Pantone’s ‘Colour of the Year’ is Classic Blue. A hue that we are all familiar and comfortable with. A soothing shade that is reminiscent of the sky at dusk. It’s the colour of timelessness and understated elegance. A colour that we can all get on board with.
In fashion, Classic Blue is a trusty go-to colour that never goes out of style. From clothing to accessories, shoes and eyewear, this shade offers so much versatility. Conservative enough for work, bold enough those nights out yet sophisticated enough for high glamour, Classic Blue ticks all the boxes. Plus, it’s the colour to covet for 2020 according to Pantone. So we’re celebrating with our own must-have list of Classic Blue eyewear.
Like most blue pigments (such as navy, cobalt or cornflower), it suits every skin tone and is super easy to style. But one of the easiest ways to update your wardrobe is to invest in accessories.
It doesn’t matter whether you save up for a designer handbag (like a luxury Chanel or Balenciaga) or a pair of designer sunnies – this shade of blue will instantly add a pop of colour to your ensemble…
If you love this timeless yet refreshingly contemporary hue as much as we do, hit the refresh button on your eyewear with our top picks.
