Color Crush: Color of the Year – Classic Blue

by | Feb 7, 2020 | Color Crush, Style | 6 comments

As you can probably tell from my website design to my personal style choices and home decor, blue is one of my very favorite colors! In this edition of Color Crush, I am highlighting the Pantone Color of the Year: Classic Blue.

Described as “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.”  A little bit New Age for me but I do believe that the color blue is a classic and a calm and peaceful color as well as exudes confidence.

This timeless color can be found in everything from fashion to home. This year‘s Color of the Year, Classic Blue is one that is also described as the sky at dusk.  That being said although the Pantone does have a particular color there are several very similar shades I would consider Classic Blue and have included these in the boutique below.

This beautiful dress and this gorgeous lace top are great ways to wear the color of the year showing confidence.  Wanting to add a pop of classic blue? Try this handbag or this one which are both so versatile. Another way to add a pop of classic blue to your look is with these or these earrings. Classic Blue paired with raffia is a great statement for Spring and Summer.

Many times classic blue is paired with other colors or used as an accent and different patterns. I love this gorgeous floral dress and how it highlights the classic blue color. This graphic floral with classic blue, black and white is a great way to wear the color of the year and the spring trend of black and white.

Classic blue and white are another beautiful and classic combination in style and home. I’m loving this dress and this one and this tote with that thought in mind.  This gorgeous dinner pattern featured in this Classic Blue Tablescape is a great example of Classic Blue at home.

    I don’t normally wear blue, other than jeans, but I could definitely find ways to incorporate some of these blue-tiful pieces into my wardrobe.

    I have just started receiving your posts and I look forward each morning seeing what you have posted. Your website is very friendly and informative.
    The color blue is not a big staple in my wardrobe but I am seriously considering some of the choices you have posted!
    I have always been a huge fan of blue and white chinoiserie pottery in my home.
