Fashion Friday: Ombre Trend Alert

It’s Friday! I’m sure you are aware ­čÖé

So I have learned recently about this trend… ombre. Have you heard of this? It is everywhere. Literally everywhere. Hair, shirts, dresses, pants, skirts.. the list goes on and on. Pinterest has exploded with examples of this trend. I know ombre has been around for a little while but with Pinterest- individuals can learn how to make these garments at home now.

Ombre is French for “shadow” or gradual change in tone. In fashion that means the color of a piece of clothing gradually shifts to another color or shade. This color transition can be very┬ásubtle┬álike a dark purple fading into a light purple or it can be very drastic. For example, going from black to white.

Here is a video giving some examples of ombre from Fashion Week:

Ombre is the new tie-dye if you will. It is very easily replicated at home and can turn an old garment into a new hot piece!

Here are some examples.
