trend watch: OMBRE

Ombre is a French term meaning "shaded."  Usually a multicolored stripe, with colors graduating from light to dark or dark to light, it's a fun and modern take on tie-dye. 

Kerry Washington looks incredible in her ombre style black and red Dior gown which she wore to The Americans for the Arts National Arts Awards Gala. 

You can intrpret the ombre look into your everyday life with styles available right now on!  Try the Vanitas Jones Dress in Blue Silk Crepe.  Or break it up with separates from Tricky Threads, the Tank-O and Georgia-O Skirt can be worn together (click here to see) or separate.

The ombre look can also be applied to jewelry!  The Lisa K Ombre Necklace in Yellow or Pink have a very subtle gradient coloring.  These necklaces have lighter beads towards the clasps and slightly darker beads towards the center.
