The Ombre/Dip Dye Trend has taken over spring. Tights at Christian Lacroix have inspired several d.i.y. projects that have had varying degrees of success (check out the successes at Style Bubble & Fashionista). Cocktail dresses, bags, shoes, jackets, tanks, and cardigans at all price points have all embraced the trend. Here are a few pieces that have me thinking I’ll be all over this trend this season:

    I love tie-dye!!! I’m very excited to see it back in and think that it looks like this time ’round that it will be done fashionably and tastefully with no regrets. 🙂
