Judging from her fashion-centric music videos and rad street style, Cher Lloyd is a PRO at making the sidewalk her very own personal runway. Just this week the U.K. songbird was spotted out and about in New York City rocking black and white ombre jeans, otherwise known as one of this season’s most daring trends. While ombre denim has been a hit at Fashion Week the past few seasons at shows like Dries Van Noten and Balmain, the look hasn’t gained quite as much fast-fashion momentum off the catwalk…until now, that is. Much of this newfound street cred goes to Cheap Monday, the denim label whose Second Skin Faded Black jeans are just $90. Cher Lloyd’s clearly a fan, and she looks so good in the style that she miiiiight just convince us to hop on the ombre denim train, too. Check out more faded denim looks below!
Besides the fact that the faded black-to-white thing gets around that pesky weird feeling of wearing white jeans when it’s cold outside (or maybe that’s just us…), ombre denim literally offers a totally awesome one-two punch. You can go super bold with Rag & Bone’s Winter White Leggings, which are a pristine pure white until just below the knee. For those shy but still trendy, there’s Helmut Lang to the rescue. The brand’s Ombre Faded Jeans have a more subtle wash, thanks to a color wheel of light and dark grays for a vintage feel. And then for the fresh-off-the-runway vibe, there’s Balmain’s seriously dramatic Black Slim Ombre Jeans. So whether you’ve got color commitment-phobia or just need a closet switchup, these faded skinnies give basic black and white an unexpected twist. Are you into Cher Lloyd’s ombre denim look?
