Ombre 2.0

Ombre, ombre, ombre. Everyone from celebrities to bloggers to everyday career girls have been rocking the trend for the fast few seasons.

I loved how effortless the look was – roots aren’t a problem when the color starts many inches from your head!

Besides the effortless mixing of patterns and color, I loved how women and men layered different pieces together for a look that was far from cookie cutter. With that type of inspiration, I used my sleeveless blazer (also worn here) as the statement piece and brought in a mix of fringe, herringbone and of course, my new “ombre” hair. […]
