Fashion Friday: Rethinking Millennial Pink
Happy Friday Mom!
What the heck is Millennial Pink? It's a hot topic these days, no?
In March, The Cut, published a piece about the persistence of this "color." It's a VERY comprehensive look at the history of pink as well as an examination of why this is color of choice for advertisers, clothing companies, interior designers, etc. when targeting Millennials.
Check out some more recent bits of their pink timeline:
It's everywhere, moms!! In response, Heather Swedel from Slate pointed out what this mom was thinking the whole time I read it:
So, calling all these pinks 'Millennial Pink" is flat-out wrong. They're just plain pink. That said, pink (in all it's variations) is having a real heyday and it seems its not going anywhere.
And I was excited when Everlane introduced their "Pink Edit" last summer.
Nevertheless, I still haven't bought a SINGLE item of pink clothing.
Here's why: 1. I believed MOST of the pink stuff I was seeing would look super uncool on this super pale mom bod. 2. I'm cheap and usually don't want to shell out for something that's not "practical." BUT since pale is here to stay (my dermatologist did some serious skin-shaming on my last visit) and, you know, YOLO, I've decided to screw it and buy some "Millennial Pink!"--- er just, pink.
I'm thinking about these items:
Ok so I really love these heels. I even dreamed up how I would wear them, a la Miroslava Duma.
But, winter is coming, and I should probably just find that Drake puffer.
