Tie dye! These bright bold type of prints dates back centuries ago from Asia, Latin America, to Africa. Tie-dye is a modern term invented in the mid-1960s in the United States. I have always been a fan of tie dye prints since I was in elementary school. I had so many different colors in t-shirts to shorts to socks. Yes extreme overboard! They were your typical spiral patterns with the use of multiple bold primary colors. Naturally as I became older, my interest waned from wearing them. However, a more "sophisticated" tie dye has emerged in the fashion industry characterized by simple motifs and monochromatic color schemes not only on cotton fabrics.

This 2 piece short set from Allure Essentials is definitely a prime example as to how tie-dye has evolved over the years since I was young. The print is a bright bold combination of yellow and blue on soft jersey fabric. It's high waisted and the top is cropped. It has great stretch and I love the fact that I can wear this with heels or sneakers. Unfortunately, it is sold out- however I found an alternative that may pique your interest. Check out my page for a similar set. My neon yellow sandals are from Fashion Nova. Check out my page for an alternative.

What do you think about this outfit? Do you like the sneakers or the heels? Are you a fan of tie-dye? Comment below!
