Pantone colour of the year is Classic Blue; a deep rich blue found in the richness of blueberries. It’s a colour that is related to calmness, reliability, confidence and connections.
Classic blue is elegant, timeless and easy to style. It can be used as a neutral in your wardrobe or teamed up with brights, lights or muted colours.
Classic Blue suits most skin tones as it doesn’t have the harshness of black.
If you feel black looks too harsh against your skin you may want to consider investing in a Classic blue blazer, coat or even replace the little black dress with a rich blue one, and team it up with silver or gold accessories.
In the coming months you’ll see all shades of blue popping up in the stores, but before you rush out and follow the trend, remember ladies, shop from your wardrobe first and choose the best shade that suits your skin tone and personality.
Below are some outfits I have put together in different shades of blue.
