How to Style the Color of the Year
When it comes to being on-trend, nothing is easier than following the color palettes that every designer and magazine is talking about. If you’re unsure about hard to wear fad going around, keeping up with color is right for you! For 2020, we’re going to be seeing classic blue in every collection and across all retail stores. The leading color forecast company, Pantone, is the place to go for everything color and has named classic blue the color of 2020. Whether its home fashions or the color of your top, this deep ocean blue is here to stay and offers a refreshing look on our favorite primary color.
Contrasting & Complementary Colors
For this one, you’re going to want to break out your color wheel. With such a versatile hue, this Classic Blue is going to look great against vibrant reds. The Pantone spring/summer color palette features Flame Scarlet, a bright red that simply cannot be missed and is an effortlessly chic option to pair with blue tones. Color blocking these two colors will have you looking like a trendsetter fresh off the runway.
If contrasting colors are on the bold side for you, introducing complementary colors into your wardrobe is best. Looking to play things safe? Blue and yellow do exactly what they’re supposed to do when paired together in a look: complement each other. The cool and warm colors will make for a more balanced and sophisticated ensemble. Find a Classic Blue and yellow shade pattern or print. Accessorizing with orange-based accessories will leave you looking vacation ready while you let the Classic Blue color stand out among the rest.
Ready to adopt Classic Blue with full force? Taking a monochromatic approach will leave you in blue from head to toe. An easy way to keep monochromatic looks boring is by mixing interesting textures and fabrics. For bottoms, denim is going to be the easiest way to go. And if you’re anything like us, we have endless drawers filled with jeans you’ll be throwing on your favorite pair in a breeze.
Satin and reflective fabrics are all the rage this season. Be sure to pair your favorite pair of high waisted jeans with a Classic Blue satin top. For easy on the go looks, layer it with a light and airy cardigan. For those pieces, you can throw on a hoodie or cardigan while adding some variations of light and deep blues to add some dimension and movement.
