Have you ever wondered how Pantone decides on its “Color of the Year”? You might think it’s random, but it’s anything but. Pantone states that the Color of the Year is “a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.

 So, why “Classic Blue” for 2020? According to Pantone:

“We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue, encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking: challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication” – Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the The Pantone Color Institute.

How can you incorporate this color into your wardrobe in 2020? We, of course, think one of the best ways is to add a fashion accessory. What we especially love about Classic Blue is that you can wear it all year long – it’s perfect for chilly winter days and sunny summer nights.
