Right? And once you notice the hue, you can't stop. Despite what its name would have you believe, Millennial Pink isn't exclusively for millennials, either. Victoria Beckham, Jenna Lyons and a whole host of our fave style icons have proved the colour has no age limit. That heady mix of salmon, blush, bubblegum, and coral has gone viral – and probably for a good reason. Pastels for spring isn't exactly groundbreaking, but designers right now can't get enough of the muted shade. And what better time! Winter is officially over and it’s time to brighten up our wardrobes with a spring injection. Pink might not seem like the easiest shade to wear, especially top-to-toe, but follow our simple guide and you’ll be working it into your current wardrobe with ease, in no time at all.

Here, we've rounded up 10 tips and tricks for wearing the shade of the season...

Looking for a way to dip your toe into the millennial pink pool? Start with something small like a pair of oversized earrings, a pair of retro sunglasses, a nail varnish or a handbag. If shoes are your thing, stick to classic courts in light or popping shades, or trainers in candy colours.   ----------
