What's Your Style Got to do with Royals?
Mother's Day is right around the corner. With graduation and wedding season coming up, many moms might find themselves in a dilemma. What do you wear for these special occasions and how to do your hair and makeup? Fear not, because we've got you covered with some regal fashion tips inspired by the coronation.
Let's start with the color royal blue. Worn by Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, Grand-Duchess Maria Teresa, and Carole Middleton, this vibrant and bold hue can be worn as a dress, a blouse, or even as an accessory. Not only is it a great choice for a graduation ceremony, but it's also a timeless color that can be worn on other occasions. Plus, it's flattering on all skin tones, so you can't go wrong with this one.
For those who have trouble deciding what to wear in the morning, monochromatic outfits are a great solution. A head-to-toe white or black look is always classic, but you can also experiment with colors. Crown Princess of Denmark wore a gorgeous purple from head to toe. It's a fabulous color that looks terrific on everyone. Zara Tindall wore a light blue that radiated sleek elegance. Queen Rania of Jordan sported a light yellow that isn't as blinding as white so it gives that soft, put-together feminine look. They are chic and effortless, and you only have to worry about one color. Just choose a color you love and make it your own.
Ukranian first lady Olena Zelenska's monochrome look which was completed effortlessly with a coat that draped over her dress and finished with simplistic but effective pearl jewelry. Queen Masenate Mohato Seeiso of Lesotho shone in elegant royal blue accentuated by her matching feathered headpiece and clutch.
When it comes to looking expensive, pearls are the way to go. They exude elegance, sophistication and instantly elevate any outfit. You can wear a simple pearl necklace or a pair of earrings, and they're suitable for any occasion. So, invest in some high-quality pearl jewelry that will last you a lifetime. Muriel Zeender Berset wore a long strand on her neck at the coronation but you can go for a choker, or a mid-length necklace depending on what you're in the mood for.
If you're feeling bold and adventurous with your fashion choices, opt for bright and bold colors. They're perfect for making a statement and standing out from the crowd. A bright red or sunny yellow dress will make you the center of attention and give you an instant boost of confidence. The Princess of Wales was glowing with her regal drapes that you can channel too with the use of bold colors. But if you’re giving saturated reds, blues, and pinks a go, be sure to add in some whites to really highlight the bold colors.
Lastly, don't be afraid to experiment with different hairstyles, especially if it's warm. Updos are a great option, and they're not just for weddings. You can go for a sleek bun or a messy updo, and they'll instantly make you look more polished and put together. The Princess of Wales and her daughter Princess Charlotte both had updos that carried the princess quality in them.
