The Royal Wardrobe: rosy royals
Five rosy royals in this week's wardrobe selection
Queen Letizia was clearly feeling rosy as she smiled her way through day one of the Argentinian State Visit to Spain and it wasn’t just the prospect of wearing one of the most famous tiaras in royal collections that evening. The Queen of Spain chose palest pink as she welcomed her guests at the Royal Palace in Madrid on February 22nd. Her two piece suit, with spaghetti strap belt, is pure chic. Add pale accessories and a pair of huge earrings borrowed from her mother in law and you have a queen in the pink.
At the other end of the rosy scale was Queen Maxima who went all out with a neon pink dress for a visit on February 21st. The fitted dress is super simple in style – straight skirt, long sleeves - and a perfect fit. Keeping the accessories to a minimum makes it even more striking and the fact that the necklace does the whole on trend neon thing so perfectly only adds to the wow factor. The hat and shoes are neutral without being bland. This is a pretty unforgettable outfit – for all the right reasons.
Here's a real royal rose garden with flowers of all kinds on the dress chosen by Princess Madeleine at the start of the Canadian State Visit this week. From its neat collar to its fitted sleeves, there's all the elegance going on here, while the floral motif is fun and striking without being overpowering. Madeleine’s smart matching of shoes to the stand out black collar is another tick and adds to a very rosy take on modern take on royal dressing.
Talking of pastel, here comes Princess Sofia in a cocktail dress chosen for a gala event on day two of the Canadian State Visit to Sweden was sugar sweet and style itself. The light colour is lifted by the texture of the dress while the bow at the neck adds interest and adds a slightly deeper hue to keep things interesting. We’ve got a long, flared skirt and minimal accessories and all in all, this is very pretty and spot on for the occasion. Pink is really winning this week.
