King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of The Netherlands continued their inauguration tour of their country with visits to Limburg and North Brabant. The photos here show their participation in festivities at Heerlen Pancratius Square in Heerlen earlier today. Máxima wore the same navy straw hat and lace dress that she wore while on a tour of the Dutch Caribbean in October 2011.
From the front, I like this Fabienne Delvigne designed hat. The picture brim is turned up in the front in a casual wave, showing off the textured straw and it looks casually elegant. From the back, however, I was very surprised (and disappointed) to see how messy this hat looks. Shredded straw hats can look very beautiful (as shown here) but this one looks rather unfinished to me. The huge hat pins Máxima is wearing don’t help, either.
What do you think of this hat?
