DRESS CODE: Tulip Tie Dye Watercolor Scarf

Tulip Tie Dye Watercolor Scarves via homework - carolynshomework (12)Friends, I have such a fun project to share with you today. As part of the Tulip Tie Dye Your Summer fashion team, I’m demonstrating Tulip Tie Dye but not in the traditional sense. When you think of tie dye, you think fun t-shirts with spirals of bright colors. I used Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye which is America’s favorite tie dye, to create fashionable scarves in a watercolor effect.

Dyes are permanent and color-fast, so they won't fade in the wash. To achieve the watercolor effect, wet your fabric first. Have a jar of plain water and a paint brush along with your bottle of Tulip Tie Dye. This scarf started out light blue when I bought it. I applied the dark blue dye to one end and then used the plain water and paint brush to blend it into a lighter color.

For the blue on blue scarf, I’ll probably wear it with some of my summer tops like this pretty off white sleeveless top that’s trimmed with chiffon. I’ll add some chunky jewelry in cool tones. Some comfortable summer pants in either white or beige with my beige wedge espadrilles.

  4. Love. Love. Love. I guess I'm a hippie at heart because I still love a good tie-dye. These days it's the more refined version like your scarf, however.
