Incorporate Tie-dye into Your Everyday Wardrobe

by Alyssa Kind August 14, 2015

When people think tie-dye, they often think swirls of rainbow and eccentricity. And that is a huge (and fun) part of tie-dye style and culture. We often get customers who admire the hand-dyed clothes, but aren't quite sure how to incorporate such colorful, statement pieces into the wardrobe they already have. Rest-assured anyone can (and should imo) wear tie-dye. So this blog post is dedicated to showing you some ways that one of our Cali Kind Clothing staffers incorporates our tie-dye into her wardrobe and how it can be:
loud, fun, subtle, or whatever you want it to be!
We met up with one of our CKC Aptos employees to see how she styles our tie-dye into her every-day life. Kay was kind enough to meet with us on a beautifully sunny Santa Cruz (Aptos is a quick freeway ride from SC) morning to talk life, gym fashion and of course, tie-dye. Hopefully our fun photo-shoot and Q&A below can give you some ideas on how tie-dye can brighten your wardrobe and life.

I LOVE your outfit. Why do you like wearing our knot tops?
All the reasons! [Laugh] Really though it’s simple, but the cut makes it girly. It adds a softness to any outfit. But it's more interesting than your ordinary tank. I like how the straps are thin, but thick enough that you don't have to worry about your bra straps showing. It's a killer top that looks good with everything! You can pair it with jeans...like I'm wearing today... or with leggings, or shorts. You can dress it down to a casual look with jean jackets and sandals, or dress is up with nice jeans and a blazer. You can literally wear it with everything! You can also totally move the knots around if you want them in a specific place. Simply put, it's an effortless tank-top with a lot of flare.

So you chose two outfits for us! You wear CKC leggings casually AND to work out in?
Absolutely! They are so, so versatile. You can work-out in them, and they’re just a great pair of leggings! Our leggings make it really fun to pick out a top to pair with them. We do have single color tie-dye, like our fossil colors, which can be a very subtle look. I personally love to wear the spirals and several color leggings because then you can choose any color from them as the color for your top. Every time I wear CKC leggings people freak out about it, they love it. [laughs] Especially at the gym. People don’t expect to see tie-dye at the gym and i think it’s refreshing for people.
So these our one of our new arrivals. I adore them. Especially on you! Why do you enjoy wearing this new CKC style of pant?
Because you feel like friggin' Aladdin in them!!! [Chuckles] They're just super fun. They're loose around the entire leg. It’s only really fitted around the waist and ankles. You can move the ankle up, or down and because the ankle is cinched and has elastic they actually stay up. I LOVE these pants. They’re cozy, unique and the possibilities are endless.
I couldn't agree more, Kay. So one last question: Why do you like Cali Kind tie-dye so much, and what would you say to those who are hesitant to bring it into their every-day lifestyle?
Everyone has a favorite color; blue, red, green...and the cool thing about our tie-dye is that so much has EVERY color in it. It makes you happy. My brain get’s psyched when I'm wearing tie-dye. I love Cali Kind: we love our customers, we love our employees, it's just all about love. Our designs are on trend, but we always keep our dedicated customers in mind. Tie-dye encourages you to be peace, love, and everything... we hope that you wear your heart on your chest, sometimes literally with our rainbow heart design! haha We all have rainbows inside of us.
