Warmer weather is in the air, and while we can’t wait to bust out the best that spring fashion has to offer, for most of us it isn’t time to rock our favorite floral shorts just yet. The solution? Create the perfect transition piece with something already in your closet! Jazz up one of your winter knits with this tutorial on creating the perfect dip-dyed sweater from iSpy DIY‘s Jenni Radosevich.

Adding a pop of color to your tired cold-weather staples will give your wardrobe a breath of fresh air while you wait for temperatures to rise—and keep you comfortable in the process. Dip-dying your basic cotton sweater gives it new life in a fun and creative way, and we love the endless possibility of color options.
