Men’s Streetwear Outfit: Matching Tie-Dye Set
Men’s fashion is evolving to include bright, playful colors— what better way to embrace this vibrant aesthetic than with tie dye?! This easy tutorial from Rob Hill will show you how to create a unique men’s streetwear outfit with the Tulip Tie-Dye Party Kit. His matching tie-dye set includes a colorful men’s tie-dye shirt and shorts for bold street fashion!
100% cotton T-shirt and shorts
Plastic wrap or sealable plastic bag
Step 1 Prewash, fold & bind fabrics
Before you get started on your men’s tie-dye shirt and shorts, prewash your fabrics to remove sizing. Fold your fabrics as desired, then secure with rubber bands. Rob Hill used the crumple technique to create a men’s streetwear outfit with colorful abstract patterns!
Step 2 Prepare tie-dye solutions
Prepare your tie-dye solutions by adding water to the dye bottles, filling to the neck. Replace the cap tightly and shake well until dye powder is fully dissolved. For this colorful tie-dye set, Rob Hill used black, orange, teal, turquoise, and blue dyes from the Tulip Tie-Dye Party Tub.
Step 3 Apply dyes
It’s time to add color to this men’s streetwear outfit! Place your fabrics onto a wire rack above a protected work surface. To create your men’s tie-dye shirt, apply dyes and use gloved hands to work the dyes into the folds of the fabric as needed. Create a matching tie-dye set by applying dyes in a similar pattern onto the shorts. Flip your fabrics over and repeat on the other side.
Step 4 Wrap and let set
Once you’ve finished applying dye to both the T-shirt and shorts, place your tie-dye set into a sealable plastic bag or cover with plastic wrap. Allow the dyes to set for 6-8 hours or overnight for more vibrant results. Your unique men’s streetwear outfit is almost ready to wear!
Step 5 Reveal!
After the dyes have set, rinse, wash in cool water with a little laundry detergent, and dry your men’s tie-dye shirt and shorts. Rob Hill completed this men’s streetwear outfit with neutral sneakers and a bright orange trucker hat to complement the bursts of orange on his DIY tie-dye set!
