Every year, American colour company Pantone picks a shade as the colour of the year to set the tone (pun not intended!) for fashion trends in the upcoming year.
If you haven’t heard, this year’s pick is none other than the “universal favourite” Classic Blue, or Pantone 19-4052.
Described by Pantone as “a reassuring presence instilling calm, confidence and connection”, Classic Blue is a harmonious shade that looks beautiful on anything and anyone.
If you want to hop onboard the colour trend and don’t know where to start from, this guide of the prettiest items in the exact same shade (or similar ones) is for you.
