Tie-Dyed & DIYed

img_0745.jpg

Tie-dye is the process of tying, folding or twisting parts of a fabric (so they do not catch colour) and applying the dye on the fabric. Depending on how it has being tied up, there are countless number of methods. Of course I just bought a tie-dye kit and followed the instructions on the box. Tie and dye pieces of clothing have always been a summer classic, and I started my summer by dyeing two of my tops. The process was long, but worth the wait. So, I came up with one look for each top to share with you all.

Look 1

I was looking for something yellow since ages, and then the thought of dyeing my white school shirt struck me. I still wanted to amp it up some more, so, I cut it up and converted it into a bardot a.k.a. off-shoulder top. Wanting to keep all the focus on my top, I pulled back my hair into braids and kept the accessories contrasting, but still minimal.

Dhoti Pants- GoColours. Choker & Bracelet- Puducherry.

Look 2

For this look, I ended up dyeing the same shirt I wore in my previous blog (Defying Ethnic). I let the pants and jutties of the first look be, because the red colour of the pants complimented the red and blue of the dye very well. I could'nt resist wearing a lot of bangles to keep the fun going. IMG_0764.jpg

Tie-dye is perfect if you want to stand out bright, or just go subtle. Moreover, the cotton fabric helps beat the hot summer days, so try some this season.

Until next time.....STAY SASSY!
