Fade Away Ombré

Pink Slip Ombre

As ombre shades fade from light to dark (or vice versa), the time has come to let this once drooled over trend fade from our wardrobes.

Pink Slip Fashion recommends experimenting with color changing hues via colorblock. This trend is still going strong and you can find a myriad of bold, divided colors on statement clutches, dresses, and straight leg pants.

Dressing With Breast Cancer: Flatter Your New Shape!

Catching the tail end of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Pink Slip Fashion wants to show women who have undergone a mastectomy how to dress their body’s post-surgery, returning feelings of confidence, femininity and sexiness with trend-forward styles.

Triumphing against unimaginable difficulties that come from fighting a life threatening illness can oftentimes extinguish self-esteem.  Coping with the fact that your body is irreplaceably different becomes a heartbreaking challenge and emotions become especially heightened after looking in the mirror.

As a person with relatives who have suffered from this distressing and time-consuming illness, I know it’s a trial for breast cancer combatants to find a sense of inner peace, sanctity and comfort.  With this post, I hope to bring some encouragement to these fighters’ indescribably different lives by providing a few styling tips to renew self-esteem and welcome back a restored sense of empowerment.

4 Irreversibly Cool Styles that Will Flatter Your New Shape:

1) Lacy Supportive Bra – Lace will complement your sweet and flirty side, helping you feel feminine.

2) Thick Strap Tank Tops – Thick straps will help camouflage your supportive bra while still giving you noteworthy looks. Try tanks with a subtle pattern, bow detail or metallic trim for even more style presence.

3) Tailored Jacket, Vest, or Cardigan – Every fashion maven needs this in her fall wardrobe. Styles with a belt or cinching will highlight the best of your curves, while showing off your thin waistline.

4) Patterns and Ombre Skirts or Dresses – To deflect away from your chest, try a print skirt or dress with patterned bottom. To play up the sophisticated ombre trend, choose designs with saturated hues closer to the hem.

Trending: Pink Hair Everywhere!

Pastel colored hairstyles have been picking up momentum, arguably since 2010, especially in shades of pink. From Valentino’s spring ‘10 advertisements featuring Dree Hemingway with romantically dramatic all pink locks to notoriously pink haired model Charlotte Free, this sizzling shade seems to be inescapable in a got-to-have-that-look kind of way. Designer John Galliano even took a swing and hit out of the park having his models sport the multicolor painted on shades at one of his shows. Though we’re creeping up on two years since this trend first surfaced, it’s hanging on and successfully making its way through the 2012 season with gained velocity.


How did this trend begin? It seems as if this fantastical style has dribbled up from the streets and onto the runways with seemingly impeccable speed. Outside of the Katy Perry, Gaga, or N. Minaj realm, all of who are expected to carry the torch of shock factor, other Hollywood stars have taken note and donned wearable  adaptations of colored locks, which has now quickly filtered back into the mainstream of the masses.

Everyone from Lauren Conrad, who’s notorious for donning flirtatiously dip-dyed pastel hues to Julia Roberts who has boasted a mommy-chic version with wavy pink streaks has personalized this youthful, yet sophisticated and cool style. And let’s not forget about one of our favorite comedians and host of E! Online’s Fashion Police Joan River who wanted a piece of this poppin’ pink shade for herself (also take a look at a new backstage interview with Chris Benz on E! Online who has debuted an all pink coiffure while speaking on his NY fashion week line).


After some debate, I too jumped on board with this trend and excitedly made a visit to my hair stylist to reinterpret this popular style. Once the process commenced and the dip-dyed phase of dying my dark brown hair to blonde took place, I knew there was no turning back. 5 1/2 hours later, I was staring vis-à-vis with handheld mirror adjusted in sunlight, witnessing my chopped, pink ombre locks. To say the least, I absolutely love it!
