Tie-dye is a trend we probably cannot get enough of. Back in the 80s and 90s, tie-dye was a trend that ruled the hippie culture. Today tie-dye is trendy, funky and is the voice of the millennial and we're seeing a lot of it on sweatpants and sweatshirts these days. Since athleisure and tie-dye are the two most popular trends of the season, people can't get over the trend on sweatpants. And you know what's the best part? It is so easy to create it you can literally make it in your own houses. Let's face it you have all the time in the world now that you're working at home and you have all these old clothes that could totally deserve a makeover. Isn't it better to re-do your old clothes than to turn them into rags? If you've never liked your old and dull sweatpants then tie-dye them to add some life into and make your workout even more stylish. You can tie-dye t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweatpants, socks, scarves, bedsheets, tapestries and even masks too!
We've seen many celebrities and influencers endorse it too like Hailey Bieber, Emily Ratajkowski and Kylie Jenner to name a few. Tie-dying is fun and can even involve an entire party to do it with you; simply call your best friends over and have a tie-dye party where everyone comes with an old cloth they want to re-do. Here's how you can tie-dye your sweatpants (or literally anything) to be on trend with your favourite celebrity.
