Here’s a new word to add to your dictionary: Millennial Pink. It’s not your regular pink and has tones of peach, blush and salmon. It is not a bright pink that is completely in your face and you can find it literally everywhere from clothing, accessories, product packaging, electronics, food and home goods. The millennials just can’t stop buying stuff covered in this color which is why it’s all you have been seeing for a while and will continue to see.

Where did it come from? And why does every millennial pink product fly off the shelves? Last year Pantone named Rose Quartz its 2016 Color of the Year and this is when the craze around this color began, from rose quartz, rose gold to this color we now call millennial pink. A couple of months into 2017 this color is going strong and it’s amazing how long this one has stuck around. You have now seen it on your favourite celebrities, in hair, in food, in drinks, on walls, in makeup collections, on clothes, in advertisements and possible everywhere on your social media feeds. You might have not realised it like just like myself that you are drowning in this color. Recently I found myself saying “Am I not wearing too much pink these days?” to a friend and realised I can’t help it, when you go to shop that is the color that is shown to you the most. In the times we live today this color fits in perfectly, it speaks to the people of today where trans models walk the runway, gender-neutral clothing lines exist and with all the gender quality talk – millennial pink is genderless!

 

Let’s have a look at how this color has literally taking over every type of industry like storm:

What Is Millennial Pink, And Why It Refuses To Go Away?

You can find this color in almost all types of clothing now from bomber jackets, sweaters, fur coats, dresses, etc. Fashion girls, designers, runway models and street style looks have all been complete by this one color recently. Gucci and Dior’s runway collection really proved how strong this color is and that it’s the only one you should be wearing right now. Research has been done around millennial pink and the results were that this color uplifts ones mood and gives positive vibes.

Millennial Pink Product Packaging

The color was already a big hit before Pantone made the Color of the Year announcement last year, but that news really gave it that kick. Companies like Acne and Glossier along with many others turned to this color for their advertisements and product packaging. This increased their sales as obviously this color attracted a lot of customers. You saw the color on shopping bags, boxes, bill boards and any other form of branding, and it really called out to a lot of people.

Thanks to the rose gold trend and the iPhone also being very popular with their rose gold color phone, you could already find a lot of jewellery and accessories with that metallic touch. Slowly things moved to a softer and matte look with the actually millennial pink color and some of them are super cute! They are products that really would look good on any gender so don’t worry none is ever going to call this color too girly.

Millennial Pink Home Decor

After all the products we saw millennial pink found its way into our homes too. As we all know trends come and go pretty fast and even though this one has stuck around for a while that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t play safe. Stick to buying a few small items of the color to blend into your home so that it is not a major change and you get that pop of color. Start decorating your house not covering it entirely! Since it has been said this color improves your mood and actually also controls your hunger, celebrities like Kendal Jenner and Kylie Jenner have painted their walls in this beautiful color.

Millennial Pink Food & Drinks

If you’ve scrolled through Instagram, gone shopping, or just been a human being with internet connection recently, you have seen all the madness around this color. Is it possible that another millennial obsession with rosé wine has influenced the color to actually pop up in our food and drinks? Like we mentioned before it has been a great way to advertise a brand lately, we saw Starbucks do it and their pink drink went completely viral. It really isn’t wrong that people are using this color to their advantage, along with wearing it it’s time to eat and drink it too.
