Isabel Marant's spring 2012 collection was awash in tie-dye. I like tie-dye--but in small doses (as in this pair of Isabel Marant jeans), and if I wear it, I always counterbalance it with more polished pieces, so I don't look like I am running off to a Dead show. The jeansbelow, from Topshop, are a good way to get in on the trend without going overboard. I'd wear the jeans (I prefer theblack/white version on the left) with classic pieces, like a tailored blazer, or a black knit sweater, or a crisp white top. Doing so will tame them, make them less loud and rocker-y.
