While biker-inspired slashed details and cutouts have been the hottest thing in apparel and accessories for awhile now, I've never seen it done in the polished way that this Romygold Messenger Bag manages to pull off. Instead of haphazard slashes, as if someone had just taken a pair of scissors to it (which is sometimes cool, but maybe not when it comes to a nice leather bag!), the evenly-spaced cutouts make it look neat while still maintaining its edginess. I also love that the bag eliminates the need for any overdone embellishments like studs, rhinestones or buckles -- a rarity when it comes to most biker styles, which are often too hardware-happy. While it's certainly not what I'd expect from a "messenger" (but I guess that's just my book bag stereotype talking), who cares about what they call it, really? If black is a little too predictable for your taste, it also comes in off-white and metallic chocolate!Price: $575Who Found it: xgalexy was the first to add the Romygold Biker Slash Messenger to the Hive.

Before you start questioning my knack for keeping up with the latest styles and trends, you'll need to re-think your ideas on tie-dye. While tie-dye used to conjure up images of brightly colored bursts on white tees (like the kind you made at the after-school program in elementary school) and is generally linked to hippie attire and reserved for those still stuck in the 60's and 70's (in both mindset and style), tie-dye as of late has gotten a modern make-over. Using an edgier or more wearable color palette, as well as differing patterns and shapes, modern day tie-dye is now more chic and stylish than tacky and dated. Whether it's as a water-color like print on a fluid tank, or as a unique and trendy way to add interest and texture to a hot pair of jeans or leggings, there's no denying that tie-dye is popping up everywhere ... and it's staying! The new, made-over tie-dye designs are youthful, versatile and totally fashionable and soon, over-sized rainbow tie-dye shirts will just be a thing of fashion-faux-pas nightmares.
