-There are so many different ombré styles as displayed in the collage (left). You are bound to find the perfect style for you. Some typical questions that arise are the following:
1. Where can I find an inexpensive pair?
2. Can I make them myself (DIY) ?
3. How can I wear my ombré shorts without being over the top?
I will attempt to address these concerns to the best of my ability. If you have any further questions, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE leave a comment. :)
Ombré shorts are everywhere! Even so, they can still run a tad bit pricey; something your bank account might not like. :/ However, there's always sites where you can find a pair at a reasonable (even cheap) price. A few sites or places I'd recommend that are pretty popular amongst most people already are the following:
-Goodwill!! (Please go here! You will come across some amazing finds!)
-Local Thrift Shops
The reason I recommend going to thrifts and your local Salvation Army or Goodwill is because you can find some cheap pants and convert them into shorts. This could be part of the DIY Ombré Shorts project. I will post a link to an awesome tutorial. This tutorial also includes the DIY for converting jeans into shorts. It's a very simple look with only white and navy tones:
Here is another link for a more creative, colorful style:
Here is another great link that explains step-by-step how to create your own ombre shorts if you are the type of person that learns by reading directions as opposed to audio instructions:
Why not Glam Up a bit?
If you're more of a daredevil, then here are some nifty additives to consider adding to your brand new shorts to personalize your look:
