Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no denying it: tie-dyes and dip-dyes are a massive trend this summer. I’ve always felt a little indifferent about it, but then I stumbled across these wonderful bang-on-trend A Alicia dip-dyed woven necklaces online and I finally got it. Tie-dye doesn’t have to be tacky and look like you’re on your way to a 70’s dress up party. It can be simple, fun and add a bit of colour to an outfit.
