Labor Day has come and gone, so Gwyneth and I want to know – What are you doing with your white denim? Surely you aren’t putting them up for next year. Right? Glad we’ve got that straightened out.
Today we aren’t posting about how to wear white year-round. (We figured you’ve got that down, but let us know if you want a few suggestions. We can do that too!) Instead, this post is about what to do with a pair of white jeans that aren’t so white anymore. If you’re like us, chances are you wore a pair so many times this summer that now they’re more “greige,” and not in the good n’ trendy sense.
If you think we threw our pair out, then you don’t know us very well! We picked up a box of Rit Dye and DIY’d a new pair of colored jeans for the bargain price of $1.00! We used the purple box straight-up, but you can use Rit’s color formula guide to choose which of their 500 color combinations you love most. We hope our finished product inspires you to pick your not-so-white jeans out of the Goodwill bag and drop them in a bucket of hot water and dye instead!
