Shades of Ombré


January has plenty of grey, overcast days, but those shades of gray can be a fashion inspo! Finding these new-with-tags (NWT) Banana Republic ombré skinny jeans (Retail: $79.99; Goodwill price: $10) at a local Goodwill Keystone Area store was just the start of this look. The word ombré comes from the French word “shadow”. It is the transition of a lighter shade from a darker shade. I loved the unique ombré shades and decided to keep the look mostly monochromatic.

Another NWT find was this mixed media sweater from Stitch Fix brand, Skies Are Blue (Retail: $62; Goodwill: $8.50). The front is a solid black sweater knit while the back has a black, grey and white ikat pattern with accents of orange. I like the versatility of the comfortable sweater. I could pair it with trousers for the office or a skirt, tights and boots. The printed back gives it some flair.

I added pops of orange by accenting the outfit with a beaded, shell necklace ($3.97) and a Jessica Simpson gold-studded clutch. I have used this colorful bag in several blogs and it is a perennial favorite of mine when I need to brighten up an outfit. (Retail: $60; Goodwill; $6.97).

Finally, one of my best finds lately are these Doc Martens! They are different from the traditional lace-up boot. This cherry red boot is called “Teresa” and is a discontinued style of Doc Martens. When new they retailed for $130, but I snapped them up for $9.99 at Goodwill Keystone Area! What a find!

Grey winter skies don’t have to bring you down – let them inspire your wardrobe! Goodwill Keystone Area stores offer a range of monochromatic colors to keep you looking anything but dull and drab in these winter months!
