Pantone’s Color of the Year: Classic Blue

Posted on December 11 by Molly Gregor

If you love blue, you’re in luck, because you’ll be seeing Classic Blue, Pantone’s color of the year for 2020, in everything for your upcoming wedding: bridesmaid dresses, ties, shoes, linens, invitations, nail polish, makeup, etc. Designers take the color of the year and incorporate it into their new offerings for 2020 so it will be popping up everywhere. They typically always have blue shades, but Classic Blue will be upfront and center.

So what do you think about the shade? It’s a little basic to us, but I don’t dislike.

Here’s why Pantone chose Classic Blue:

A timeless and enduring blue hue, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue is elegant in its simplicity. Suggestive of the sky at dusk, the reassuring qualities of the thought-provoking Classic Blue highlight our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.

Imprinted in our psyches as a restful color, Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, offering refuge. Aiding concentration and bringing laser like clarity,  Classic Blue re-centers our thoughts. A reflective blue tone, Classic Blue fosters resilience.

As technology continues to race ahead of the human ability to process it all, it is easy to understand why we gravitate to colors that are honest and offer the promise of protection. Non-aggressive and easily relatable, the trusted Classic Blue lends itself to relaxed interaction. Associated with the return of another day, this universal favorite is comfortably embraced.

PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue is a poised and self-assured blue hue elegant in its simplicity. Genderless in outlook and seasonless in endurance, this foundational anchor shade enables color mixes throughout the spectrum, as well as making a strong statement on its own. Emblematic of heritage but at the same time highly contemporary, versatile PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue takes on distinct appearances through application to different materials, finishes and textures from shimmering metallics, lustrous sheens and high-tech materials to hand crafted looks and more fragile fabrics.
