Ombré: The hottest trend in 2014
Ombré patterns are everywhere. It basically refers to gradation of colour. These days you'll see that ombré is incorporated in almost everything in our wardrobes, on a garment, on any type of fabric or even on hair and nails! A monochrome that shows it's graduated variation in saturation of the colour. A lot goes into the creation of the right ombré tone. Subtle and bold at the same time, ombre is the hottest trend in the market right now. And I feel it's here to stay. So how to wear this trend right? With patience and a little bit of skill, almost any piece of ombre can create a palette of its own.
A cute ombré dress that is extremely pale at the hem and goes deeper in colour as it graduates till the shoulder straps at the top of the dress, is an awesome wardrobe must-have this year. The markets are already flooded with this trend; so go ahead, pick and choose! Above are some examples of ombré clothes that you might like.
Ombré nails are a type of manicure in which a gradient effect is created. A light colour on the bottom of the nail gradually blends into a darker shade at the top or vice versa. This is another French technique of manicure where the nails are shaded with various tints of a solid colour. It could be a bit tricky to create at first, but practice makes perfect!
Why not! I absolutely love the idea of sporting ombré on my feet. The faded effect looks elegant and chic and the DIY versions are a bit edgy but still so classy! Make your own ombré shoes at home using the dip-dye technique and make all your friends jealous.
This trend has been around since a while when it comes to hair but it's still hot. Ombré hair is sexy and requires minimal maintenance as the gradual tone of the colour needs hardly any re-work. Take a tip or two from JLo or Lauren Conrad who have completely nailed this hair trend with their gorgeously sombre, ombre locks. If you have been blessed with an Asian complexion – I'm jealous! Ombré goes best with a dusky complexion, especially if you opt for shades of mahogany brown, or dark chocolate going into a subtler dark blonde at the tips.
