What is Millennial Pink?
A bright, bubbly hue that has been slowly taking over runways and social feeds for the past few months. The surprisingly versatile Millennial Pink is often classed somewhere between a grapefruit and salmon shade — never quite bubblegum, and just shy of coral. Given its effervescent universality, it works well either as the main focal point of your outfit (a wool coat, a t-shirt dress, a hoodie, or a button-down), or as a soft accessory on a darker palette.
Below, we show you how to do both when it comes to eyewear:
All in the family
Already wearing Millennial Pink and looking for frames to complement your outfit? Heed the rule of colour families and colour opposites: this warm shade contrasts nicely with a deep, cool purple, while additional pops of bright green, stark black, and charcoal grey tie the look nicely together.
Darkness & light
If you’re already wearing a cool, dark palette, a soft pink accent adds lightness to the overall look — particularly around your face. The Kam Dhillon Claudia glasses in Bare offer a touch of blush without screaming “hot pink.”
All pink everything
But if you just can’t get enough of Millennial Pink, then by all means — don’t hold back. Throw on some pink or pinky-tortoise glasses with your pink dress, pink shoes, pink shirt, pink coat, pink anything. Trends are only around for so long, so why not take this to the limit?
