Welcome back to my 2020 Personal Style Goals to get us off into this new decade feeling confident and joyful in what we wear. In this post, we will learn what the selected colors are for 2020 in fashion and home design.
So far, we have
- Decided what we want to say with our clothing this year…selected the messages . Goal #1
- Cleaned out the closet so only the best garments are there for our daily selection . Goal #2
For number three, let’s discuss color choices for the year and how we can step out in bold, new ways. Like many of you, I have had my personal color done. I am a winter, but of all the colors available to winters, I only wear a small selection…not all of them. I would like to broaden that base in 2020.
I love my neutrals (especially black, which winters wear successfully), but as I go down the road to retirement I do want to add more color and be more selective with color. You see me most often in my black and, of course, deep purples (not lilac, but eggplant). The last two years, I have stepped out of my comfort zone wearing more pink, the lights and the brights. I want to continue pink in 2020 and add more deep greens. (I confess black and purple will remain in the mix because I love them so much!)
The pictures today show you my desire to wear more navy blue than black. It is softer and happier. The outfit today represents my plan to wear blue and to wear fitted blazers more often for work and with jeans. I still love the long and flowy toppers and kept some favorites in my closet purge but want more figure flattering pieces now that weight work is toning up the body more! (Woo Hoo!)
Blue is a big color player for 2020. Pantone always selects a color of the year, and for this year it is Classic Blue, which some are also calling Anti-Anxiety Blue. This means you will see this color everywhere… in fashion, interior design, and home accessories from candles to towels. The good news for me, is that I love to wear this color and have decided to wear more of it. You can see Pantone’s Color for Spring/Summer 2020 Here.
My color goals then are:
- Wear light and bright pinks
- Wear deep forest or military (olive) greens
- Wear more navy options and less black
- Wear classic blue…especially for spring and summer
- Look to add a few pieces from the Pantone list for Spring and Summer…there are some I adore here!
What about you? What do your color goals look like for this year and how do they complement your messages? How can you step out of your comfort zone with color and experience something new? Let’s Talk! Completing my wardrobe purge feels so good and refreshing…it is such a great way to start the year. I want to thank everyone who is participating in Goal #1 and sending your five adjectives. When you email your adjectives to me, I will select slideshow options with your adjectives in mind. I will let you know when you are going to be featured.
We are starting today with Karen, a loyal follower who has participated in the Foundational Five (Five adjectives) from the first time I wrote about it. There are so many of you I would love to meet face-to-face one day and Karen tops that list. She is here most days. She has recently retired, but still desires to communicate that she is classic, polished, effortless, chic and modern. This is a powerful and beautiful foundation to have with your wardrobe and impressive that she desires to maintain it during retirement. So, the slideshow below is dedicated to Karen and women like her.
KEEP SMILING (and making new style goals for 2020)
