5 Days, 5 Ways: Millennial Pink

The color of the millennials

“Now usually I don’t do this but, uh…”

This week we’re doing things a little differently. I’m sure all of you have heard/ seen/ tasted/ smelled/ felt and pretty much been everything BUT personally victimized by Millennial Pink. If you haven’t, read this New York Magazine article literally on it. It’s here, it’s not going anywhere, and it happens to be a versatile and (surprisingly) universally flattering shade. It’s just as easy to subtly incorporate into your wardrobe as it is in your girlfriend’s Instagram feed.

While I could have shown you 5 ways to wear a pink tee, it didn’t feel as pivotal as other 5 Days, 5 Ways topics. The idea is that the hero piece is a worthwhile investment because you can wear it in a variety of situations, and it doesn’t feel like a trend that is a waste of time, money and/or closet space. While I can’t say that every one of you will need all five of these pieces, I can say that adding something in this shade to your wardrobe will give a fresh spin to your closet that will either a) still feel relevant or b) be so mainstream that it’ll be as basic as beige in the next 1o years. It’s that unoffensive of a shade of pink. I promise – I’m a millennial.
