Ombre (or shaded dyeing) is a fashion trend that’s been around in both hair and clothing, but how to wear it so it’s flattering and what to be wary of so you don’t buy an unflattering garment.
The thing to remember is the rule of advancing and receding colours
- Dark colours recede and make things appear less noticeable
- Light colours advance and draw attention.
So look for an ombre that is lighter where you are happy to draw attention, and darker where you’d like to camouflage the area.
Let’s look at the pics in the image above and analyse who they would work for.
