I kind of adore ombré. So much so that it becomes strangely entangled in Sophronia's adventures in Waistcoats & Weaponry.

I don't use the actual word in the book, but essentially Sophronia wears a dress that involves ombré ~ lighter at the top, darker at the bottom. I'm not going to tell you any more because I want it to be a surprise but keep an eye out for it, Fashionable Reader? And in the meantime here's some inspirational images.

Here's more on decorating with Ombré.
