Move Over Millennial Pink, This Is Gen Z’s New Favorite Color
You're about to see this hue everywhere.
For the past couple years, blush pink (later dubbed "Millennial Pink") has been showing up in home decor, clothing, makeup—even cleaning products. And while the trend shows no signs of stopping, trend forecasters can't help but predict what hues might have the power to replace it. As with most trends, forecasters are turning to the next generation to decide, and the trend experts at Etsy think Generation Z has spoken (and even Vogue agrees!). According to their analysis, "Gen Z Yellow," could be the new Millennial Pink, with search for "yellow" items rising 20 percent in 2018 on Etsy, compared to the same time period last year. Have a feeling the trend will stick? Stock up on these Gen Z Yellow statement pieces now, and consider yourself a trendsetter.
