The Best Of Millennial Pink To Shop Right Now
Every season trend reports pop up with a colour or two to keep in mind when updating your closet with the latest gear — this year however, one particular shade of pink has been basking in the limelight. A cross between a super pale pink to an almost peachy nude but not too barbie-esque, the colour has been termed ‘millennial pink’ for its capacity to define a generation with its perfect balance of seriousness and frivolity.
Already a trendy hit overseas, we can’t possibly think of any reason why we shouldn’t incorporate some millennial pink into our wardrobes right now. There’s no need to worry about passing for a 12-year-old when wearing this shade because it doesn’t hold any girly-girl baggage anymore but has a newfound androgynous value — with pride month already underway, the colour associated itself with gender neutrality. It’s been reported that at least 50 percent of millennials believe that gender runs on a spectrum and this pink is their genderless mascot. Also shedding its stereotype as a fun and childish colour, you can be taken seriously if you sport this shade to work as well, which is exactly why the resurgence of a newly dubbed millennial pink is actually kind of a big deal — its recent fame is inextricably linked to and representative of powerful women.
Positively provoking reasons aside, the colour saw an uprise at Spring fashion week with Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma collection that was packed with all the millennial pink you could ever want. Proving that the colour has versatility and staying power, feel free to pair your new pinks with other shades from the blushed and muted spectrum — the resulting look is monochromatic and effervescent!
