Pantone Color of the Year: Classic Blue

The Pantone Color Institute has declared that their Pantone Color of the Year for 2020 is “Classic Blue” (19-4052 PCX). This color is a soothing, deep blue with indigo tones. “Classic Blue” was selected as the Pantone Color of the Year because of its calming, confident, and reassuring nature. With the chaos and unpredictability going on in the world, Pantone wanted their Color of the Year to be calming. This motivates the idea of optimism in the coming year, which will expectantly project onto the rest of the decade! This “Classic Blue” is an elegant, yet fun, color that can be worn all year round. Furthermore, it is a very wearable color, as it is very flattering on many skin tones and hair colors. In the following blog post, many blue hat and fascinator selections from Polly Singer Couture Hats have been featured, along with outfit pairing ideas that can give fashion inspiration.

Great Women & Great Hats

This year, 2020, is the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote. Passed in 1920, the 19th Amendment prohibited the states and the federal government from denying individuals the right to vote on the basis of gender. In light of this monumental anniversary, Polly Singer has designed numerous hats that are each inspired by an inspirational or influential woman. Polly’s hope is to highlight these women and their extraordinary accomplishments. Furthermore, Polly wanted to provide some background information about each woman, so each online description gives a mini history lesson. Our hats are off to these outstanding women!
