It feels like it’s been forever since we last wrote the “The Power of…” article. Previously, contrary to popular style trends, we were charmed by the power of purple which is often misunderstood because it’s such a unique color. This time, we want to start the new year excitingly with Pantone’s Color of the Year, that is Classic Blue. You may notice that Pantone’s Color of the Year is a big momentum that it evidently has a great influence for the upcoming trend in art, design, fashion, or even pop culture in general.
On their official website, Pantone states
“Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”
If you don’t realize, 2020 is a whole new decade. That’s why Classic Blue is such a defining color that we need to pay attention to.
How to wear Classic Blue?
Luckily, blue is an easy color. It seems to be everyone’s favorite color. Blue is not intimidating and it doesn’t make you think twice to wear it for daily activities (unlike any neon colors *cough *cough). It can be worn to parties, work meetings, dates, and even a wedding reception. So there are tons of great style inspirations out there on how to wear this special color. We’ve curated some doable and realistic (to be worn in a tropical country like ours) outfits for you. Scroll through to see the impact of the color that has become the street favorites!
The easiest, most doable one is obviously denim. Easy to mix and match and also oozes coolness and edgy vibe.
Puffy sleeves are IT. The trend really started to take off from the last month of 2019 and it only getting more popular now.
A jumpsuit would be convenient for a date night or a busy day at the office, don’t you think? Keep the accessories simple and you’re good to go.
An oversized sweater and flowy skirt are perfect when you want to be slouchy and comfortable on a rainy day. For a day out, wear pointy shoes or heeled sandals to add some flair.
Classic blue dress for a special event? We don’t have any concerns! If you think the color isn’t striking enough, accessorize!
Not a fan of blue from head to toe? You can still join the celebratory moment of Classic Blue with your beanie or beret.
Or perhaps with an XXL bag who will definitely be the talk of the day?
Or if you’re bold enough, a blue knee-high boots for a girl’s day out perhaps?
