From Hair to Hanger: The True Story of Ombre


The trend that flooded hair salons with girls trying to look like runway models and the Kardashian sisters is now trickling into men’s (and women’s) fashion. The subtle fade from dark to light, known as ombre, is doing the same thing for clothes as it once did for hair; the dying trick gives depth and dimension to something that was once monochromatic and plain.

My prediction is that like the hair trend, this probably won’t survive more than a year to a year or two, so don’t let yourself overspend on this trend. Choose basic items like t-shirts, pullovers, or button-downs at reasonable price points. There is no need to spring for a $300 ombre cashmere sweater only to have it be out of style the following year, but that’s just me.
