Fashion Slideshow: Groovy Tie-Dye

Catherine Strawn | July 31, 2008 - 7:00 pm

I used to tie-dye Hanes t-shirts at camp every summer, trying to create complex designs with multiple colors of dye. Basically, they turned out really horribly unless I stuck to just two colors. Then I forgot about tie-dying, maybe because I didn’t think it would fit into my “adult” life. But after seeing Drew Barrymore wearing a rainbow swirl shirt, I decided to revisit the psychedelic-ness that is tie-dye with some clothes that are tie-dyed, or inspired by it. And if you don’t feel like spending hundreds on a scarf or thousands on a dress (sorry, it was just too pretty to not include), go buy a box of Rit and follow Jessica’s instructions for a DIY version.Click the photos for shopping information!
