Denim, dipped and dyed

While the winter blues are finally settling at a steady pace in our fine city, any dedicated window-shopper knows that hints of spring and summer trends are upon us. Despite being bundled, stepping into spring offers a transitional trend that oozes cool in dipped died denim.

Covered almost entirely in bleach, denim jackets, shorts and pants are given a laid back look sure to usher into summer. Consider it ombre for you jeans. Inspired by pieces from Dries Van Noten's Spring '11 collection, if splurging on the original is out of your ‘eating ramen every night' budget, a chambray shirt and a little craftsmanship makes participating in this trend a breeze. Recycling winter clothes into summer? Take that, economy!

The current obsession of street style bloggers, the dip dye denim look translates seamlessly into the everyday wardrobe. While the idea of donning processed denim could have you feeling as though you're channeling '80s acid wash, this updated version takes a fresh, beachy vibe on the staple fabric. Already stocking the shelves at stores such as Forever 21, it's only a matter of time before campus is crawling with bleached denim diehards.
