As the weather warms up, deciding what to wear can be a challenge. You want to appear polished, but that can be complicated to do without overheating. However, it seems like there may finally be a solution in the form of Emily Ratajkowski’s tie-dye slip dress. The burgeoning style icon just demonstrated how this simple frock can be your hero piece for summer.
Ratajkowski has made a fashionable name for herself over the years thanks to a wardrobe that is chock-full of elevated basics, bold colors, and statement-making prints. When she’s not in an array of bike shorts and chic suiting, the model can be found in an array of classic silk slip dresses — many of which are by It-girl-loved brand Réalisation Par.
In a recent photo posted to her Instagram page on June 29, Ratajkowski stunned in a pink and purple slip by the Australian label. From the cowl neck detail to the bias-cut design, EmRata’s selection is every bit as stylish as she is. "Morning from a very, very special place,” she captioned the photo.
The actor kept her accessories minimal, opting for a simple gold pendant necklace and coordinating hoops, both designed by Jennifer Meyer. Her hair was pulled back into a relaxed updo with face-framing pieces and plenty of tousled volume. Simple, bronzy skin and a glossy nude lip completed the look.
Turns out, the Inamorata designer isn't the only one loving the trend lately. Tie-dye dominated the runways for the Spring/Summer 2019 season. Brands like Proenza Schouler showed a classic navy and white version, while Prada had a more vibrant, neon yellow color way on display. When seen on silk dresses like Ratajkowski’s, the pattern takes on a more bohemian, laid-back vibe.
Tie-dye isn't meant to be taken too seriously, so show off your playful side when browsing your favorite sites. Make the summer camp-inspired pattern appear more adult-friendly in muted colors like pink, purple, or blue. If you want to take more of a risk with your summer style, search for options in slightly oversized shapes and silhouettes. Going somewhere more tropical on vacation? A tie-dye caftan doubles as the perfect beach cover up. Ahead, The Zoe Report rounded up the the best dresses to shop right now, including Ratajkowski’s own pick.
