Pantone has joyfully announced its colour of the the year 2020 is Classic Blue, and today we are here to discuss how wearable and fashion friendly it is. If you disregard ‘classic’ and follow the tones that blue has to offer, you will definitely find yourself liking and loving this versatile colour. Bold colours enthusiasts will be pleased to dive into deepest royal and classic blues and neutral style lovers will be amazed to find how well it goes with neutral tones too.
Blue symbolises tranquility, sincerity, trust and confidence leaving no space for the sad Monday blues associations. Classic Blue is one of a few colours that are trusted to stay in fashion from years to years calling no doubts to be invested in your wardrobe.
Are you still wondering and not sure how to wear Pantone’s Colour of the Year Classic Blue? Here is a quick blue suit outfit inspiration followed by some styling tips.
- Monotone Dressing. If you’re unsure which colours go with the Classic Blue, try monotone. For example, get yourself a blue suit, but add a white pair of t-shirt and trainers for a relaxed look. You can also pair it with neutrals or even brown shoes and accessories for more sophistication.
- Colour Blocking. If you have colourful style, you will find blue particularly playful to colour block. Another great colour we can recommend to pair it with is bright pink. Add a pink sweater to your blue trousers or vice versa and you’ll be the street style hero of the season.
- Tonal Dressing. If you’re leaning towards monotone dressing, dive into mixing classic blue with baby blues. It will create a beautiful spectrum harmony in your outfit.
