If you like to dress in the newest fashion trends hot off the runways, then look no further than some die and the white button-up hidden in the corner of your closet. Cupid has some fashion advice on how you can take your plain outfit to new fashion heights and get your groove back with a bright, tie-dye top:

1. Reimagine an old white shirt: If you’re like me then you have one white top tucked away in your closet that you almost never wear. You bought it on a whim, deluding yourself about how you would keep it clean, and that turned out to not be true. Don’t worry. Grab that old white shirt and hit up your local craft store so you can turn it into a beautiful tie-dyed fashion piece that will be sure to catch your friends’ attention. Pair it with some cute cargo pants, your favorite sunglasses, and a brightly colored tote and you’re ready to wow everyone this summer.
