We don't know about you, but we consider hoodies a wardrobe staple no matter how old you are. A tie-dye hoodie is EVEN BETTER! Lightweight cotton hoodies like this one are perfect to wear all season long, like when the A/C is turned down way too low in your classroom or office during warmer months, or for throwing a cute jacket over in colder winter months; you can't go wrong!
Read on to see 4 ways you can trick out a simple white hoodie with awesome tie-dye patterns.
If you're in the mood to get extra creative with your hoodie, this is the tie-dye pattern for you! Combining two different tie-dye techniques, the pleat/stripe technique and the crumple technique, there's really no wrong way to do this. Just fold and pleat your hoodie where you want the cool striping to be (and secure with rubber bands from your tie-dye kit), then crumple the remaining fabric that's not pleated and start adding your tie dye! If you're using colors that mix well like red and blue, you can overlap them to create a section of purple. Totally up to you!
We used the red and blue dyes from the Psychedelic Tie-Dye Kit to create this hoodie.
Spider tie-dye technique? Say what? Before you get too weirded out, let us explain. The spider pattern is really just the spiral tie-dye pattern with black dye added over the top of one side while your hoodie is still wrapped and bound in the spiral shape. It ends up creating the super cool curved black lines you see on this hoodie.
You can never go wrong with a classic spiral tie-dye pattern! So easy to do and it always turns out so cool no matter what color combo you choose. You can keep it simple like we did here with just two colors, or you can combine up to 6 for super tricked out spiral tie dye.

Okay, remember a few examples ago when we said if you were in the mood to get extra creative with tie dye, that was the hoodie for you? Well, THIS ONE takes it to a whole new level ... So this might be the hoodie for you. Featuring like, a bunch of different colors, this hoodie takes it truly freeform by tightly pleating the fabric in a curvy direction, then crumpling the rest that isn't pleated and going a little crazy with dye colors. Get daredevil with it and have fun!
