Tie Dye Dos: Kickin’ Spring Casuals

Lots of 70’s-inspired clothing looks graced the runways of Fashion Week, including bright color combos that will certainly turn heads!  The new look of tie-dye is a superb form of hippie-chic fit for all pre- and post-baby bodies.  Soft new designs steer away from a rainbow of Grateful Dead bears (save that for the next Woodstock).   Get into the newest versions of contemporary ombre dresses, swim and tie-dye tees you’re sure to love.

Tip: To make casuals elegant (not Woodstock), stick to a single piece of tie dyewear, keeping the rest of your outfit “calm” with a solid shade of flare leg pants or a straight maxi skirt!
