Trend: Ombre

In Italian (and French) Ombre means shade or shadow. In fashion Ombre translates to shades of variegated or gradient color. It's accomplished by bleeding the dye in the making of the garment. The result is like a rainbow of one color. I am in LOVE with this technique as a upscale or updated tie dye. French or Italian, here's how it translates on Etsy:
