At the start of every year, the American based colour institute Pantone selects a colour of the year that reflects on the global culture of our time, this year opting for the ‘Classic Blue.’ As a universally appealing colour, the Classic Blue was chosen by Pantone for the new era because it represents a conservative and classic shade, whilst symbolising peace, confidence and connection.
Elegant in its simplicity, the Classic Blue hue is a calming colour that brings a sense of peace and tranquillity. A colour that is gentle yet bold, the Classic Blue is familiar, timeless and friendly. It evokes nostalgic thoughts of the evening sky or the deep blue ocean and as an omnipresent hue, it can be spotted in all aspects of contemporary life.
It is only fitting then that this classic colour inspires the 2020 fashion collection. We have curated our favourite collection of Classic Blue Pantone dresses, drawing inspiration from Pantone’s complementary colour palettes of the iconic blue shade.
Our Favourite Styles
The undoubtedly most classic of blues is Navy, a neutral-toned colour that is flattering to all skin tones and hair colours. Versatile enough to be dressed up or down, this colour is easy to pair with a neutral tone pump heels and statement earrings. The boldness of the blue hue attracts attention to your silhouette, so opt for a natural makeup look with nudes and blush pink tones.
