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.
So, to my lovely readers. . .
