What is the first thing that strikes you when you hear summers? Fluid fabrics, sun-kissed yellows, pastel palettes, whites and shorts may be? Well, I found my perfect summer dress in a tie-dye indigo printed tunic and am so happy to have put a blog on the same! So, go on and read more about it! 😀
Tie-dye is essentially a technique of dyeing wherein you create multiple folds and twists in clothes and you use bright or solid colors. Although this art of dyeing dates back to ancient times, it is only recently that the fashion industry developed a sudden love for them. As a result, you may have seen street fashion stores to your favourite high-street fashion brands housing them too.
While tie-dye screams summer to me, I have also been inclined towards Indigo hued clothes this season. The combination of blue and white make for such a soothing overall look in an outfit. So, when I found a mix of indigo, tie-dye and a cotton based relaxed tunic on Jabong, I knew I’m going to wear them a lot (and I mean a lot) this summer. This tunic is a button-down piece with pockets that made it even more appealing to me (I love my dresses with pockets). It has slits from both the sides and has a high-low silhouette which is not too loud. This particular piece is so versatile to wear; I’m sure you would also have plentiful ideas on how to style it. For example, you could wear it with white trousers or shorts, black leggings or even palazzos or salwars. I’m wearing the tunic as a dress as I loved the comfort of the complete outfit. However, I did want to add a wee bit of zing to the look and so decided to team the tunics with my black thigh-high gladiators which I had bought from Koovs long back. As you can see, it lifts up the whole look instantly and it transitions to an Indo-western look. To do more justice to the theme of Indo-western, I also went ahead and added oxidized silver jewellery pieces (bought from flea market). Of course, Indigo and silver jewelleries are a win-win combination any which ways. For my hair, I put it in a sleek low bun; just twisted and rolled them up in a bun and secured it with bobby pins. To finish out my look, I chose soft make-up with kohl and pink lips and I was good to go.
How did you like this summer look? Would you try it out too? Do leave your comments down below to tell me if you do as I would love to know how differntly you would style them.
Until next time,
