If you think about the life on the Internet in the past few years (talking, like, 2015 to now) there is one, huge, neon word popping in mind: Aesthetic. Yep, that’s basically everything that’s been on-line lately. Huge pastel backgrounds are taking over absolutely everywhere, shades are matched on online mood-boards and a whole new generation of colors is created.
Millennial pink is one of the handfuls of shades that express a whole new way of feeling and absolutely every brand is obsessing over it. Be it hair dye, lipstick or nail polish, it doesn’t matter: not wearing, or not knowing, the color of the century might result in a fashion disgrace.
In other words, having something Millennial pink is a social must nobody can escape, like the velvet sweaters in the nineties but nicer. Now you can’t regret a pastel shade more than you did with Spice Girls inspired clothes, can you?
Anyhow, what does Millennial pink really look like?
For starters, it is a very controverted color; in fact, it may not be a colour at all. Millennial pink goes from peach to salmon and it’s definitely a pastel pink, although nobody actually knows how pink.
The most important thing? It’s everywhere and on everyone.
