Pantone Colours

Sodalite Blue PANTONE 19-3953

Every spring the nautical look emerges from the winter sales. This year's navy is known as Soladite Blue. Pantone describes is as;
'a classic maritime hue, brings order and calmness to mind. Like an anchor to a ship, this dependable shade works with every colour in the palette.'

You can wear it without doing the full on red, white and blue, brass buttoned, striped combo which always remind me of Hyacinth Bucket in the 'What to wear when yachting' episode of Keeping Up Appearances.

Here's how to do this spring's navy in good taste while shopping on Etsy.
