Queen Máxima officially opened this year’s academic year at Orion, the new education building at Wageningen University this morning. She debuted a new vibrant orange straw folded hat that looks like an oversize stylized flower (or folded napkin).
It’s a shape we have seen on Máxima before (she has similar hats in pale pink and in creamy beige) and it fits with her recent trend toward brimless hats. Paired with her orange dress however, it’s a LOT of orange. I’m going to say what I usually say about Máxima’s hats- she’s the only royal I can think of who can pull this off. That’s why she is and will always remain one of my favourite royal hat wearers. It’s so good to have her back from summer vacation!
