Ombre's turn...

Ombre's turn...

We have seen quite a bit of colorblock over the last couple of months, so I thought it was only fair to give ombre, colorblock's sister, some attention.  Ombre:  the gradation of hue from light to dark.  Because ombre is usually a more subtle color change than colorblock, it may be easier to wear for those wanting to experiment with more than one bright solid color at a time.  Think of it as a version of a print.

  5. The ombre interiors are such a nice addition to this roundup! Loving the Charlotte Ronson dress too. Between ombre and color blocking I'd have to go for ombre! But then again, maybe I'm biased because of my hair ;)
