The announcement of Ultra Violet as the Color of the Year for 2018 inspired a division in public opinion: some loved it; others, not so much.
If it just isn’t for you, you can always count on good ol’ Millennial Pink, the color that eclipsed Pantone’s chosen Color of the Year for 2017, to keep you classy and in style come 2018.
Slide on those pink-tinted glasses and look back at where this color took us in 2017.
*All prices as of December 14, 2017.
Millennial Pink was introduced in the 2017 Spring Color report as “Pale Dogwood,” a mix of salmon, peach, and pink tones which Pantone described as “a quiet and peaceful pink shade that engenders an aura of innocence and purity… a subtle pink whose soft touch infuses a healthy glow.”

However, the term “Millennial Pink” as we know it today encompasses a wider range of similar pink shades. (Who has the time to constantly color-match, anyway?)

The color got its more popular name because of its widespread acceptance in fashion, advertising, popular culture, and more, particularly by Millennials. In some circles, it’s also known as “Tumblr Pink” or “Scandi Pink.”
