EyeStyle Look: Pantone Color of the Year 2020

An EyeStyle Look features a curated fashion-forward outfit

centered around a stylish frame to keep you up-to-date with the latest trends.

This year's EyeStyle draws inspiration from Pantone's Color of the Year for 2020: Classic Blue (19-4052). This timeless blue hue is a traditional staple color for any wardrobe, in any season. Blue has been an enduring color option for eyewear over the decades, with good reason. It's bold enough to draw attention to one's frames but can still be perceived as a "traditional" or "neutral" color choice.

Pantone’s official definition of the color describes it as “suggestive of the sky at dusk." This cool hue was selected because it brings "a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, offering refuge. Aiding concentration and bringing laser like clarity." By "instilling calm, confidence, and connection," Classic Blue "highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era."

How to Wear Classic Blue

Classic blue is a simple, yet elegant, color that has endured over the decades. It is a timeless, traditional color that is easy to fit in any wardrobe. According to Pantone, "Classic Blue makes a dramatic statement for eyes, nails, and hair in a variety of finishes from glittery and glam to dusty matte. Classic Blue is a poised and self-assured blue hue, elegant in its simplicity.  Genderless in outlook and seasonless in endurance, this foundational anchor shade enables color mixes throughout the spectrum, yet at the same time, makes a strong statement on its own."
