Long gone are the days when tie dye only meant hippies and visions of the Grateful Dead -- now it's totally en vogue and one of this year's biggest trends. Here are five affordable finds! 1. Tie Dye Hair Ties, Etsy ($1.50 each, pictured). I buy hairbands frequently (partly because I lose them all the time), but these are so pretty, I won't misplace them! ManeMessage hand dyes these beauties that also double as bracelets. I love two-in-ones.
2. Tie Dye Sheer Jersey Scarf, American Apparel ($20). A tie dye scarf is going to be one of my essential accessories for spring. This one by American Apparel is going to get really familiar with my neck, really fast.
3. Tie Dye Lurez Footless Tight, Free People ($10, sale). Look hippie-chic in these shiny orange-y tights. Pair them with some denim cut-offs and flats for super sweet style.
4. Op Racerback Tie Dye Dress, Walmart ($12). Um, hello... Walmart? Stepping it up! They may be more known for bulk items than fashion, but this dress designed by Op is way more adorable than a 24-pack of toilet paper.
5. Shutter Back Tie Dye Top, Forever 21 ($15.80). This gray v-neck tie dye shirt features a flirty cut-out from behind. Business in the front, party in the back! Dig it.
