The ombre look has been showing up everywhere since it made its big boom in the hair industry a couple years back. Since then designers have been popping out new products from accessories, to clothing, to shoes and handbags, showing that fantastic color fade. We love the ombre look for summer and we’ve made a great list of ombre must-haves for this season! If you really want to go all out ombre, and haven’t seen our DIY ombre nails piece yet, check that out too! This summer is going to be all things ombre, so get on it!
We love this scarf for multiple reasons. First and most obvious is the notorious McQueen skull print. It’s the signature emblem found on multiple Alexander McQueen designs and a modern, edgy take on a scarf. Second, we like that the silk-chiffon fabric makes for a light, soft accessory to keep you from getting over-heated on a hot summer day. The best part about this scarf however, is the ability to transition it from summer to fall through the colors used in the ombre effect. The dark red melting into purple, blending into black, are the perfect cold colors to bring into fall. Definitely an investment piece and an ombre accessory must-have!

Loafers are always a great alternative to heels for the workday and are a comfy and stylish choice when walking around to run errands. We love the look of these white-to-green loafers with the patent leather finish. Just the name ‘watermelon loafers’ makes us think of wearing them at a barbecue or walking by the water on a sunny day. Definitely a summer must-have!

Flat top sunglasses have been trending for quite a few seasons now and we love Marc Jacobs’ incorporation of the ombre fade into this look. The colors are subtle and light, making them a perfect summer accessory.

We love these pants because they are a perfect day-to-night addition to your wardrobe. Wear them casually during the day with some gladiator sandals and a tank, and take them into the night with some strappy stilettos, a white blazer for a chic chick look or a leather jacket for some edge.
