Rainbow Tie-Dye Jean Shorts
Bold, colorful and flat-out FUN, turn a pair of cutoff jean shorts into something a unicorn would wear with the Super Big Tie-Dye Kit.

Try embellishing your shorts with studs for added personalization.

Taylor Swift has been generating a ton of buzz around her new album "Lover" dropping in August, and we've been swooning over her fun pastel fashion since she stepped on the scene with her new look. One outfit in partciular that we can't get enough of is her pastel tie-dye jean jacket - shocking, right?!

Indigo Tie-Dye Jean Shorts
Indigo is trending big time in tie dye right now, and we can see why. It's a classic shade that adds a touch of sophistication while remaining down to earth and always beautiful.

Jean jackets are such a versatile wardrobe staple, and so are their vest counterparts! A denim vest goes with just about any outfit; up its cool factor with tie dye in one color like black (or as many colors as you like) and an easy pattern that can look totally edgy like the crumple tie-dye technique.

Tie dye doesn't just have to be about bright colors; you can keep it simple and still so fab with more muted tones. Give a white pair of jeans a seriously cool makeover with black tie dye and the string tie-dye technique. Now you're ready to rock tie-dye jeans all season long!
