Our culture’s current year(s) long obsession over millennial pink is really wearing me down. There’s actually a restaurant around the corner from our studio that is ENTIRELY pink — like, plate to wall pink. It’s like walking into a millennial’s Instagram feed and feeling slightly nauseated by it. I mean we all realize millennial pink is just Pepto Bismol pink, yes? (Please say yes.)
I have been dying, DYING for a new color to come along and usurp millennial pink’s throne.
Currently, my money is on lavender. Why? Because, much like millennial pink, I keep asking the question, where the hell did it come from? Sure, it’s a color that’s existed as long as lavender has grown in the English Countryside, but since when did it inhabit our wardrobes so fully? And why am I so drawn it?
I think it’s because it looks great on every skin tone and plays so, so well with others like green, yellow….fine… even millennial pink.
We decided to express our love of lavender full tilt and show some monochromatic looks but like I said, it seriously plays well with others. Even if you must pair it with Pepto Bismol pink.
