Ombre at Herve Leger, Jonathan Saunders, and Lela Rose.

Style tip?  Ombre has to be one of our favorite trends, right up there with Dresses with Pockets.  It’s such a soothing design detail - reminiscent of seascapes, sunrises, and sunsets, depending on the color palette.  Wear your ombre dress, top, or skirt proudly - show off this gorgeous gradient!

What do you think?  Would you wear ombre?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    I love love LOVE that Herve Leger look. I like the skirt in the Jonathan Saunders but I think it just doesn’t fit with the top at all…

    I’d wear ombre. It also seems like you could use it for figure flattery (darker in the areas you’re not as comfortable with) if you found the right piece.

    Ombre has been around for a couple of seasons, it has been everywhere; dress, skirt, shoes, bag, so…
    I’m not considering wearing it and would never invest in serious ombre clothing…

    Sometimes it crosses into tie-dye. Not my favorite look, not again.

    I’m a yes on Ombre, but a no on Tie Dye…but it’s not for everyone :)
