Quick! Erase all memories of over-sized rainbow tie-dye tees paired with hemp necklaces and Birkenstocks—we've got three BEYOND adorable ensembles that'll make you rethink the '60s style. From tanks to skirts to pants, anything can be transformed into a dye-lightful (heh, sorry) staple. We found three bloggers who rocked tie-dye in ways that are more hip and less hippie.

Skele-toes

The entire MTV Style staff in Skele-Toes.

Here at MTV Style, we wear heels or platforms...basically every day. We break our backs, pulverize the cartilege in our knees, and get nasty blisters all for the sake of FASHUNN. So today, we decided to do things a little differently. We've ditched our sky-highs for some Fila Skele-Toes, aka "those toeshoes." We're chronicling our adventures via the MTV Style Twitter AND our personal Twitters. Follow the shenanigans with the hashtag #daywithoutheels. We can't believe how short we all are. The air is so thick and luxurious down here...

THE ORIGINAL TWEET:

Today's assignment: Wear these gross-tastic toe shoes ALL DAY and report any feedback. HOW DO YOU LIKE OUR FEETZ? http://twitpic.com/64einuless than a minute ago via Twitpic Favorite Retweet Reply

Urban Outfitters put nine Pratt Institute students through a sort of mini Project Runway-esque competition this summer. The challenge was to design a dress with the store's customer in mind, and the prize for the top three designers would be the chance to sell their dresses at Urban Outfitters this fall. However, the catch (because you know these fashion competitions are always throwing a birdseed-only type of curveball) was that the designers had to work strictly with jersey. So, almost like a "turn this t-shirt into a dress" kind of deal where the biggest weapon in your toolbox is imagination. Top that, Heidi Klum!

We know what you're thinking—overalls? REALLY? The answer is: Yes. Yes, yes, and more yes. We're here to bust the myth that overalls are only reserved for farmers and fourth graders because we've got three shining examples of how to make them work. And not just like, "Oh, those overall are cool, I GUESS," but like, "Whoa. You're the best dressed person in this room. And you're in overalls. Sweet!" Let's dive a little deeper into these one-piece wonder ensembles!

Beyonce Best Thing I Never Had

At 29 and with a lifetime-sized career under her belt, Beyoncé knows a thing or two about making mistakes...and then getting it right. Which is why she is giving scorned (or totally satisfied) fans the ability to star in an alternative version of her supreme kiss-off video "Best Thing I Never Had." The original tells the story of a young Bey (fictional or not) who prepares for her wedding day. As she gets ready, she tells her former prom date, a dismissive, creepin' jerk in a crown, that he "turned out to be the best thing (she) never had." In fact, she's moved on with a hottie who treats her, and her appreciation for flouncy white dresses, with the respect she deserves. A feeling exactly everyone can relate to, amiright?

By uploading happy wedding photos or disastrous prom shots (no word on whether the inverse works as well) to Twitter or Flickr with the hashtag #BeyonceBestThing, Beyoncé fans can participate in a crowdsourced, fan-made reimagining of the "Best Thing" video. Expect tons of awkward prom peplum and blissful black-and-white nuptial photos (and, of course, smug feelings of closure and reconciliation).

If there's one thing we love, it's ROMPERS. Printed ones, solid ones, cutout ones, ones with collars—ALL of them. There's no onesie that we say no to! It seems that some fierce fashion bloggers also share our affection for the one-piece wonders, so we found three looks that we love—all in summery floral patterns. Check out more about these stylish ladies' outfits below! Warning: You maaayy want to hide your credit card before reading on.

DANG, it's hot in herrr! Like, to the point where walking literally one block equals a giant sweat moustache, runny mascara, and the equivalent red-faceness from an intense 30-minute jogging sesh. It's triple digits out there, people. Luckily, there are some ways to beat the heat and STILL look cute—our favorite way is with an oversized sun hat! Not only does it keep you cool during a scorcher, but it's instant SPF. Plus, it adds a too-cool-for-school '70s vibe to any ensemble in a snap. Check out how three cute-as-a-button (and non-sweaty) fashion bloggers sported their sunny chapeaus!

MTV Pitchfork Street Style

This weekend's Pitchfork Festival in Chicago was super hot. Yes, of course we mean the sweltering, near-100 degrees and the heaping piles of buzz bands (both "hot" indeed), but we are mostly referring to the hordes of fashionable, adorable concert goers. The blazingly rad styles we spotted gave the high noon sun a run for its money, and we've got to give it up to the ladies who let us snap their picture. Not only were they on their feet all day (sensible shoes!) and sweating their skin off (loose clothing!) but each one brought their own special brand of rocker cool to the concert. (For more on the festival, check out our pals Refinery 29's amazing Chicago blog.)

So not only did we get schooled on how to dress for steamy weather (Pitchfork staples included wrap sandals, bright prints anchored by solids, and leather satchels), but we spotted some styles we are going to be stealing all summer long.

EMA, Twin Sister, and Zola Jesus Perform at the 2011 Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, Illinois.

Summer festivals, like this past weekend's Pitchfork Festival, ain't a walk in a densely populated park: the crowds, the lines, the endless barefoot dancing. And the girls who brave the temps to get onstage to entertain the sweltering masses have it the toughest and earn our utmost respect (and gratitude. And space on our iPods). Not only do they perform with the sun beating down like a spotlight from hell, but they all look so cool belting out songs it almost looks easy (it isn't. At all).

We caught up with emerging rockers EMA, Twin Sister, and Zola Jesus in Chicago this weekend to hear a little bit about their music and a lot about their stage garb of choice. Not only do we have three new girl crushes, but each of these ladies has a style as distinctive as their sound.

The time has come, muggles. The Harry Potter series has OFFICIALLY come to a close with the release of its final film Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2—the last installment over the course of *sniff sniff* TEN YEARS. Last night, the most hard-core fans from all over New York drove, walked, ran, flew their way to the Lincoln Center for the midnight premiere of Harry Potter in full fannish cosplay regalia. From handmade costumes to limited edition merchandise, Team Potter BROUGHT IT (perhaps with the help of our *ahem* amazing, all-inclusive learn how to dress like your favorite Harry Potter character guides? Maybe? Yes? No? YES.) Check out the video below to see what cute and crazy outfits were featured in the super-duper-long line of fans (it wrapped around the building four times. Yeahhhh.). Girl nerds rule.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
