Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez were on The Martha Stewart Show yesterday to tie-dye scarves and show off select looks from their spring 2010 surf-inspired collection. Today, the Proenza Schouler designers released a limited-edition tie-dye racer tank available exclusively at ProenzaSchouler.com. The hand-dyed tops are all unique and — compared to their collection counterparts above — are very reasonable at $275 a pop.
Tie-dye seems to be a resurging trend in the fashion world — one that even Tory Burch is heralding — but I'll certainly never be adding the groovy style to my wardrobe. It seems, though, that the dip-dyed material may be gaining momentum in the world of interiors, too. Anthropologie's new Ocean Swell Curtain ($138-$198) has 1970 written all over it. Would you bring these curtains into your humble hippie abode?
While galactic shimmer is perfect for nighttime glamour, galactic jackets are ideal during the daytime. Girl about town and London-based stylist Caroline Sieber showed off this trend during Paris Fashion Week wearing a cool blue out-of-this-world printed jacket. Such statement jackets don't need a lot of accompaniments; a cute frock or dark skinnies would do. But leave it to Caroline — who's had past stints styling Emma Watson — to mash up her galactic wonder with a printed top. Want to get the same look? Abstract and cool-hued tie-dye patterns will take you one step closer to Pandora . . .
I've said it before, I'll say it again: Proenza Schouler's Spring collection kicks ass. I dream of a Spring filled with tie-dye, aquatic hues, and chic surfwear. Unfortunately for me, my wallet isn't as sophisticated as my taste. But there's hope; a Fab reader tipped us off to a Proenza-esque piece from Target, similar in print to this top, that will look amazing come sunny days.

There is nothing hippie or Seventies about spring's colorful tie-dye prints. Inspired by the worlds of surf and skate, the acid-hued, tie-dyed fabrics seen on the runway at Proenza Schouler were cut into sexy racerback tank dresses and micro minis. Who What Wear Daily recently took matters into their own hands by recreating a more affordable version of Proenza's technicolor silk knit sweater with this do-it-yourself project from Erica Domesek of P.S. I Made This.
Her nude J.Mendel was pretty but this is straight up fun. Kristen Stewart hit the London red carpet for her new flick, New Moon. While most are focusing on her chemistry with Robert, I'm zooming in on her Proenza Schouler Spring '10 look. It's youthful, spunky, and so is Kristen. I only wish the top were a tad more fitted. I loved the scuba sandals on the catwalk, but Kristen's black patent pumps work as well. What do you think of Kristen in Proenza?
Last night at the Surrogates premiere in LA, Rumer Willis proved she can pull off casual cool as well as fancy. Standing proudly alongside papa Bruce, the stylish cutie paired a body-con black skirt with a rad tie-dye print top — notice how it complements her auburn locks. Sophisticated black-patent pumps complete her look. Aw, don't they look sweet together?

You guys never cease to amaze me with your creative photo ops. vikandala took a break from washing and drying to show us her outfit. Her tie-dye DIY is insanely fresh and I adore the suspenders. Who'd ever thought doing dirty laundry could be so much fun?
Here's what she has on:

Congrats to vikandala!
American Apparel is no stranger to kooky fashions, and this Tie-Dye Cotton Spandex Harem Pant ($44) is one of the many. Harem pants are already risky, but throw tie-dye in the mix and they're beyond funky. I can totally see a fun-loving, risk-taking gal rocking them with cool ankle booties. Are you that girl, or hell no?
This one's for all you ballsy girls, myself included. These J Brand Out of Control Jeans ($209) are just that — OOC. The dark tie-dye rinse is an uptown ode to its hippie origin, and I'm sweet on the slim straight leg. Yes, Balmain has reignited this whole craze, and I can't get enough. However, my wallet won't budge for such a fleeting trend.
