King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima spent a day in South East Friesland on Thursday, visiting a cheese farm, a traditional Skutjesilen sailing school and an eco farm, where they partook in a bike ride. For this engagement, Queen Máxima repeated her large, natural straw picture hat with upswept slice brim trimmed with a tan ribbon hatband, tied with an unstructured bow on the side.
This hat is a familiar one- as we’ve seen it paired with nine different looks we’ve consistently admired its great shape, scale and go-with-everything natural hue. I think the discussion point here then, is this hat’s pairing with this dress. While the dress’ less structured shape fit with the more casual nature of this visit (a level of formality the hat adapted to easily, further showing its great versatility), this pairing of hat and dress lacks some of the high-impact statement we’ve seen this hat have with other outfits. I’m also not keen on the dress’ particular shade of orange, which I think might pair better with a lighter, creamer hat (or this darker one?).
Designer: Fabienne Delvigne. It is the “Belissima”
