It might not be the first color that springs to mind when you think about what shade of swimwear to go for this summer, but millennial pink is seriously trending. If you want to embrace this playful shade, check out these millennial pink bathing suits, because this color is hotter than hot right now.
Before we delve into its origins and how it became such a fad, let’s decipher the exact shade. The Guardian reports, “It’s sort of a grapefruit shade of apricotty salmon.” While Vogue describes millennial pink as a, “…heady mix of salmon, blush, bubblegum, and coral…” The Guardian concludes that not everyone agrees on the exact shade of millennial pink and it’s actually several colors.
So where did this cute hue come from? Well it’s always been in the spectrum of shades in existence (duh), but its popularity has soared recently. While The Cut covers the origins of millennial pink in extensive detail, Vogue reports that super trendy millennial pink, “…has been popping up on shopping bags (Acne Studios), books (hello, 2016 best-seller Sweetbitter!), and even tabletops (take a trip to New York restaurant Dimes and you’ll see what we mean). The saccharine hue also made a cameo on the Fall 2017 runways…” Plus, according to PopCrush, millennial pink was spotted at the Met Gala 2017 on guests such as Zoe Kravitz and Lily Collins.
