Take Your Tie-Dye Tee Beyond Summer — 3 Fall-Perfect Ways to Wear It
Tie-dye may strike you as a summer staple — it's rooted in summer-camp culture — but the trend makes just as much sense in the fall, and we're here to prove it. After falling head over heels for the Dip-Dyed Cropped Tee ($17) from the POPSUGAR x Old Navy collection, I did some investigating to find out if I could rock a tween size. I'm normally a women's medium, so I checked out the size guide at Old Navy and ordered an XXL in tween. The shirt has a boxy cut, and I figured I didn't need to worry about there being enough room along the chest; I was more concerned about the arms.
It fit perfectly — roomy in the chest and arms with a cropped fit — but more importantly, I've figured out exactly how I want to style the tie-dye trend for fall. Join me.
Layer, Layer, and Then Layer Some More
One of my favorite things to do in the fall is layer. As long as I'm warm on top, I'm usually perfectly fine in shorts. I layered a dark anorak zip underneath a gray vintage blazer. I wanted the dark anorak to pop against the tie-dye shirt ($17), then to really punch things up, I wore leopard-print oxford shoes and a bright beanie ($13).
