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. Want to take a look at the new and improved tie-dye and incorporate it into your closet? Click on the slideshow to see some of my favorite modern tie-dye pieces!
