2019 was a year of heroes and hope. While the world was bombarded with issues such as climate change and political unrest on a global scale, people still remained hopeful. In fact, in Google’s 2019 year end summary, the company revealed that in 2019, a number of people searched for “heroes.” In line with our desire to search for heroes, real life or otherwise, we look to 2020 with renewed hope that things will get better. It seems that the Pantone Color of the Year 2020 is even representative of this feeling. According to Pantone, the Color of the Year is 19-4052 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.”
Pantone Color of the Year 2020, Classic Blue, is representative of hope amidst chaos, and calmness amidst strife. This year, let us be more conscious of the choices we make and the implications of such choices. Let us be reminded of this as we add a touch of Classic Blue into our lives with some of our best picks of the New Year season in this comprehensive list for your wardrobe and home.
