Classic Blue is the colour du année. So naturally, we want to wear the hue and we've already been seeing it on the street style circuit...

First, the maximalism trend has continued to reign supreme, delivering a rainbow of colours into our wardrobes in cool, new combinations. Then, millennial pink came into our lives in a beautiful way with everything from sneakers to shelving, handbags and beauty products painted in the hue.

The it tone was then followed by Greenery to Ultra Violent and Living Coral, and now, the fashion colour company has forecasted the colour of 2020.

As much as we love our all-black ensembles, the Pantone Colour Institute has chosen Classic Blue as Colour of the Year for 2020, and we couldn't help but notice that we've already been fronting the hue all year long.

Perfect for ushering in a fresh new decade, Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquillity to the human spirit.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute, said: "We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep resonance, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication."
