Trend Alert: Ombre Everything

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

It’s no secret that I have wholeheartedly embraced the ombre trend. (See this Instagram). It’s a great way to start introducing color into your wardrobe if you usually steer towards neutrals but want to brighten things up a bit for summer. If you are hesitant to try out the trend, start with pieces that are primarily neutral with a more subtle color gradation. I recently added the mint ombre sweater (pictured above) to my wardrobe, and I’m finding that it functions as a great neutral piece since the top half is entirely white. I’ve also added the following ombre pieces to my wardrobe, which I blogged about last week:


On another note, I’m now accepting ad spots for the month of June. If you have a website or small business that you’d like to promote, I’d love to help you grow your business. Sugar and Chiffon got approximately 14,000 page views last month and continues to grow each month. To see pricing or to purchase an ad, visit my “Advertise” page. Feel free to email me if you have any questions or would like a complete copy of my media kit. I’ve also been adding mad amounts of things to my Poshmark closet! I’m making a serious effort to downsize my clothes/shoes/accessories so that I no longer have to utilize the closets in the guest rooms in addition to the closets in the master bedroom. My sweet husband is so wonderful for letting me hog all the closet space. 🙂  Check out my Poshmark closet here and remember that most of the prices are negotiable!

    So you have totally opened my eyes to the Limited! I haven’t been in there in ages, but you always have such cute stuff from there. I think we may have to plan a shopping trip soon!

      Jane, The Limited is sooo good! They have the best sales. I actually just got a pair of polka dot jeans from there for $5. Can’t beat that! We definitely need to go shopping soon. Bar study is quite a bit more intensive than I was expecting (ha!), so maybe August/September we will have to get together.

      I really think you should get it! Also, I am seriously contemplating ombre-ing my hair right before the bar exam, kind of like a bar exam life crisis thing 😉 You should do it too!
