Style School: Hobo Yes Or No

March 5, 2008 by SheFindsErin

Welcome back, style students. I trust you all did swimmingly on your first pop quiz and chose the white and green Badgley Mischka cocktail dress as the piece featuring an oh-so-trendy ombré effect.

If you got it wrong, don't worry. The SheFinds fashion profs are here to keep you up to speed on what's what in the world of style. Ombré is a French term meaning "shaded." Like the Badgley Mischka dress, pieces featuring ombré fabric or dye patterns have a gentle color gradient that fades seamlessly from one color to another (think beautiful morning sunrises). The effect is wispy and artistic—and it happens to be one hot trend at the moment. Everything from dresses to shoes to handbags are showing up with stunning shading.

Speaking of handbags, it's time for our next pop quiz, this one focusing in on popular purse lingo that gets thrown around—and misused—quite a bit. Both Kate Spade and Marc Jacobs call their pictured handbags "hobos," but only one of them really is (looks like at least one handbag designer needs to enroll in Style School stat!)
