The Ombre trend in fashion really started to gain momentum in the Summer of 2008 but there is something about it that keeps me coming back for more! When done correctly, it gives off that ethereal bohemian vibe while still being sophisticated, crisp and clean. It adds instant dimension wherever it’s applied. It’s the solid that is not a solid and nothing gets better than that! Typically, when people think of Ombre they think summer. Luckily, for Ombre freaks like me the trend translates nicely into fall as well. Below are just a few of my Ombre favorites to carry you into Autumn. Enjoy!
