half a wardrobe already. Thanks for the share.


    • Shellie Bowdoin says:

      Hi Cindy, I’m glad you like it! I am so with you on the fact that we have to be careful with the trends. I always consider the trends as a starting point, then I pick and choose what works for me.

  7. Lanae Bond says:

    Tie-dye is a great trend, but I have not trend it yet. I would wear something like your cardigan. It is really cute!

    • Shellie Bowdoin says:

      Yes Lanae, the sweater is a more mainstream treatment of tie dye.

  8. Anna Parkes says:

    Coral is a great colour on you, and one of my favourites too. I haven’t ventured into the tie dye theme yet, but will have to look into that now. Spring here we come!

    • Shellie Bowdoin says:

      Coral is a color that works on a lot of people. Glad you stopped by, Anna.

  9. Loving the coral tie-dye on you!

  10. Tie dye is the bomb….another retro trend coming back from my 70’s growing up years…LOVE IT! I love how you paired it with the purple t..shirt..very cute!


  11. Tie dye looks great on you…..not sure it would look great on me! Your color combinations in this outfit are very pretty together and the shoes really accent the coral color as well. Nice!!

    • Shellie Bowdoin says:

      Thanks Debbie, I’m sure coral color would also look good on you because it is a universal color that works with almost all skin tones.

  12. Stacey says:

    So cute!! I’ve always liked a little tie dyed mixed in from time to time. I have a tie dye just above the knee skirt that I got at Macy’s probably 5 years ago. Throw on a little white tshirt and it’s perfect for spring and summer. 🙂

  13. Patti says:

    Oh yes, hooray for tie-dye! And you are doing it so beautifully, Shelley. Love the belt, the jewelry – the whole look. Thanks for sharing, xox
