Danish Queen Celebrates Banking Milestone

Last Wednesday, July 4, Queen Margrethe took part in events celebrating the 200th anniversary of  Danmarks Nationalbank, Denmark’s central bank. For the occasion, she repeated her pale blue straw hat with round crown and openly woven sideswept brim, trimmed with a posy of pink and white silk cockscomb flowers and green feather leaves. 

It’s such a light, pretty, summery hat that pairs beautifully with this silk floral dress. The cut of the dress is fantastic on Queen Margrethe – something that always makes a hat look better – and the ensemble’s balance of neckline and brim, texture and pattern, solid and print are all just right.

  1. I agree, HQ —lovely flattering hat, perfectly styled. Definitely seen at its best without either of the coats it was worn with previously.

  2. I like this hat more than many of Margrethe’s. The flowery trim makes a change as I don’t think she goes in for much trimming. I like it with the outfit too, but I think I might have preferred it if it were a colour that ties in with the dress rather than an additional colour. Maybe a pink or lilac, or even some shade of green. White perhaps not, as I like having the solid colour element to contrast with the dress.

    • To me, it looks like the hat is the same colour as the background colour of the dress print (or at least quite similar).

      • Ah, on my monitor, the hat is pale blue, but the dress background is definitely white! Perils of photography. So yes, it would tie in better then.

      • On my screen, the background of the dress looks white in this post and the 2013 post, and pale green in the 2015 post – nowhere blue. So yes, as Bristol says, the perils of photography.
