i had the same problem, and then, I have to go to the web store, to install the classic blue. 
p/s, i'm using dark mode in my Mac, suspect that was one of the problem.. I do prefer to have a light mode chrome.

I swear. Google is literally forcing me to use Chrome in this shitty black/dark mode. I can't find any option to remove it and restore the original theme. Only option is to download the blue theme from the web store and use that.

Thank you so much, Alexcmy Chong.  I was quite disturbed by the sudden shift in appearance, but your fix worked.  :)

Right click on your Windows background,

choose Personalize, then colors.

Scroll all the way down and Switch 'Choose your Default App mode' from Dark to Light.
