Queen Máxima was in Utrecht yesterday to attend the 40th anniversary of the Child Phone support program. For this celebration, she repeated her black straw picture hat with sharply upsweeping ‘slice’ brim.
There’s not much to say about this hat (it’s a black version of her go-to brimmed style and while we’ve now only seen it three times, it’s a very familiar style) but there is much to admire about its styling with this dress. On it’s own, the dress is fantastic and sets a perfect balance of contrasting pattern that could easily have been upset with the wrong accessories. The smooth curves of the hat works so well with the white background of the bodice and the whole ensemble is brought together with a dichotomy of classic pearls and killer patent heels. It’s SO GOOD.
