We don’t know about aliens, but millennial pink sure has invaded the Earth. Whether it is in fashion, beauty trends, lifestyle products or even devices, this colour is reigning supreme and refuses to be dethroned anytime soon.
Tempting as it may be to embrace it into your wardrobe and your life, this colour comes with some baggage. For starters, it is named after a generation that seems to annoy its predecessors very much, so wearing this colour can be akin to aligning your loyalties with it. Add to that the conundrum of wearing this pale shade of pink and still managing to look like you mean business, and you will find yourself slowly retreating from it.
It’s a Catch-22 situation, where you can’t exactly escape a trend that’s clearly on its way to global domination, but you don’t want to submit to it wholeheartedly either. The answer, then, lies in picking the right millennial pink separate. Enter skinny jeans – a closet staple to all age groups and the perfect separate to dress up or down, given the occasion. Here are three new ways to wear a pair of pink jeans and be taken seriously.
Wear It To: Work

Who says you can’t wear pink and smash the glass ceiling at the same time? Pair these pale pink skinnies with a feminine blouse and a white blazer for the ultimate business meeting outfit. Add a pair of nude kitten heels and you are ready to coolly conquer the boardroom.

Wear It To: Brunch

When all the girls dress like ladies who lunch, go ahead and dress up as the girl who brunches. A fun sheer top with statement sleeves (which is all the rage at the moment) and metallic accessories add a ‘girls just wanna have fun’ vibe when teamed with these jeans. Pull on a pair of statement sunnies and spend Sunday sipping on mimosas.
Wear It To: A Night Club

Body-con dresses are so passé. Wearing skinny jeans to the club is not only chic, it also makes a whole lot of practical sense when you bust those moves on the dance floor. Team the millennial pink skinnies with a metallic cami top and add off-the-moment accessories like a layered choker for the ultimate cool girl vibe.
