Every year the Pantone Color Institute chooses the color of the year. In 2020 it is back to the classic world of colours. According to color experts, Classic Blue will enrich the fashion world this year.
In this day and age, people want trust, hope and confidence. This is exactly what the Pantone color Classic Blue is intended to radiate for the year 2020. The deep blue hue is reminiscent of both the constant and the sky at dusk, an impeccably cut suit, calm water or a bowl of perfectly ripe blueberries. Due to the calm and security that this sound represents, it is only understandable that, with all the fast pace of life, one longs for a classic.
“The gentle, appealing and confidence-inspiring Classic Blue stands for harmonious interactions. Universal desires, it reminds us that every night is followed by a morning,” Pantone explains this decision.
After last year’s trend went in a young and fresh direction with Living Coral, 2020 is dedicated to a color classic that is intended to have a calming effect but can still make a colour statement. Classic Blue is both gender and season independent, making it accessible to people in all walks of life.
Classic Blue: How it combines fashion
If not already present in the wardrobe, Classic Blue can be integrated wonderfully into your own style. Whether as a spot of colour combined with minimalist black, white and grey or as color blocking – the blue tone becomes a real eye-catcher due to its intensity.
