Tie dye

An unexpected trend that I've gravitated towards in the last year is tie dye. To me it emits a neutral vibe, perhaps due to the blending of various shades of similar colors, with an added twist (no pun intended). It's also something that can be worn casually to the park, beach or coffee shop, or dressed up for lunch or dinner with a friend or significant other.

Aside from my regular go-to items, I find myself being drawn to tie dye prints as the weather warms up, rather than bright colors and accessories. Also, tie dye has a very Colorado feel to me, so I feel comfortable in it in my new city.

Have you surprised yourself with a trend or style you like that seems unexpected? How do you incorporate it into your wardrobe?
