Two back to back outfit posts featuring pink items – WHO AM I? Something has certainly gotten into me because if you know me at all, you know that I despise the color pink. But somehow, millennial pink has wiggled its way into my heart. I recently read somewhere a very funny description of this particular shade of pink, “It’s a way to be pretty while retaining your intellectual detachment.” Such an “on trend” explanation, don’t you think?
Another trend, which is actually making more of a return than a debut this season, is velvet. Last Fall it was everywhere. You wanna know how I know? Because I own a velvet midi dress in millennial pink which I purchased to attend a wedding last December. I guess you can say that’s when both trends made their way into my wardrobe. Anyways, velvet is still everywhere – from tailored suits, dresses, simple tees and even flats – velvet is back in a big way.
Below I included a few of my favorite trendy millennial pink and velvet pieces from around the web. Bonus points if I found one item incorporating both trends, like this tee, these pants or these booties! What about you, what are you’re thoughts on these trends?
