The year 2020 has set the standard for comfortable style, and Mindy Kaling continues to lead by example.
“The Mindy Project” star hasn’t compromised her love of wearing bold colors while off-duty. She repeatedly rocks colorful sweats including a number of tie-dye sweater and pant combos. This week, the actress took to Instagram to show off her latest stay-at-home look to her fans, which included a blue tie-dye sweatsuit combo, complete with a pair of black fuzzy slides.
“Two piece tie-dye sweat suits are on the short list of things I hope we don’t leave behind in 2020,” Kaling wrote as the caption for her post.
Tie-dye is a colorway that continues to trend, despite the pattern being traditionally suited for spring and summer seasons in fashion. The fun and bold colorway has made its way to loungewear and athleisure as most continue to stay at home.
Tie-dye apparel and footwear continues to bring a little joy as we continue to social distance and quarantine to stop the spread of COVID-19.
For fall, opt for jewel-tone tie-dye sweats instead of pastels, like Kaling. The rich and warm colors will make wearing tie-dye season-appropriate as the weather outside gets colder.

The secret to Mindy pulling off such colorful combos while still looking stylish? Pairing her outfits with neutral-colored shoes. Black and white footwear go with just about anything, including brightly colored tie-dye sweatsuits.
You can find plenty of slides, sneakers and slippers in black and white combos, including fuzzy footwear like Kaling’s pair. Fuzzy slippers are not only comfortable but will keep feet warm as the weather gets colder.
Here are a few options inspired by Kaling’s latest off-duty look footwear, complete with a durable rubber outsole to keep feet protected and dry from the snowy weather.
