Steal That Style: Tie-Dye Trendsetters

Celebrity Baby Blog – Steal That Style

Bell bottom pants. Bare feet. Long hair. VW buses. Sound familiar? While some of those fads have stayed back in the 1960s, lately we have seen the much-celebrated tie-dye trend around every corner! Although the art of tie-dying can be dated back to 500 A.D., the bright colors have since became a signature of the hippie days. However, with celebrities taking a liking to the trend, you don’t have to pull out the peace beads to rock the psychedelic designs!

From what we have seen, the tie dye trend knows no boundaries. While we spotted expectant mama Jennifer Meyer Maguire out sporting her Gypsy05’s Organic Maxi Dress and Carnie Wilson showing off her baby belly with a blue tie dye maxi dress, the colorful swirls don’t end with clothes: check out Nicole Richie‘s tie-dye tote that has become a staple for the new mama-to-be!

We have found an eclectic mix of tie dye products for you and your little hippies — from funky sandals, maternity tunics, baby blankets and more — almost anything under the sun can be found in the colorful design. Baby sling lovers? We found a tie-dye sling for you! Not interested in the designs we listed? Make your own — we have even included a kid-friendly kit perfect for you and your family!

I clicked on this post to see where Nicole Richie’s bag is from 😦 Maybe I’ll make one myself (probably much cheaper anyway).
