Mikasa Princess Attends Self Defence Awards

Last Monday, Princess Akiko of Mikasa attended the 12th annual People’s Self-Defense Officials Awards honoring distinguished service in the Self-Defence Forces of Japan. For this ceremony, Princess Akiko wore a smart cream hat with square crown and short, upturned brim trimmed in a mint band to match her suit.

  1. The Japanese royal family have a very restrained aesthetic in their clothes and millinery but I find it attractive in its simplicity and quiet elegance. However, I don’t want it to become too widespread. Variety is the spice of life. This is a pretty outfit for a young woman. She looks well turned out.

  2. I love everything about the way she is dressed….her hat is so perfect with the matching band and the suit is very chic. One thing about the IJF, the ladies always dress like ladies……….sometimes it might be a bit boring yet it is always chic and elegant. This young princess looks really elegant, and the pearl necklace and brooch are the bling.

  3. Can you imagine one of the Japanese royal ladies wearing a hat that Camilla wears or Princess Michael or one of Maxima’s picture hats? What a change that would be from the same old same old they always wear. Their hats are so very, very conservative. They all look the same, just different colors. Mikasa does look neat and totally put together with this hat.
