Pantone just announced the colour of the year, 2020, and we're surprised, albeit pleasantly, to know that it's the classic blue. This shade has been on our collective subconscious mind since Andrea from 'The Devil Wears Prada' mistook cerulean for a regular blue (accept it, we all took notes).
You know its time to take the hue seriously when the foremen officially make it the colour of the year. More rightly so, we can see this shade checking all the right boxes when it comes to our fashion picks next year.
Here are the 11 best classic blue outfits on Aza that will simply sweep away your morning blues (pun intended!) and which deserve a rightful place in your wardrobe in the coming year. Let's start now!
Anju & Harleen
This saree-pant outfit by Anju & Harleen embodies the best of trends present now - fusion and classic blue. Wear it to a cocktail party and pair it with contemporary jewellery, of course.
If you like understated glamour like I do, then, this Payal Pratap kurta set is a good pick for you. This outfit makes the cut for workwear, simple pujas, and also for a simple day out. Pair it with juttis to give it an ethnic spin, or flats otherwise.
This silk kurta from Masaba is an ideal pick for an ethnic day at work. Simple yet elegant, we would definitely pair it with demure accessories and jewellery to avoid going OTT.
Anita Dongre's collections are my all-time favourite, but I was exuberant to pick this blue lehenga amongst 10 others. Classic blue? Check. Floral prints? Check. Anita Dongre? Double check!
Ri - Ritu Kumar
We have widely covered our admiration for Ritu Kumar outfits in one of our previous blogs. We'd rightfully stated that a Ritu Kumar saree is a must-have in every woman's wardrobe. Standing by it, now we have the opportunity to own a Pantone - approved Ritu Kumar saree. Super like!
Sue Mue is that upcoming designer on the block whose collections are stunning and encompass bright hues. Such is this richly embroidered kurta set that makes us crave for more. We suggest pairing it with a matching potli and juttis for that sangeet that you were planning to attend.
Half Full Curve
What's admirable about Half Full Curve, is that we finally have exquisite designs for all shapes and sizes. Taking this body positivity factor a notch higher, this embroidered kurta-palazzo set is elegant and comfortable best. Pair it with a sling bag, and you're good to go.
Ka-sha, a brand all about organic fabrics (environmentally safe, we approve!), has the best of everyday pret styles. Hence, we totally love these palazzo pants with a front overlap. We suggest pairing these pants with a black or white shirt and minimal accessories for a smart workwear look.
Peplums have always been a consistent part of most of our wardrobes. But this pretty peplum-lehenga set by Surendri has made us fall in love with it even more. We definitely see ourselves wearing this chanderi tiered lehenga to a BFF's sangeet ceremony. After all, a little twirl never hurt anyone.
In the mood for some glamour? We love this thigh-high slit gown with a draped one-shoulder. Wear it to a wine party and garner all the attention with that sublime chiffon trail. Pair it with statement earrings and barely-there make-up.
