If you're going to dip your toe into one of this summer's hottest fashion trends, make it tie dye. It's got that cool California vibe, without dipping too much into surfer territory (let's be honest, not great for the office).
And it's so much easier to wear than you'd think. The key is to mix it in with some more understated pieces such as a denim jacket or pastel slip skirt.
Clearly everyone is loving it at the moment, judging by the Primark collection that keeps selling out. The high street store currently has three tie dye pieces, a satin halterneck, midi skirt and maxi, in the same pastel shades of green, pink and yellow.
Countless influencers have been spotted wearing it across the globe (like @anamanriqueg @pinketcetera and @meldarmon pictured here), either sporting the head-to-toe look (great for a holiday) or teaming it with their existing wardrobes.
Even if you're not into the trend, you must admit this is a subtle way to wear it.
Each piece is predictably budget friendly, ranging from £8 for the top to £18 for the maxi.
It might be a struggle to find it in your local Primark, but it'll be worth it if you get your hands on it.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.
Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).
Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.
Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
