Millennial Pink Has Had Its Moment But The New It Colour Is Purple

    2.9K  Views

    Remember when you couldn't go a single second without hearing the words "millennial pink" or when Pantone (unsuccessfully) declared two colours of the year, only to have them both just... not deliver? Well, I have good news for you. While sage green also had a major moment this year, a colour that feels that it'll last way longer like millennial pink is *drum rolls* millennial purple. 

    Don't be confused about what exactly counts as millennial purple, though, 'cause I've seen all shades being cited as the it colour. But just for those of you who want a clear cut answer, it's definitely more a more pastel lavender shade. Check out these products on how you can incorporate some purple into your life, whether it's in your outfits or homes.

    Before you have to ask Siri (or Alexa) what a trivet is, it's basically a coaster but for hot dishes. I love the daisies on it because it adds a fun touch to an otherwise practical piece and I might just get two and keep one on my vanity to put my rings on.
