Is tie-dye a good look?
What do you guys think of tie-dye shirts?

i believe kurt cobain said it best in regards to tie-dye:

"I wouldn't wear a tie-dyed tee shirt unless it was dyed with the urine of Phil Collins and the blood of Jerry Garcia."

Well, it's been a fashion trend. If the shirt fits you, you like it, and it's not too garish... why not?
Raquel Allegera did a lot w/ tie dye fairly recently (dresses, shirts, etc) and then there's SHABD -- I really love the two handwoven scarves I have of hers--there's a blue/grey one that looks like a cloudy sky in the best way.

Bought four tie dye shirts from Amazon. They're absolutely fantastic.

If we're talking tie dye a la japanese shibori - then definately yes.
I think an opinion to a question such as yours, can only be given if you provide pictures

I have a lot of fond memories involving tie-dye such as my mom dressing me in little tie-dye dresses as a kid and making shirts at summer camps. So in theory I do like it. But to be honest it depends on how it's dyed and worn. Sometimes it can be very garish but often tie-dye can fit a particular aesthetic that a person's going for, you know?

Pictures? Alright. Source for all images is Amazon.com.



This one is pretty unique with the black parts. Probably my favorite.



The blue-ish bits here are actually green on mine.



The colors are darker than they appear in the image. Very striking look.



The most reserved of the bunch. My second favorite.

By the way, my previous post is incorrect. I ordered five shirts, not four, however, the fifth shirt I received was not what I ordered and I can't find any images of the one I actually got, but it is cool also. Anyway, those are my new tie dye shirts. Are they garish and kinda silly? Absolutely, but so what? I wore dark colors pretty much exclusively for a long time and I am ready for something different. Another thing is that I physically fit the aesthetic. While I am a bit too hygienic and clean shaven to really pass as a legit hippie, my flowing blonde hair and slender frame make me look like a decent modern facsimile.

I like it when the tshirt in question is not what you would expect as a tie dye shirt, so made from silk, or an interesting cut, or when it is teamed with more formal pieces.

Joanna Hillman is a good example of what I'm trying to say.

The really garish coloured ones for me are always a no though.
