Trendy mamas aren’t going with “Grateful Dead tie-dye” this spring, said Becky Hanf of Mission Fresh Fashion. Instead they’re choosing subtle, two-tone designs.

“This is the kind of tie-dye that you can dress up and go anywhere on the Plaza for a day or night,” Hanf said.

Tie-dye was a huge trend this fall, and it shows no signs of slipping off the style charts in 2013. Designers such as Rodarte sent a multitude of tie-dye down the runways, and celebrities such as Nicole Richie are currently rocking the hippie-inspired pieces.

Hanf said tie-dye looks can lend a bit of fun to everyday pieces when worn with simple separates that don’t scream, “Woodstock!” This year she stocked her shop with tie-dye skirts, blouses and scarves for a colorful return to warmer temps.

Style it: Don’t mix and match tie-dye prints, Hanf said. Choose one piece in a favorite color and keep everything else simple.
