King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia completed the second day of their quick trip to the Netherlands with a visit to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam on Saturday. Queen Silvia repeated her white calot hat embellished with a large looped bow at the back. It is an elegant hat we have seen a few times on Silvia and I think she wears it well. Interesting note- last time Queen Silvia wore this hat, she rotated it so the bow was on the side, framing her face. I thought the way she wore it today, with the bow at the back, coordinated beautifully with her bouclé suit. Separating the ruffled lapels of her suit with the large, loopy bow was a good idea, don’t you think? I thought her whole ensemble was very elegant.
Queen Máxima repeated her charcoal grey wool hat with dramatic raised brim. This is the fourth time we have seen this hat and each time Máxima has paired it with a different dress (which speaks to the versatility of this hat). I thought the clean neckline of this dress was the perfect match for the lines of this hat and I loved how her large hoop earrings completed the look. We don’t often see hoop earrings worn with a picture hat but this worked so well.
It looks like a lovely two days were had by these royal friends. Which hat worn during this visit was your favourite? (here are hats from the first day of this visit).
