Millennial Pink

Millennial Pink is here and it’s here to stay.

Interestingly enough, when I was younger, I hated the color pink. I refused to wear it because I thought it was incredibly girly and I happily thought of myself as a tomboy. If I absolutely had to wear pink, it wouldn’t be a pastel pink. . .oh no. If I had to wear pink, it was a bright or neon pink, anything to differentiate myself from anything truly feminine.

As I grew older, I became more tolerant of the color pink and aware that what I wore, didn’t define me. There are still items that I won’t easily go to (anything with bows or heart-shaped cutouts) but I’m more open to wearing them. I was kind of excited that “Millennial” pink became a thing because it opened my eyes to the versatility of the color and how well it works as a neutral.

These days, I love the colorMillennial Pink. . .or as I often call it, blush pink. I mostly love pairing it with black as I feel it creates a yin-yang effect. While I’ve never liked wearing anything too feminine, if I did wear feminine items, I liked wearing them with something tough or hardy. For example, slip dresses with combat boots. That’s why I love wearingMillennial Pink with black, to toughen up the look a little. Or if I want to tone it down, I’ll wear Millennial Pink with a beige or tan color.

This slip dress from Thread & Supply is the first Millennial Pink item I own and it’s heaven on. The straps are adjustable so you can choose how high or low you want to go and there’s a sweet slit on one side.

I paired it with an oversized faded black denim jacket (found here) which I’ve worn almost daily since I’ve gotten it. The fit is perfectly boxy and goes well with skinny jeans or slip dresses. It’s a faded black so it has that vintage feel and it keeps you covered up on a hot day without feeling stifling, but also keeps you warm when it gets cooler. Every summer, I have a few pieces that I end up wearing consistently, and I have to say, this is one of them.

    I love a good slip dress and yours is super cute! But Hunni, those slippers, where on Earth are they from?!? Love them!!!

    • They’re from Zara! Got them on sale for like $29 but sadly I think they are sold out 🙁

  • I love the color Millennial Pink, or how you also refereed in the post as blush pink. I agree, if it is truely pink pink, it is just too girly!

  • I remember avoiding the color pink as a kid too, and now I really enjoy it. The millennial pink is a really pretty color that seems to go with just about anything!

  • I think it’s beautiful. I love colors like this during the summer especially since it usually means that the clothing is light and comfy too. This dress looks great on you!

  • Cassie Liz

    Love this dress and how you had styled it – the dark jacket compliments as well as the funky shoes.

  • jillconyers

    Yay on millennial pink. It’s perfect for summer and easy to dress up or down.

  • Kristina Paché

    I like the pink! Love pink and blush colors. Perfect for summer and even fall if worn with a soft grey cardigan.

  • Candy Calderon

    How cute is these dress?! and the slippers look like a pineapple! Extra points for that 🙂

  • Candace

    When I was younger, I also hated pink. I actually really like it now. I love that dress! So soft but really nice!

  • I love the pink dress with the denim. I think the denim helps balance out the girly aspect of it. I went through a point where I hated pink too. I think a lot of us rebel because we’re told from when we’re so young that we should love pink just because we’re girls. I don’t buy a lot of pink clothes, but I do have quite a few pink accessories.

  • Marie Andrea Goldstein

    Loving the color and the slip look of this dress. Super dainty, yet edgy at the same time. Those shoes are KILLER!

  • Amy Desrosiers

    Those shoes are crazy! I love the light, and flowy look of this dress and would totally wear it myself.

  • This color is beautiful on you. I love that you paired it with the black for that ying yang effect. It works. So simple and yet stunning!

  • David Elliott

    You look amazing here in that pink dress and black denim jacket. I don’t know why you think pink would have been bad. You look incredible in it.

  • Kindness In Demand

    I know this was supposed to be about the dress (which is amazing) but I couldn’t get over those shoes. They are so cool and remind me of a pineapple. I need to get some like that!

  • Like Kindness in Demand said, those shoes definitely caught my attention too. I like that dress. It looks good on you, but I find it hard to believe that anything would look bad on you.

  • Reesa Lewandowski

    What a lovely dress! It’s very sexy! I love your shoes too, they remind me of pineapples!

  • Frosted Events

    I love your style! This is beautiful, very feminine but edgy and modern at the same time. I love anything blush… clothes, home decor, makeup! And your shoes are just fabulous too

  • Very pretty one. I love the color because it enhances the seeding, not take away from it,

  • Lana Luu

    I love this shade of pink, it is a basic colour for me. I used to avoid pink in past too, it was too girlish, in my opinion. But now I like to experiment with colours.
    I adore this slip dress and the way you styled it with the oversized denim jacket. Gorgeous day-to-day outfit!

  • NICOLE SHILLINGS

    What a lovely dress. I love that dusty pink, it’s stunning on you.

  • Cecilia C. Cannon

    truly looks like a perfect summer dress for day or evening. you look great in it!

  • I actually found myself falling in love with the blush/neutral pinks too, despite not liking it as a colour for clothing for the longest time back in high school. It’s so chic, feminine, and classy, yet as you said, can also be styled with black for an edgier look.

  • Gina Diaz

    I love blush pink any date and time! this dress is so lovely and looks truly gorgeous on you! adored the way you styled it! amazing oversized jacket!!

    This is my first time hearing this color referred to as millennial pink. I just call it blush haha. You and I are in the same boat. I hate anything that makes me look super feminine because I’m so far from being that.

  • I am a huge fan of pink, but actually don’t wear it at all. But I would totally wear a slip dress in this shade of pink! It’s so classy and sexy at the same time. Those pineapple sandals are the cutest and perfect for summer!

    Unlike you I’ve always loved pink, but just like you said, there are so many hues and some are more flattering than others and millennial (or blush) pink is certainly a bit less provocative than the bright neon pink things out there so you put together a beautiful and sophisticated outfit with these pieces!
