I am obsessed with ombré. Ombré, marble, tie dye, wood grain, brushstroke prints, blurry prints, verdigris prints. Anything abstract, art or nature inspired and tonal.

I collect ombré items and keep them forever. My hair is ombré (dark at the roots, blonde at the ends). And I love putting together “almost ombré” outfits: outfits that use a graduation of colours in a similar way to ombre.

Which brings me to today’s outfit.

The jumper I am wearing here was black and white, but I dyed it tan. It’s more a tie dye than an ombré print, but close enough. It is a favourite. Maybe a favourite favourite. I was lucky enough to find a duplicate of the original at a flea market so I am now contemplating what colour I will dye that one (teal and burgundy are the chief contestants).

The skirt is an abstract dark floral from Topshop.

The boots are super chunky. Glam rock. I thought I was game enough for them but it ended up taking me a long time to pluck up the courage to wear them. I am self conscious about my feet. I think I like them now. (But no critical comments please.)

I was very happy with how the colours came together in an almost ombré way.

I finished the outfit with my long jacket from Cue (another favourite). It has a greenish undertone which I think works well with the orange undertone of the rest of the outfit. I like orange with green. (Verdigris!)

I wore this to lunch with my mum.
