A Reassuring Presence Instilling Calm, Confidence, And Connection

Tapping into sight, sound, smell, taste, and texture Pantone makes PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue the first multi-sensory Color of the Year in the company’s history.

Pantone, provider of professional color language standards and digital solutions, today announced PANTONE 19-4052, Classic Blue, as the Pantone® Color of the Year for 2020; a timeless and enduring hue elegant in its simplicity.

We are living in a time that requires trust and faith.

This can include the entertainment industry and films in production, traveling art collections and new artists, fashion, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, as well as new lifestyles, playstyles, and socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from new technologies, materials, textures, and effects that impact color, relevant social media platforms and even up-coming sporting events that capture worldwide attention. For 21 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design.

The Pantone Color of the Year selection provides strategic direction for the world of trend and design, reflecting the Pantone Color Institute’s year-round work doing the same for designers and brands.”

To fully bring to life the true meaning of PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, Pantone has translated PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue into a multi-sensory experience.

Fall Fashion

This autumn, shoppers can seek out remarkable style and engage with key trends in a personal way. For women, greenery is the central hue for fall. Deep shades of kelly and olive reference the natural world and tones can be mixed and matched effortlessly. Varied textures add interest and dimension, like a snake and crocodile I.N.C. International Concepts pump. For a little more boldness, walk on the wild side with animal prints of every variety. From natural leopard on faux fur coats to neon hues of snake on Bar III dresses, pattern is king of the jungle this season. Try a new twist on plaid with bold color mixes and prints of all sizes, like a tweed Julia Jordan dress or a Vince Camuto plaid top and skirt with just the right hint of neon.

Midi lengths are key in skirts and dresses, like those from Tommy Hilfiger, especially when paired with oversized sweaters. Add some drama to a casual look with a voluminous sleeve or make the ultimate style statement with a Lauren Ralph Lauren head-to-toe plaid suit. Animal prints make marks on everything from handbags to Calvin Klein intimates, while statement earrings approach the trend with tortoiseshell prints. Western accents adorn shoes, hats and saddle bags with buckles, fringe and whipstitch details. Chunky sole sneakers, like those from DKNY, keep any look feeling fresh and new arrivals shoes from Sam Edelman offer something for every style.

In menswear, gray matters this fall. From sleek tailored suiting in windowpane patterns by Tommy Hilfiger to streetwear sets by Ellesse, the head-to-toe monochromatic look is sure to turn heads. For a standout moment, try a silver metallic moto trucker jacket from Michael Kors or an abstract printed trench from Alfani. The modern utility trend also offers new twists on menswear favorites. A military jacket from Levi’s is an effortlessly cool take on the trend, while a head-to-toe wine-colored camo suit from I.N.C. International Concepts is the ultimate statement.

Fall Beauty

Embrace your fearless self this fall and don’t be afraid to play with color! Bold and bright eyes are the hottest beauty trend this season. Pack on the pigment with Anastasia Beverly Hills x Jackie Aina Palette or clean beauty brand PÜR’s Barbie Endless Possibilities Pressed Pigments Palette. Use the same shade on the lower lash line to amp up the wow factor! On days where you want to up the ante but don’t have the time, try the season’s hottest lip trend, the flame lip. It’s great to wear on its own and make a chic bold statement. Channel your inner French girl with Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in 080 Red Smile or Chanel Rouge Allure Liquid Powder in 954 Radical. This modern twist on the classic red lip brings orange hues out to play.
