Queen Máxima was in Utrecht today to officially open the Princess Máxima Centre for Pediatric Oncology. For this event, she wore a new straw picture hat with upswept brim in the loveliest muted shade of leaf green.
Even though we have seen this style of hat on the Dutch queen in nearly every shade of the rainbow, I can’t help embracing this version. The scale and shape continue to work well but it’s the colour that makes this piece sing. Green can be a tough colour to wear but the slightly muted shade compliments Máxima’s rosy skin tone. With her Natan floral dress, the pairing is pretty and hopeful- exactly the kind of thing to wear to meet young patients as Máxima did today.
