Lessons in Wearing Millennial Pink As an Adult

That’s a Good Look is a column devoted to the art of simple styling, with a twist. Do try this at home.

If you thought the millennial-pink and cold-shoulder-top trends had passed you by — “I’m too old to pull this off!” — you’re wrong. Baring your shoulders in soft pink is not strictly for the youths.

The trick is to commit as completely as you can, and keep things interesting. A strong crossbody purse in a darker shade paired with fun dangly earrings gives off the vibe that you like to bring the office to the club, and structured ruffles with matching jeans signal that you love to send Snap stories to your friends while working on your stock portfolio. See, age is nothing but a number. Now that’s a good look.
