We knew the tie-dye trend had legs when the trippy print covered the Spring 2019 runways at New York Fashion Week, but it seems like it's only hit its peak this summer. And what's a better place to wear this popular motif than at the beach?
If you think you can't pull off tie-dye, think again. There are plenty of bathing suit choices that commit to the trend to varying degrees, from full-on swirls to subtle splashes. If you want a toned-down version of tie-dye, aim for a swimsuit in a single solid color — preferably a neutral — or turn it up a notch by going for a multi-hued, rainbow-inspired palette. A bikini will help break up the eye-catching print, while a one-piece will likely make a bigger statement. And if you're still not convinced that a tie-dye bathing suit is for you, there's always the gingham bikini.
