Weekend Wear: How to Pull off the Colour Everyone’s Crazy About Right Now

Millennial pink. Chances are you’ve seen this phrase floating around the web, describing the of-the-moment colour that is removing the stigma around pink for both guys and girls. It’s a pastel, but it doesn’t have the preppy connotations that usually entails. If anything, it’s more of a rose-tinted beige that has become a streetwear favourite and is popping up on everything from coats to pants to shoes. The easiest way to rock it? Build an outfit you’d normally wear with a grey crewneck sweater, and then swap that out for one in a pink-y hue. Hey, if it’s good enough for Drake, it’s good enough for us.


1. Barney Cools Pink Crewneck Sweater, $95

If you aren’t normally one for colour, this low-key sweatshirt with a tongue-in-cheek embroidery is a good place to start.

2. Levi’s 502 Regular Taper Fit Stretch Pants, $85

Khaki chinos keep this look from being too casual, but they’re still as comfortable as sweats thanks to a soft, stretchy cotton-elastane blend.

3. Vineyard Vines Whale Logo Cap, $35 at Nordstrom

The sun is finally out and you should spend the weekend outside, so top off this look with a baseball cap. The whale logo is a small touch of fun.

4. Links of London Venture Tan Leather Bracelet, $270

A simple braided leather bracelet in a light tan colour is an understated accessory that mixes well with the colours in this outfit.

5. Herschel Supply Charlie Wallet, $25

Introduce another subtle touch of pink with this conveniently compact cardholder.
