For those who find themselves hard-pressed to let go of the millennial pink trend, we’re here to offer up a much-needed refresh on the hue. One that resides within the same tonal family yet imbues a dynamic detail riddled with power and intensity—call it power pink. The inspiration comes by way of Solange Knowles Ferguson’s performance at Chinati set against a backdrop of Donald Judd’s 15 untitled works, and we’re here with an array of ideas on how you can bring the hue home. Ahead, Domino associate style editor Lily Sullivan shares her essentials, which encapsulate the color movement with effortless ease.

Solange’s use of color is so moving. Her performances are true works of art.  Scales by Solange Knowles at Chinati Foundation, Marfa, Texas
