Today, it seems like the dip dye craze is everywhere we look. We saw ombré hair to the max at Coachella, admired the two tone jeans and shorts in TopShop's spring line, and now Dries Van Noten is bringing dip dye to the runway. Certaintly, it looks like this trend isn't going anywhere anytime soon. While the multi-tonal hair trend could be fading away invariably soon, one aspect of the trend that we certainly hope will stick around is dip dyed denim, a classy alternative to tie dye. Tie dye and classy in the same sentence? Oxymoron, anyone?
With the dip dye trend, it's never been easier to exude that effortlessly cool, bohemian beach essence into an ensemble. Just pair some dip dyed denim cut-offs with a graphic tee, chunky platforms, and a wide brim hat to create a look worthy of the spring breeze or some summertime sun.
And the best part of our new obsession? Dip-dye Directions! So you can get all kinds of D.I.Y. up in it.
1. Make yourself some bleach, two parts water, one part bleach
2. Dip your garment into the mixture at the desired length and leave it soaking for 30 minutes; hang the garment on something since you don't bleach more than you want
3. After bleaching to the desired shade of white, soak the garment in the sink with two parts water and one part vinegar for 5-10 minutes
4. Let your garment dry, and enjoy!
