Last year it was the year of the gradient – from ombre nails to ombre cakes, we had a gradient touch for pretty much everything. This year, however, is definitely the year of the fishtail braid! I only picked up 5 examples to convince you that sooner you adopt the fishtail braid habits into your style, the better, fashionable you’ll be!

{1}The Fishtail Braid Hairdo: almost every one of our beloved famous ladies who walked the Red Carpet this year had a fishtail brad. On the side, on the back, the long or the short version, everybody has to wear a fishtail braided do at one point! (hit the jump to see the other 4!)

{4}The Fishtail Braid Food: traditionally named challah, the braided bread is a very widely known, appreciated and baked bread during Jewish holidays and on Sabbath. I actually don’t need to use that as an argument in favor of the braided trend for I love this bread in all in each its shapes and forms – it’s divinely good!

{5}The Fishtail Braid Dresses, Shoes and Accessories: basically, beyond the braided dresses and the braided jewelry, all I need to remind you guys of is that Nike is launching a braided sneaker! And if that doesn’t convince you that braided is the new black, then nothing will and you’ll forever be stuck with last season’s ombre trend!
