We’re not sure when exactly tie-dye slouched towards fashion ubiquity — but, at some point over the past few years, the crafty pattern went from Woodstock-ian punchline to modern neutral. Today’s dye has swapped its once loose-and-groovy connotations for a more minimal, impressionistic, and even elegant reputation (aka less Laurel Canyon, more Echo Park Craft Fair).
