Ombre Inspiration

Ombre (meaning a gradual change in hues), has been everywhere this past year from fashion to beauty, homes to food. I think of it as a more sophisticated tye-dye look and it seems to be trending into 2012.

I love the subtle change in color which gives even the brightest of colors a calm, feminine look. And I knew it was only a matter of time before it hit fitness apparel. Add an ombre piece into your fitness wardrobe for a bit of inspiration and fun.

Here are two ombre fitness pieces I'm loving at the moment:

Nike Dip Dye Burnout T ($35) - I love the cut of this top and the length (long enough to cover your bum!). The ombre combined with the stripes gives this top a modern look that can easily translate from the gym to the coffee shop.

Ombre Foldover Waist Athletic Pants ($14.80) - This pant is a steal at less than fifteen dollars. While it isn't made of wicking material, it's still a great pant for yoga, pilates, etc. So snap this one up before it's gone!
