Trending Fashions: Ombre

There are fashion trends that come and go but only a few that get to stay. One of those is the infamous ombre trend. Since the first years when it first became popular, ombre has developed to become more polished, sophisticated, and stylish. Whereas it was originally seen on clothing from pants to dresses, the trend quickly expanded to include hairstyles and accessories. Let’s take a look at how you too can embrace the trend.

What is Ombre Fashion and Why Is It in Style?

Ombre literally means “shaded” in French and is defined as the blending of one color hue to another, usually graduating from light to dark. This style became popular in the 1960’s alongside the tie dye era, and quickly developed to what it is now. The best part about the ombre trend is that different colors will create different effects in its wearability, meaning that you can easily take it from casual to elegant.

Ways to Wear the Ombre Trend

Ombre fashion is versatile enough and perhaps one of the few color trends that can be worn year-round. The key to wearing ombre is keeping it simple. One ombre clothing item is statement enough, so stay clear from mixing patterns or conflicting colors.

One last tip: don’t be afraid to play with different colors or clothing items. Opt for bold, lively colors in the Spring and Summer seasons and try out darker hues in the Fall and Winter. As a rule of thumb, if you’re wearing ombre its best to keep the rest of the outfit neutral.

Ombre in Modern Hair Styles

When it’s not in clothes, ombre dominates hair trends. From beautiful gradient colors that flow from the tips to the root, to subdued balayage strands. Similar to the effect on clothing, hair stylists use a chemical technique to create a color contrast that usually starts darkest at the roots and blends into a lighter color at the tips. The appeal of this hair style can be attributed to its low-maintenance and a quick way to alter your look without going overboard.

Ombre Colors in Interior Design

Whereas it is more likely to spot ombre applications in fashion and beauty trends, the iconic color blending can also be applied to interior design elements. From wall art and decorative objects to carpets and even furniture, the ombre trend is sure to elevate the feel of your home. So, if you’re looking to give your interiors an upgrade, look no further than one of these options and remember to keep it simple!

Other Ombre Trends

Aside from clothes, hair, and furniture the ombre trend also thrives in the beauty industry and can often be seen on makeup trends and nail designs. In fact, ombre eyeshadow is one of the dominant eye makeups today. It’s a classic look that involves blending several shades of eyeshadow, often with specialized brushes, to create a beautiful showcase of gradient colors.
