On Wednesday, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima welcomed President of Austria Alexander van der Bellen and his wife Doris Schmidauer for an official visit at Palace Noordeinde in The Hague. For this visit, the Dutch queen repeated her dark cranberry velvet felt hat with wide upswept brim.
There’s not much to say about the hat- by now, I think we can consider this Queen Máxima’s ‘signature’ millinery shape- but the styling of the ensemble is something to discuss. This outfit is all about the yellow feathered necklace, which gives such unexpected contrast against the otherwise cranberry head-to-toe look. Acid yellow costume beaded earrings and a necklace is not what I’d immediately think of to pair with this silk dress and hat but it certainly makes a statement.
