I like how bold and almost graphic they are – but will I feel this way in six months? A year? I’m not sure. Ombré has been around for a while, and when I get bored of something, I don’t want to see it again for at least three years. Dropping a few bucks on a pair of jeans might be no big deal for someone with a stable financial anything, but for me, it has to be really worth it.
