Move Over Millennial Pink, Millennial Purple Is A Thing Now


For whatever reason, the internet has a thing for labeling colors. (I don’t know if we can necessarily blame Pantone for this, but it seems logical.) We started with Millennial Pink, moved on to Gen-Z Yellow, and then, for a very brief moment, Banana Candy Yellow made a quick, summertime appearance in the UK. 

 

Now that winter is closing in,  the internet has spoken yet again—Millennial Purple is officially the trendiest color of the season. From makeup to food to furniture, Millennial Purple (also known as Melodramatic Purple) is making its presence known.

 

If you’re still nervous about taking the purple plunge, here are a few subtle ways to incorporate the color into your outfit without going full-on orchid. 

 

Millennial Purple Accessories

Purple is an intimidating color, there’s no doubting that. But that doesn’t mean you should feel too intimidated to wear it. If you decide to go the lighter (more millennial, less melodramatic route) try mixing vibrant, contrasting colors to create one bold, cohesive look.

Melodramatic Purple Shoes and Handbags

Purple is adored by mystics and royals alike. Deep purple, or Melodramatic Purple (as Lorde says) works surprisingly well with gold jewelry, pastel separates, and here’s the kicker—dark blue. It’s crazy how a navy blazer just works with a purple blouse.
