Unlikely Closet Staple is made in partnership with MATCHESFASHION. It's a series in which we explore some of the less likely but no less essential aspects of the modern wardrobe.

Oh, you thought tie-dye was over because summer was? Wrong. While tie-dye clothing is admittedly a natural fit for the bright sun of summer, we’d argue that it’s even more necessary during the depths of fall and winter. After all, dressing is a form of communication and, throughout the darker months, offering a bright lift is an act of sartorial kindness to those around you. Being the upstanding citizens that we are, tie-dye is an unlikely fall/winter staple for us this year.

Plus, when we say that you should keep your tie-dye fits running deep into fall and winter, we don’t mean that you need to be shivering in your warm-weather Cuban collar shirts and the like. In fact, the Fall/Winter collections at MATCHESFASHION are stacked with winter-ready tie-dye sweaters and jackets.

From cozy sweats and cashmere socks by Les Tien and The Elder Statesman to a technical waterproof by 3 Moncler Grenoble, tie-dye touches all sides of the fall/winter spectrum and we’re here for it.
