Trend Spotting: Ombre (feat. Jennifer vs Angelina)

Posted in fashion, general, trends tagged , , , at 12:35 am by classyaction

Decisions, decisions.

Skinny or flared? Belted or loose? Heels or flats?

In a world filled with fashion choices – one dilemma which ladies won’t need to worry their pretty little heads about is soon to be colours.

This season, CA senses that ombre, that beautiful French word, is gradually creeping into our colour palettes. Ombre is a beautiful wash of shades and shadows that carries a subtle flood of colour throughout material, letting you play with a kaleidoscope of colour, while still retaining a soupçon of elegance.

Theoretically. CA has yet to see a truly gorgeous ombre creation that doesn’t scream high school prom, but time will tell. After all, skinny jeans never really won full marks in this book, but that doesn’t stop the trend from barrelling on.

From Angelina Jolie’s appearance at the SAG red carpet with everyone’s favourite accessory – Brad Pitt – to Jennifer Esposito’s sadly hideous getup – mark my words! Prom season will be awash with the colourful schemes. But as with every pattern, there’s a right way and a wrong way.

So fashion match-up with everyone’s favourite dueling names: Jenn or Angelina?

Not that Jenn, in this case.


CA prays you can tell the good from the not-so-good.

The colours? Lovely.

Having your bra showing? Tacky as hell.

Brad Pitt? Beautiful.

Classy Advantage: Angelina, 1. Jennifer, 0.
