Color of the Year: Classic Blue

Pantone announced that its 2020 Color of the Year is Classic Blue, a shade reminiscent of the sky at dusk.

"It's a color that anticipates what's going to happen next," said Laurie Pressman, the vice president of the Pantone Color Institute, which selects the Color of the Year.

The Pantone Color Institute said it settled on a shade that offers reassurance, confidence, and connection.

Classic Blue can be regal, restrained, and boundless. But it can also be edgy, utilizing a variety of tonalities, materials, and prints.
