[Trend Report] Men in Ombre

Ombre fashion has been gracing the runway for years. Most recently, it has been predominate in women’s clothing, specifically dresses.... but lately, a new trend has come to the forefront: male ombre. Now, the faded pattern has transitioned into a unisex style.

 I'm always up for trying new things and this is something that will be sure to land in my closet sooner than later! 

The internet has been flooded with D.I.Y (do it yourself) ombre "dip dying"  projects:

.....and within this past month alone celebrities have been spotted in the pattern:
 Meek Mill rocked a $294 Balmain degrade two-tone ombre sweat shirt to the NBA 2K13 game release and Grand Opening of Jay Z's 40/40 Club. 

While in the West Village of NYC, Swizz Beatz was spotted spending some quality time with wife, Alicia Keys and son, Egypt in a $98 Marc by Marc Jacobs ombre polo and a $22 Reebok "Pump cap from his collection.
