The Worst Fashion Trends Of 2010

Single? Not sure why? Blame your closet.

How To Get The Tie Dye Trend Right

Apparently tie dye is a full-blown trend at this point; we literally can’t go a day without being visually assaulted by the stuff. Sometimes, the girls we see wearing it are pulling it off.
