Pantone has announced its Colour of the Year 2020. This year it is PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a deep blue shade that is peaceful yet powerful just like the sky at dusk. 

Pantone is an emblematic name in the fashion, design, graphics and lifestyle-intended businesses. It is a symbol of mindful designs. Pantone’s colour language supports modern aesthetic designs and bold use of colour brings out the liveliness through various means by the fashion industry.

Pantone had introduced Cerulean blue as their Colour of the Year in 2000’s. It’s almost two decades now and they came up with another heaven kissed blue hue by adding the enchanting “Classic Blue” as their Colour of the Year in 2020.

Laurie Pressman, the vice president of the Pantone Colour Institute mentions, “It’s a colour that anticipates what’s going to happen next.”

Let’s take inspiration from Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2020 and never miss out on any fashion trends.

Here’s how we can incorporate Pantone’s Classic Blue into fashion styling:

Designer Chung Thanh’s collection rocks the Pantone Colour of the Year. We chose the menswear styled suit to be on top of our recommendation. This outfit exhibits femininity and strength at the same time, giving off domineering yet an approachable aura just like a hue of the dark dusky sky.

The classic blue blazer along with wide-legged trousers looks magnificent and emanates power completely justifying the portrayal of strength. The pop of black corset-style belt looks feminine and stylish.

A reflective blue tone, Classic Blue is a timeless blue hue, fostering resilience, and elegance in its simplicity. Amit Aggarwal, the renowned designer experimented with Classic Blue in his independent ramp collection using glitter and sequins with shades of turquoise. His collection Lumen in the India Couture Week reflects the serenity of classic blue into contemporary fashion. 

The beautiful lehenga representing hues of blue along with beautiful sequins shows sheer elegance. Suggestive of the sky at dusk, it highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.

American actress, Meghan Markle absolutely nails the blue hue in a smartly tailored asymmetrical dress by Australian label, Dion Lee. Her look is imprinted in our minds along with the cool and restful blue coloured outfit. It’s a colour that you can certainly rely on anytime and every occasion.

The off-shoulder bandeau gown with a thigh-high slit from Chung Thanh’s collection reminds us of the fairy tale attire. It brings a sense of peace and tranquillity to the human spirit making us feel nostalgic and bringing clarity to our thoughts. Classic blue always represents a certain amount of calm and emotional dependability. 

Let us all welcome this nostalgic splash of Classic blue as the Colour of the Year. In a world where we are suffering from the feeling of instability, Pantone’s Classic Blue shade offers the reassurance, confidence, and connection that people have been looking for. Classic blue provides an anchoring foundation, expanding our thinking and encouraging us to look beyond our imagination. It is the colour of skies that embodies a soft and calm tone meant to inspire new hope and a sense of serenity amongst us.
