Aren’t pastels just the dreamiest for Spring? It’s looking like a veritable Easter egg hunt on the runways for this season, with shades of buttercup yellow, baby blue, and soft pink (millennial pink) edging out your usual brights. And there’s one hue in particular that seems to be popping up more than most… Lavender.
As pretty as a rainbow ice cream cone, our spring wardrobes can expect to be bursting with pale hues from yellow, to purple, green to pink. Pastels will be everywhere, which isn’t so groundbreaking, but designers have stepped up their game and gave us pastels on crack and from head to toe. Whether lilac, pink, lemon or duck egg blue, expect to see an array of fashion’s prettiest shades this SS18.
Pink is back. You might not have noticed… after all, the pink I’m talking about is a not-quite-pink pink. It’s a pink that encompasses barely-there dusty rose, faded peach, muted apricot and dull salmon shades, known collectively as ‘millennial pink’ and its been a personal favorite of mine for a hot minute. Proving it’s staying power, ultra-feminine pink ranged in shades from blush to light fuchsia for SS18.
Millennial pink has been around forever, but why has this color been consistently taking over all the industries for the past few years? Is it all that rosé wine you’ve been drinking, or those rose-gold iPhones? Even became Pantone’s Colors of the Year for 2016, Rose Quartz, described as a soft, warm, calming and relaxing hue, related to society’s move towards gender equality and blurring the line between male and female.

The dusky shade of postmodern girlhood represents a smart, sly kind of feminine mystique―pretty, but with better things to do. It looks great on every skin tone, with a bare face or a bold lip. With both street style and practical appeal, it’s logical for designers to keep puffing and passing the shade down the line. It’s a soothing, self-care shade that packaging designers know make everything look nice and manages to both catch your attention and fade into the distance.
Lavender challenging millennial pink for the next IT color??? ABSOLUTELY!!! A new pastel is emerging as the next must-have color and I ain’t mad at it. Whether done in ethereal dresses or flashy metallics, lavender proved to be the new “It” color for spring. So if you’re over millennial pink you can go for a more tranquil blue hue.
