While tie- and dip-dye designs are most often associated with fans of the Grateful Dead, high-end designers are now getting into the act. Michael Kors showed a luxe leather dress emblazoned with a calming cloud-like motif, while Burberry served up floaty ombre skirts and dresses that are just downright pretty. Either way, the look is feminine with a bit of whimsy (and a far cry from a crunchy hippie). Here's how you can shop the trend now:
