We saw Queen Máxima wear her dramatic purple wool hat at two high profile events last month- once while touring Japan and the other, for the Spanish King and Queen’s introductory visit to the Netherlands. Since debuting this hat a year ago, Queen Máxima has paired it with three different dresses- begging the question of which pairing do you think is best? For more details on each outing of this hat, click on each photo to link back to the original post:
Ensemble #2: with a with a grape hounds tooth checked dress with funnel neckline worn in Tilburg on March 18, 2014
Ensemble #3: with a muted burgundy silk peplem dress and statement costume necklace worn October 15, 2014 to welcome the King and Queen of Spain on an introductory visit.
Update- since original publication, additional outfits have been worn with this hat:
Ensemble #4: with a dark purple coat and bright pink leopard print sheath dress worn on October 18, 2015 at the Rijksmuseum.
Ensemble #5: with the dark purple coat and a cherry red dress with purple stitching around the neckline worn on February 5, 2018 to open the Oncode Institute for cancer research
Ensemble #6: With a raspberry silk Natan coat, purple scarf and floral dress with high-low hem to welcome a Singapore state visit on November 21, 2018
So, dearest readers- which ensemble works best with this stunning hat?
