savvystyle: ombre everything - denim

For those of us who are tired of the same old blue jeans look ombre denim is the quick and simple answer. Jean shirts, jean jackets, cut-off jeans, skinny jeans are all sporting the gradual fading affect know as "ombre". The french term means having colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark. The technique can be seen not only in denim but in hair, nails, makeup and any type of apparel.
Ombre blue denim is everywhere and can be seen on men and women alike.

Add color ombre denim to brighten up an outfit.

There's nothing like using an ombre skinny jean to add a little pop of color to any outfit. And for those who think it's taboo to wear white denim after labor day, you might feel a little more comfortable wearing ombre jeans that are only partially white. Another advantage of the ombre affect is using the color fading to accentuate and enhance curves. Depending on what the goal is, if the darkest color is on top, covering the hips, it will slim down the hips. And for those looking to add a little more curves can go with the lightest color from the waist to the knees and the darkest color from the knee down.

Ombre is all the rage and not going anywhere for a while.
