You may think you don’t know it, but you do. Millennial pink is everywhere these days: From book covers up to shoes, to shirts, to a beach in Mexico even. Millennial pink is everywhere in the world and there’s no way to hide from it.
But what’s with this color anyway and why people can’t get over with it? It’s basically pale pink with a neutral shade like Pantone Rose Quartz or Pantone Pale Dogwood mixed into it.
According to Slate, the hype started in 2014 with Wes Anderson’s movie The Grand Budapest Hotel, where the hotel building is painted with several shades of pink. The rage for this color continued in 2015 when Apple released the rose gold variation of iPhone. It went cray in 2016, when Rose Quartz was named Pantone Color of the Year, but millennial pink’s domination is far from over.
Below are nine ways you can wear the hottest color of the year.
