Everything about Ombré - Revealed

"Ombré - A french term meaning 'shaded.' Usually a multi-colored stripe, with colors graduating from light to dark."
This is the third post in the June edition of the RANDOM Magazine. Sorry I haven't posted in such a long time!
As you may have noticed, today I will teach you everything you need to know about the famous trend- Ombré. Hopefully the definition above helped get a feel of what Ombré is, but if it didn't, here are some examples:

Ombré cake
Ombré hair
Ombré necklace
I bet you all now know what ombré is if you didn't before. I really love this trend :)

History 

Ombré was a new word in our fashion vocabulary during 2008, when it was a big hit. But even though it dated back to 1841 as a dying technique, the word was only in the oxford dictionary in 2005.
