Over the years, the style at the VMA has gotten progessively crazier – Stuffed animal purses and meat dresses just to name a few moments. I don’t often take my fashion cues from the evening, but died a little over Kanye’s ombre denim shirt. The fade from dark to light turn an everyday jean top, into shirt worth talking about. The final look is prefect to wear over a short dress instead of a cardigan, or button up and pair with a bright mini skirt.

I just used my sink, but you can use a bucket for easier clean up.
First dissolve the Brilliant Blue in a full sink of water.

Next dip half your denim shirt into the dye, making sure you have a straight line across the chest. Let the shirt soak in the dye for 10 minutes.

Let your shirt dry to make sure you achieved the desired color. If not, re-dip in dye.
