Get your toddler excited about breakfast, lunch, and dinner with tie-dyed recipes they are sure to love. Using basic food coloring (even natural ones will work!) and a little creativity, classic recipes can burst with color and a rainbow twist. Make multicolored spaghetti for a fun weeknight treat or brighten up a party with a colorful cake. Whatever the occasion, you'll be sure to see a smile on their face and leave everyone curious about your tie-dye tricks!
In today's DIY, we're teaching you how to transform a pair of basic white cutoffs into a colorful, dip-dyed version! We've been in love with these psychedelic shades since Proenza Schouler's Spring 2010 runway, and instead of doing a traditional tie-dye, we're taking it up a notch with an amazing (and easy) ombre dip-dye technique. In just a few simple steps, you too can have a pair of bright, Summer-ready shorts — watch on to see how!
For anyone who doubted tie dye's versatility, you'll want to check out northend style's take on the trend. It's super chic, and a little unexpected — that's why it's tie dye for. A muted tie dye mini is softer than you'd expect paired down with a white tee and earthy gladiators. It delivers personality for sure, but totally fem, so-not-typical tie dye.
Congrats to northend style!
Everyone else, submit your looks, and I might feature you on FabSugar!
Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler love to fill their newly-launched online shop with limited-edition accessories and basics, and this season it's all about the tie-dye. If you missed out on the racer back tank the designers released back in April, now is your chance to score a limited-edition piece from the tie-dye collection (at $175 compared to the former $275). Available in fuschia, black, and green, the new designs are celebrated with a charming video featuring Proenza Schouler friend Vanessa Traina, filmed at Jacob Riis Park in Queens by Gregory Mitnick.
Summer doesn't officially start until June 21, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't get a head start on sunny essentials. Since FitSugar can school you on sun protection, we'll focus on the clothes. Luckily, one of our favorite Summer sites, Roxy, is currently hosting a superb sale. Select swimwear, dresses, hats, and accessories are marked up to 50 percent off. I think it's time for me to jump on this festival chic Gladsom Dress ($27, originally $40).
If you're looking for that perfect splash of psychedelic color, look to tie-dye bags to fill your whimsy. Paired with a neutral palette — we love how Sarah Jessica Parker contrasted her Halston Heritage bag with a white top and green utility pants — these bright bags inject extra oomph like no other. If a full-on sac is too much for your taste, try it out in clutch form.
If Spring skirts are too girlie for you, then I recommend taking the shorts route. Gwyneth Paltrow has been showing off her tall gams via sexy shorts lately. There's a variety of directions you can take with shorts, depending on the occasion — Bermuda, mini, baggy, fitted, solid, printed, and so on. If anything, get the three hottest trends: tie dye, board shorts, and baggy boyfriend denim.
Last night, we spotted Whitney Port at Coachella looking festively funky in a pair of tribal print shorts by PH8, a loose Joe's Jeans printed tee, and mortal combat booties. It's comfy and we love the print mash-up. A small chain bag, a macho watch, and colorful glo-anklets complete her perfect concert ensemb. Try out a similar look for your next Summer festival!
Be sure to see what H&M had to say about Coachella too, if it weren't for them we wouldn't have had such a bitchin' time!

Have you jumped on the surf trend yet? If not, these Aqua Tie-Dye Shorts (size nine, but more sizes are available) are a cool, affordable way. The color is rad, and the tie-dye effect is subtle, for a more stylish, less sporty approach. You down? You can buy it now for $9.99. The auction ends Wednesday, Apr. 21. Good luck!
Did you happen to check out Proenza Schouler's Jack and Lazaro on Martha Stewart yesterday? So cute. In fact, they featured this amazing online-exclusive Hand-Dyed Tissue Tank ($275), and Martha showed the audience how to do a similar tie-dye treatment. Here's the deal: I love Proenza, but I don't have time for a DIY or the money for the original version. What's a Proenza-loving girl to do?
