Queen Máxima opened a new environmentally sustainable office building for a group of Charity Lotteries in Amsterdam yesterday. For this visit, she wore a new toque hat in the same saffron yellow and navy silk jacquard print as her blouse.
There’s lots going on here to balance the ensemble: the reversed pattern of the silk print on the skirt, the small-ish scale of the hat, the open funnel neck of the blouse, the high contrast yellow and navy colour scheme. It’s a very coordinated look to be sure, but I think it works well and I admire Máxima for stepping out in a colour as strong as this yellow- not something we often see on a royal hat.
