Dubbed the color that shaped a generation, millennial pink has turned into a cultural phenomenon. Chances are you’ve seen your favorite style stars (like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Rihanna) wearing this pink hue everywhere on social media, and we don’t see that changing anytime soon. But where did all this hype come from, and why are we calling it millennial pink?
Some say it all started in 2014 after Wes Anderson debuted his imaginative film The Grand Budapest Hotel, and others think its because Pantone named rose quartz one of the colors of the year in 2016 and pale dogwood (another shade of blush pink) in 2017. Looking to incorporate millennial pink into your own wardrobe? Below we’ve outlined 20 of our favorite millennial pink pieces to rent, for every occasion.
Millennial Pink Brunch Outfits:
Keep things casual and comfortable for an afternoon of eating, drinking and chatting with friends. Pair a pullover with a chic denim skirt for an effortless look, or if the restaurant calls for a more formal outfit, try a jumpsuit with cool cutouts.
Summer Date Night
Millennial Pink Outfits for Date Night:
For those balmy summer nights, keep cool with off the shoulder tops, midi skirts and cropped culottes. This would be the perfect occasion to experiment with some of the hottest trends of the summer. A festive gingham and bold ruffles will be sure to catch your significant other’s eye.
Formal Millennial Pink Outfits:
Millennial pink comes in a subtle range of shades, and this pale pink color is perfect for a wedding. Bring this feminine hue alive with metallic accessories. Rose gold, in particular, brings out the warmer undertones of this pink shade, so bonus points if you have the rose gold iPhone!
Casual Millennial Pink Outfits:
Be playful this wedding season by mixing millennial pink with different shades of pink. From scandi pink to “tumblr pink”, paring variations of the shade adds interest to an outfit. Just remember to keep your accessories to a minimum so that your outfit isn’t too overwhelming.
Millennial Pink Outfits for Beach Wedding:
Guests at a beach wedding can usually get away with dressing a little more relaxed. Silhouettes that fall looser around the body will be more comfortable when you’re braving the sun and sand. Complete your look with bright, bold accessories or a summery straw bag.
Millennial Pink Party Outfits:
Have a sophisticated and elegant vibe for your next cocktail party with expertly tailored pieces. A form-fitting blazer with pinstripe culottes is a fresh take on the semi-casual dress code. Pastel accents like a salmon pink earring or a baby blue purse act as great accent pieces.
Night Out With Friends
Millennial Pink Outfits for Going Out:

Job Interview Outfits in Millennial Pink:
Dress to impress with millennial pink accents on your next interview. Subtly inject the hue into your outfit through a pair of statement earrings or play up the neutral undertones with a white top and gold accents. Either way you’ll look professional and put together.
