Greta Thunberg may have come to be known for her school-skipping climate change protest, but behind every Greta Thunberg is an Instagram influencer and fast fashion retailer like Pretty Little Thing or Missguided that plays into Gen Z shopping habits. Fashion forward Gen Zers look for clothes that look just as great on Instagram than they do when worn.
1. Tie-Dye Tee

Tie-dye quickly became a hallmark of counterculture during the 1960s. Seen on artists such as Janis Joplin and Jerry Garcia, it evoked feelings of free expression and free-spirited creativity.
Tie-dying has become an essential family activity during a pandemic for many families living at home and sheltering together, serving both as an act of resistance against their rights being taken away as well as quality family time with creative activities that get kids moving – making for the ideal activity to pass time during quarantines.

Tie dye goes with virtually every neutral hue you can think of, from denim and khakis to linen and sand-colored trousers. A simple black jumpsuit makes a chic statement! Tie dyeing also works great during transitional weather in Las Vegas as the evening temperatures can become chillier; plus it’s extremely comfortable too – perfect for festivals! This will definitely become one of your go-to festival looks.
5. Tie-Dye Pants
Now that festival season has officially arrived (KAABOO Del Mar in San Diego, Life is Beautiful in downtown Las Vegas and Ohana Festival on the beach at Dana Point, CA), now is the time to stock up on versatile outfits that can take us through. Ti dye pants like these roomy ones from H&M offer stylish comfort throughout your festival experience!
Tie Dye Technique: First, prewash the pants in warm, soapy water to remove any finishes that could interfere with dye absorption. Next, lay them out flat on a work surface and scrunch them tighter until you create patterns; the tighter you scrunch, the more white space will show in your finished pattern. Lastly, secure scrunching with rubber bands; let cool and sit undisturbed for at least 4 hours before proceeding further with this technique.
6. Tie-Dye Maxi Dress
Bring some warmth and color into your wardrobe with this vibrant tie-dye maxi dress from Pretty Life Girls. It features color blocking for an eye-catching, maximalist design – simply wrap each section when complete to prevent bleeding into one another! Use the Tulip Sunshine One Step Tie Dye Kit for fast and simple results that you’ll treasure throughout summertime! Rinse and wash as instructed – you won’t regret making this DIY project part of your everyday look!
8. Tie-Dye Top
Tie-dye t-shirts are the ultimate festival outfit essential. Wearing one will transport you back to Woodstock, rock ‘n’ roll psychedelia and all those other celebratory festivities of yesteryear!
For a contemporary take on this look, pair your tie-dye T-shirt with streetwear staples like a bucket hat, windbreaker, and ripped denim shorts. Sneakers also work great; just be sure that the vibrant colours can still show through!
Tie-dye tote bags offer another easy way to test out this trend without taking the full technicolour plunge. A tie-dye tote bag adds subtle color while looking great when worn with neutral pieces like white sneakers or black leather shoes – plus these custom items reduce overproduction and waste!
9. Tie-Dye Leggings
No festival season ever comes to a definitive end: KAABOO Del Mar recently wrapped, Life Is Beautiful is happening this weekend in downtown Las Vegas, Ohana Festival is in Dana Point the week after that and we can already anticipate next year’s lineup!
Tie dye leggings offer an exciting way to add patterns to your wardrobe and camouflage any sweat stains from workouts while giving an exclusive edge to athleisure looks.
Tie-dye leggings are popular choices among activewear brands. Lululemon released their Shibori print in 2017, Avocado created seamless tie-dye leggings with matching crop top bras, Bandier offered both long and capri length options; all sold out quickly; for an more cost-effective solution check out Carbon38 or Bandier for their patterned leggings options.
10. Tie-Dye Jacket
Tie-dye has emerged as a key trend of 2020. Once popular among hippie culture, tie-dye has found renewed relevance today, playing an influential part in modern society.
Tie-dye fashion trends are eye-catching and expressive, and you can pair this trend with almost any color to create an eye-catching ensemble. To further highlight your ensemble, consider adding splashes of color with accessories like sunglasses, hats, or jewelry for an eye-catching outfit!
As temperatures in Las Vegas may not be as hot as you anticipate, bring along a lightweight jacket so that you are prepared for any temperature fluctuations throughout the day. A lightweight jacket like this would pair nicely with graphic T-shirts and leggings!
