Tie dye is trending on the runways of some of fashion's hottest designers this year, so it's no surprise that celebrities are out in full force sporting swoonworthy tie-dye fashion looks. One of our favorites so far is Gigi Hadid's casually cool POLO Ralph Lauren® swirl tie-dye T-shirt she paired with white capris and white sneakers (and a fab pearl necklace no less!) to let that shirt POP in all of its brilliant glory. Read more about Gigi's amazing ensemble at Teen Vogue. You can swoop up your own POLO tie-dye tee here for $88 on the retailer's website, or you can make your own POLO-inspired tee for a fraction of the cost using the Tulip® Neon 5-Color Tie-Dye Kit! Check out the deets.
- White 100% cotton T-shirt
- Optional: Stencil/letter cutting machine (OR you can create your own using freezer paper)
- Optional: Iron-on vinyl fabric OR black fabric spray paint (like ColorShot Instant Fabric Color)
Tie dye is fun to wear and even more fun to make! Create your own POLO-inspired tie-dye swirl T-shirt like Gigi Hadid wore using the Spiral Tie-Dye Technique and all of the supplies found in our Neon 5-Color Tie-Dye Kit. You can leave your shirt as is once it's been tie dyed, or you can take it a step further and add your own wording over the top. Maybe you have your own logo or brand, or a fun name your squad goes by ... or your favorite word ... the options are endless!
If you want to add your favorite word across your spiral tie-dye T-shirt, you can use your letter cutting/stencil machine to cut out letters from vinyl iron-on fabric, then iron in place. Or you can trace Collegiate font letters (or desired font) onto freezer paper and cut out with a craft knife to make your own stencil. Iron waxy side down onto your shirt for a temporary hold, then spray over the lettering with a fabric spray paint or fabric paint of your choice. Remove the stencil and let dry before you head out looking like a hot celeb in your new tie-dye tee! Pair with all white for a Gigi-approved look!
