Queen Máxima was in Lieshout to join in festivities at the Bavaria Brewery which celebrated its 300th anniversary. For this occasion, she topped a new sapphire dress and coat with her repeated large picture hat in palest, dusty pink straw. The hat features a dramatic, upswept ‘slice’ brim and is simply trimmed with a wide Petersham ribbon hatband in the same colour, tied in a bow at the side.
This is hardly a new millinery look for Máxima but there are some nuanced touches here that set it off beautifully. The high-contrast colour scheme is a bit unexpected but pulled together through the metallic dusty pink appliqued roses on the dress that firmly link with the hat. The hat’s wide brim also acts as a beautiful neutral backdrop for those earrings, statement pieces of their own that would be lost against a fussier hat. Head to toe, it’s a fantastic look for the Dutch queen.
We see a full spectrum of royal daytime working outfits here- this certainly is on the glitzier end of things, which is all right by me. I’m a big fan of this hat with this ensemble- what do you think?
