LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Acid Dye To D.I.Y

Let's Hear it for the Boys

You’ve had enough of your wardrobe. Everyone wears the same thing. As a matter of fact, you have the same thing as everyone else. Crazy but annoying, you need to find a new way to standout, to be different.

We all love personal projects, something we can wear, something we can call our own. Yes, buying the new fashion friendly item on your list is a must, but making something or altering a garment can give you pride. Not to mention, you get a little story to go along with it.

The web is filled with D.I.Ys from studding your favorite skinny jeans to tie dying your T-shirts. It seems like it’s every blogger’s bread and butter, maybe they got something right. It’s not that hard to change your wardrobe, especially if you’re a on a student budget. All you need is a little fabric dye, a bucket, some water and a vivid imagination to create.

To avoid being the same why not create what you want in your wardrobe and if that’s to scary why not find ways to change what you own, dollar stores sell studs that you can put on clothes for a chic rockers edge, fabric paints to make a one-of-a-kind emblem, or dyes to suit your fancy.

This week's Fashionisto sparked the idea after having a nice chat. He continued to explain that he dyes most of his own clothes. He then elaborated and concluded that acid dyeing is his favorite, epically on jean jackets. And think, he now owns a one of a kind piece.

What’s awesome with a simple dye job is that it can transform a garment and a look! This Fashionisto is sporting some pristine Vans. Immaculate white soles and retro red tops that match his red bulging bug eyes. What a vibrant statement! Next he has on some straights in black, a must have piece in any Fashionisto’s closet. Personally I like how the acid wash jean jacket and the graphic shirt go together, picking up the red in the bottom and top half. Together the style is easy going but artistic at heart.

Hint: Fashionistos, strike your flurry with D.I.Ys and make your wardrobe stand out. Tools to accomplish such a task can be found in your room, under your kitchen sink or at the dollar store. Just use your creative mind. To master this look, find accessory pieces that tie the whole outfit together, but don’t forget your latest creation to wear on top!
