Now that many of us have been stuck inside for quite some time, we’ve been finding new ways to entertain ourselves like baking, tie-dying, and one of my personal favorites—a little retail therapy.

By now you’ve seen tie-dye all over social media and on celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Ashley Tisdale. The trend is a fun and colorful way to boost your wardrobe, if you’re looking for tie-dye items, here are some top-rated picks.
1. These Vans shoes that have a cult-following
These slip-on shoes have nearly a 5-star rating and amassed 3,000 reviews on Zappos. Reviewers rave about the comfort and the many compliments they receive while wearing the shoes.The shoes are easy to get on and off, and are dyed in a subtle and unicorn-esue colorway—sign me up. One thing to note, multiple reviewers wrote that the shoes take a few days to break-in, so if you don’t want to wait (or deal with blisters), you may want to size up.
2. A lightweight button-down from Anthropologie
Need a lightweight shirt for spring? Then look no further. While some collared shirts are stiff and corporate, this one is soft and casual, making it ideal for daily wear. This shirt is light enough to be worn or it’s own or with a tank top. As one of the most popular shirts on Anthropologie, reviewers love that the fabric is thin enough for summer and airy. It’s currently available in three tie-dye colorways.
3. A tie-dye midi dress for spring and summer
This dress might become your new spring and summer uniform. It’s casual enough to throw on to run errands but also chic enough to wear for a Zoom cocktail party. As one of the highest reviewed dresses at Target, happy shoppers love the softness and comfort. It also looks great on many different body types, one customer writes, “I absolutely la la love this dress! Looks great on and way more than a $20 dress! Would definitely recommend it to any woman, any age, any size!”
4. The popular Align pant from Lululemon
PSA: You can get your favorite Align pant from Lululemon in tie-dye. One of our editors is obsessed with them and says they are the most comfortable leggings she has ever purchased. Reviewers rave about the buttery soft material and beautiful print. One first time buyer writes, “This is my first pair of Lululemon’s and OMG they are worth the hype! The most comfortable pants I have ever owned. So flattering!”
Camo print is on a wide variety of apparel this season, from tank tops to leggings and more. And it’s not just green anymore, grey and black camo print colorways have taken over, making it less military and more chic.
5. These shorts people are obsessed with
You’ll want to wear these trendy shorts for both running and running errands. According to the 1,000 reviews with an average 4.9 rating, the shorts are soft, comfortable, and cute.

One enthusiastic shopper writes, “I’ve been looking for a pair of shorts that can be my go-to shorts this season. These are awesome. They are so cute and stylish and I can wear them to work out in, but also look great shopping around town. I will be buying these in other colors.”
6. A camo tank from Athleta
This tank will have you coming back to buy at least three more. It’s designed for medium to high impact workouts but with a seamless-free construction, it’s equally as comfortable for lounging. Reviewers love that the tank is fitted but does not feel constricting. But if you like a loose-fitting tank you may want to size up.

Is animal print considered a neutral color? In my book yes. From leopard to snake print, you can wear it with just about anything and the trend doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.
