Denim Trend: How Do We Feel About Ombre Jeans?

In these times of trend-heavy denim collections, I often can’t decide how I feel about a certain trend. I have to let it marinate for a while before I can make a call. Floral denim, for example? When I started seeing it at the previews in the fall, I was conflicted. Is this too 90s? Too busy? (As it turns out, it’s a little bit of both and in all right right ways.)

Colored denim was something i didn’t have to be sold on – I’ve been in from the start. Now, ombre colored denim? That’s another story. On one hand, I like that it’s quirky, unusual and a bit bohemian. On the other, I don’t know if I would struggle to figure out how to style a pant that can’t decide what color it wants to be.

Get the look: Genetic Denim shorts ($165); Genetic Denim skinny jeans ($198); Rich & Skinny Legacy jeans ($145); Siwy ombre cutoffs ($163); Bec & Bridge ombre skinny jeans (sale! $141).

    I feel OK about them. This is one of those trends that can be done very well or very badly. I also feel like it will be a trend that will trickle down the outlets and we will be regrettably seeing it 5 years from now.
