Ombre has been on trend for quite a while in both interiors and fashion.  The gradation of color can be exclusive to one tone from dark to light or can blend from one color to the next.  Either way, it is a pattern that I fully enjoy in my wardrobe.  I have heard that many ladies are a bit intimidated to purchase an ombre piece in fear it will not be versatile.  I currently have four items that fit into this ombre/dip dyed category and I wanted to give you some inspiration on how to wear it.

Solid Texture

A three color ombre skirt in pink, ivory, and rust gets paired with a cream colored lace tank and hooded olive moto jacket with gray sleeves.  I am treating this ombre as a pattern and keeping the other two pieces neutral but add texture for interest.

Small Scale Patterned Top

By treating these ombre jeans as a large scale print, I am balancing them out with a small scale print top.  The small chevron pattern does not overwhelm the fun treatment on the pants.

Same Color Family

This dip dyed cardigan that I DIYed in a blue and green color palette was easy to go over this patterned top that contains similar colors.  The two blend together nicely to create a fun look.

All Solid, Two Colors

An easy way to wear ombre is to replicate the colors in the ombre piece with other items.  This orange and white cardigan gets layered over a white tank and orange shorts for a simple, yet powerful outfit.
