Maybe it’s my inner hippie, maybe it’s because my mother once wanted to name me “Sunshine” (no, seriously, my name could have been “Sunshine Black”), but whatever the reason I unashamedly adore tie-dye.
Sadly, not everyone has the same fondness for the swirl of shades, and I suppose a big ol’ rainbow of colors can cause some unexpected acid flashbacks, so I think I may have found a solution of how I can rock adult tie-dye.
The secret is in the classic black & white print; by keeping it in such a neutral territory, people are less likely to assume I’m an unwashed Hippie, and more likely to think I’m an unwashed Hipster. (That’s better, right?)
Even though the pants are quite the statement piece, I’ve effortlessly worn them with heels and a blouse at work, sandals and a tank at home, and, as seen in this post, I’ve street-ed them up with chrome wedge sneakers, a spike-shoulder t-shirt, contrast-sleeve jacket, and a jewel & stud encrusted snapback.
