There was a time not too long ago when fashion didn’t allow for much experimentation because it was based on a set of rigid rules: No white after Labor Day, never mix navy blue and black, and match your belt to your shoes—to name a few. Thankfully society’s moved past that type of fixed styling structure. (Phew!)

Still, even in an era of anything-goes fashion freedom, somehow, white remains the unofficial color of summer—sorry turmeric yellow. Donning tees, jeans, activewear, and, of course, sneakers in the crisp hue is de rigueur during the dog days ahead. Which could explain why seeing so many millennial-approved pink trainers filling our feeds and on the feet of women IRL feels so refreshing right now.

It’s an example of the bigger shift toward new neutrals we predicted would be a major trend in activewear in 2018.

It isn’t just about throwing shade (literally) at the sartorial establishment, either. Rather, it’s an example of the bigger shift toward new neutrals we predicted would be a major trend in activewear in 2018. We’re getting beyond basic blacks, whites, blues, and grays, to consider pastels and earth tones as universal colors to match with pretty much anything in your wardrobes—and that shift includes what’s going on below your ankles.

To that end, millennial pink sneakers are the perfect swap in for your go-to, wear-with-everything pair of white kicks—they don’t get dirty as quickly or as noticeably—plus, they add an unexpected quality to even the most standard summer wardrobe of leggings and tees.

Thankfully, I’m not the only one who’s been thinking of a pair of pink sneakers—options are seemingly unlimited at the moment. So, I’ve sifted through them all (okay a lot of them) to present you with the 12 most buyable and wearable styles no matter what your preferences are (chunky sneaker lovers included).

If you’re in the market for some accessories to compliment your new shoes, nab one of these fun travel wallets and a pair of statement earrings.
