Ombre Dip Dye Clothing Trend: Where to buy, how to DIY and outfit inspirations for the perfect ombre look

Updated on April 13, 2015

The Ombre Dip Dye Trend

Ombre or dip dyed clothing has been a big trend for a few seasons now, and this year is no different. The subtle fading from one colour to another will still be seen on all sorts of items this summer (including hair!), but most will be from a colour to white or in shades of pastel. It was seen all over the Spring Summer Catwalks and below you will find a few examples of how the designers used the look.

Now you don't need to go out and spend lots on this trend as it can easily be DIY'd or recreated at home for a very affordable cost. In this lens you will find a great selection of DIY ideas and tips for home dip dyeing and producing a great ombre effect, as well as items to help you achieve it.

Plus I've found lots of images for outfit inspiration on how you can wear this great trend this season, helping you style your ombre garments in some fun and stylish ways.

      I love ombre gradient died clothing. Love it in hairstyles too. Thanks for sharing. As a new lensmaster with only a few lenses under your belt, I have a wee suggestion. Add some single images between your modules (Amazon & eBay) to break up the links so it it doesn't look like a really lo-o-o-n-g laundry list of links. Use a Text Module or a Text with BIG Picture module and add your affiliate link to the product under the image. Need help with this? Send me an email through my contact button.
