Style a Stained Holi Outfit: Turn Your Spoilt Apparel into Something Cool!

Spring is the king of all seasons. It is the season of love, romance and colours. It is the season of spoilt clothes. Yes, Holi and spring go hand in hand, and each year, Holi takes away one of our clothes. Sadly, no one in real life plays Holi the way Bollywood promotes, and what we wear gets a weird stain. This year, I decided to something about this. No, I didn’t start a campaign to ban colours. Instead, I decided to recycle my Holi-affected shirt (which I think I had purchased several years ago from FBB). I played like the Bolly ladies as much as I could, with only aabir/gulaal, and made sure I wore white, because, that’s kind of mandatory, isn’t it? And finally, after I spoilt it, here’s how I managed to give my Holi outfit a completely new look! Watch and find out how to style a stained Holi outfit post all the colourful mess and turn the spoilt apparel into something cool!

So, now you know how to give your ‘spoilt’ clothes a whole new look after Holi. After all, it’s just colours; and, can colours really spoil anything? Not all. You just have to look at it as a new canvas, instead of a stained white shirt! If fact, if you’re anything like me and have the tendency to return home with the strangest of marks and stains on your clothes, if you have a pile of clothes stuffed in the corner of your wardrobe, waiting to be thrown away or be gifted to the cleaning lady as her new weapon, all because they have ugly marks, then you might as well unleash your inner artist upon the soon-to-be-discarded apparels, and surprise yourself!

Take a look at by crazy, colourful experiment, in the spirit of Holi:

I have used plain old acrylic/fabric paint here. First, I just dabbed the brushes on the shirt to spread the colours. Then, I sprayed some white and black paints using the brushes. And honestly, I’m pretty excited with the result! You can use proper fabric dyes if you want. You can try tie-and-dye, spraying, printing, hand painting or any technique you want. The idea is to hide a gucky stain behind the beauty of colours. Don’t think too much. See, I’m not a very artistic person, and I last painted in the 8th standard. And I was pretty bad at it. So, if I can turn an old piece of clothing into something colourful, you can, too! Because the fun part about this project is that you don’t have to be a brilliant artist to play with colours; even nursery kids know how to do it! So, go berserk, and bring out the artist inside you, in the spirit of Holi. You’ll end up with a whole new addition to your wardrobe!
