Let’s talk pink

Why did Millennial Pink become such a hype? Millennial pink is not just a hype, but a movement of Millennial boys and girls to show the world that no matter the color you like or the color you wear will define your gender. Instagram has been taking this movement to an entirely new level in which it doesn’t hurt that the color happens to be both flattering and generally pleasing to the eye, but it also speaks to an era in which trans models walk the runway, gender-neutral clothing lines are a thing and man-buns abound.

Moreover, celebrities nowadays are our fashion hero’s – in which they have so much power to actually pursue in a trend or carry forth a trend and make it something worth noticing. As for some – they have decided to take the color pink really serious. Harry Styles, Zoe Kravitz, Noah Cyrus and many more celebs have been spotted rocking this color.

Not only has this been a gender movement – and it’s been reported that 50 percent of millennials believe that it is – this pink is nostalgic. From the Juicy Couture pink track suits to Cher’s fuzzy pens in Clueless – the 90’s have made a huge ironic comeback.

Before this pink trend became a hype, pink was not taken seriously. Wearing pink has become a more serious shade – it has been seen in Polo’s, Button downs, suits and many more casual, work and evening wear. Millennial pink has not only become the tint-du-jour, it has also shown us that despite this playful, cheeky and sincere color can also be embodied and worn whenever. Faith in society restored.
