Trying the Trend: Ombré

Forever 21 ombre sweater

One scroll through Pinterest, and it's obvious that ombré isn’t just for your locks. From walls and wedding cakes to DIY curtains and coasters, there’s not much that hasn’t been touched by graduated hues. 
When I discovered this dip-dyed sweater, I decided it was how I’d finally try the trend. It'd be much faster than letting my roots grow out and easier than attempting any arts and crafts. But, the price was more than I wanted to spend for such a trendy piece (this isn’t your classic cashmere sweater here), so I searched online for a stand-in and found this look-alike from Forever 21. Admittedly, this isn’t a store that I frequent—I’ve always found it way too overwhelming, even when I actually was 21—but shopping their website is an entirely different experience. For a fraction of the price, I’ve gone ombré.

  1. oh Forever 21, it always solves the day! i have always loved the ombre hair- from hair to crafts. It's just so fun and not overwhelming since only the bottom half is usually any where near vibrant. I really like the blue hue you have here, too
