There's been a distinctly autumnal feel about the Royal Wardrobe this week. Maybe it's the colours, mostly muted and darker, or the appearance of long sleeves and jackets but the summery vibe is fading fast and autumn is taking over. And that means five fantastic looks to enjoy plus a poll on the main page here to pick your favourite. Welcome to the Royal Wardrobe, autumn style.
Crown Princess Mary of Denmark did a near perfect transition from summer to autumn in a dress that suits both seasons. Her red print tea dress, chosen for a series of engagements in New York this week, is chic and neat with a dose of autumn colours and enough swing for a summer's day out. Mary wins, again.
When Queen Letizia of Spain is on form, she takes a lead in the style stakes and then some and was she ever on form in New York this week. For day one of her stay in the Big Apple, Letizia chose a white and red print dress with matching shoes and earrings and turned in an outfit that wows any day of the week. From the cut to the print, this is a fabulous way to welcome the new season.
Draping skirt, climbing prints, a good splash of monochrome - this is new season through and through but then what else would we expect from Queen Rania of Jordan. This evening look, worn in New York, is ticking all the right style boxes and the simple accessories only add to the outfit's appeal. Happy Autumn, everyone.
Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden went for a lot of dusky pink during her stay in New York and her decision to mix it with burgundy as the trip came to an end provided a classic outfit in a classic autumnal colour combination. The pale blouse had enough drape and shape to make it very Autumn/ Winter 2016 while the darker trousers were elegant and on trend while keeping the day comfortable for a busy princess. Another style lesson from Victoria.
