Autumn Winter Colour Trend: Millennial Pink

If you’ve never heard of ‘Millennial Pink’ – now is the time to get acquainted. So-dubbed because millennials are the ones who kicked off the latest pink trend by using it on everything from desk accessories to lounge-room walls This dusty, dreamy, muted shade of pink is now practically considered a neutral by those in the fashion industry, since dominating multiple seasons at fashion week.

And although it seemed for some that millennial pink may have had its big moment in 2017, this year’s major red carpet events have proven that it isn’t going away anytime soon. Celebrities such as Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan and Laura Linney have dazzled in this sweet shade that’s all about grace, femininity and girl power. Fashion experts are predicting that the colour will be staying around for some time to come because it’s flattering on pretty much everyone.

Its effect is such that you need only invest in one fabulous piece to inject a feeling of now-ness into your look. But with so many coats, sweaters and shoes on offer, how could you possibly stop at just one?


Millennial Pink

Millennial pink is incredibly versatile and it doesn’t have to be as innocent as it looks; the options are multifold.

Teaming pink with florals will instantly give your outfit a girly feel – keep the look casual with sporty flats or a quilted backpack –  while pairing it back with shades like grey or charcoal will toughen up the look. Blush pink is the perfect shade to complement monochrome outfits so it’s a clever tool to lift your black basics with an accent of pink through shoes or a bag. Dial up the cool factor by choosing more masculine styles and shapes, like wide leg pants or an all-pink tuxedo cape. Trend wise, texture is key for this autumn/winter, so think lightweight cable knits teamed back with plaid or check pants.

Millennial Pink will instantly revamp your wardrobe however you choose to wear it.
