Ombre Trend - Inspiration Board

Pin It  
Since I started my Etsy shop and this blog, I've become much more aware of fashion trends than I ever was before and I've learned terms I'd never even heard of. Let's face it, as a stay-at-home-mom, New York's Fashion Week is in no way going to affect my everyday life. But every once in awhile I come across a trend that I just love (even if I am late to the game) and this inspiration board is dedicated to my new favorite trend: ombre!

According to FabSugar, ombre comes from a French word and means "shaded." The ombre trend of late has been seen in nail polish, dresses, even hair. Here are a few amazing ombre finds from Etsy to inspire you!
