Social distancing has brought out the creativity in many people. Whether it’s channeled through baking sourdough, putting together a puzzle or whipping up some actually whipped coffee, we are all taking on creative challenges to stay entertained during this needed phase of social isolation. And the resurgence of tie-dye certainly fits into that mold. 

Tie-dye was coming back as a fashion trend long before March shifted everyday lives around the globe. From celebrities sporting pastel tie-dyed sweatsuits to Ariana Grande’s “God Is A Woman” merch, there were clear indications tie-dye was on its way up in the style realm. But the go-to clothing craft exploded in popularity online after social distancing efforts went into effect. Now, TikTok teens and Instagram baddies are all in on the DIY trend that kills time — and creates killer results.

Tie-dye kits are everywhere, but any former ’90s kid knows not all dye is created equal. Sometimes, the dye is too runny, creating a muddy result. Sometimes the dye appears to saturate perfectly, then washes right out when rinsed. Finding a proper kit is key to a good tie-dye result, but it certainly isn’t easy.

Due to the popularity, tie-dye kits are selling out all over the internet, and it’s left many struggling to find a top-performing set. But top-rated kits are still out there, giving you color options no matter what your style is. Whether you want a modern pastel look or a wacky traditional rainbow, check out these kits that will give your boring white tees and socks a makeover.
