Elegant Tie Dye? Really? Is There Such a Thing?

Is there such a thing as elegant tie dye? That’s our burning question of the day. Let’s start with a definition for “elegant.”¬†According to Google, it means “pleasingly graceful and stylish in appearance or manner.” Synonyms are “stylish”, “graceful” and “chic.” So, the answer to our question is a resounding “YES!”

And the bolero shape is excellent for those of us who are a little shorter in stature – say 5’6″ and below. Manya is 5’4″ and she has three of these in various colors. The proportions work great with us shorter types. At just $98, it’s a piece you’ll keep in your closet for years. The seafoam color brightens up the summer wardrobe. Wear it with black as shown here, or jeans, or navy, or khaki – lots of options. A simple white or ivory shell is all you need, and our bamboo tank in white is a great option.

Jewelry Tutorial

I often get asked how to accessorize, so from time to time I offer a tutorial on how to do just that. Take the photo above, of the seafoam bolero over a white tank top and black pants. It’s a very simple outfit, and is just fine all by itself. But look what happens when you add a great piece of jewelry…
