This year’s spring and summer style will be anything but bland! Flashy colours like red, orange and pink will be trendy. Next to these warm tones, though, blue - the official trend colour of 2020 - will also keep going strong.
“Black’s always in style.” That’s what many of us think when we stand, clueless, in front of our closet. But this year, classic black has some competition. In addition to being modern, blue works especially well in dark tones as it can be paired with almost all other colours. Regardless, other blue tones like pastel, indigo or navy are always a safe bet. Pantone’s 2020 colour, “Classic Blue,” is popping up on the shoe trend scene: an absolute must-have this year are sneakers, ballerina flats, and more in these different blue tones.
Have you ever wondered why sneakers are called sneakers? Our blog is home to the answer!
Red, orange and pink will be bring some more pep into our style wardrobe this coming season. The most brave will be seen wearing the strong colours from head to toe. If you’re looking to make your outfit more fit for an “everyday” look, opt for colourful accents with single accessories. Is red clothing too bold for your taste? Then try opting for some red shoes. A classic, everyday outfit like jeans and a t-shirt will look great with the extra pep from flame-red or Burgundy sneakers. For elegant looks like a little black dress, pink or red ballerina flats look especially chic.
For those of you who don’t feel comfortable in bright clothing, we’ve got good news: classic colours are always a safe bet. Beige, grey and white bring calm to your look. Our Giesswein products in white or black look especially nice…and if you’re looking to add a bit of colour, you can mix these natural tones with blue, red or pink.
As the third generation of the GIESSWEIN family to operate our company, we - Markus and Johannes Giesswein - grew up around wool. We’ve made it our mission to reinvent the basic properties of wool in order to create one-of-a-kind products. Thanks to our many years of experience, today we are Europe’s largest producer of clothing and shoes made of 100% virgin wool for women, men and children. Sustainability is also a high priority for us: way back in 1997, we created Austria’s first water treatment facility. Thanks to this, up to 90% of the water that we use in our production process is reused, thus preserving valuable resources.
