One of my favourite summer hats in natural straw is the large picture hat worn by Queen Máxima. This classic piece, with wide stripes of texture woven into the straw and a gently curved brim (worn once, folded all the way down), carries a relaxed and beachy vibe we don’t often see in royal hats worn for formal engagements. Máxima has paired this Fabienne Delvigne design with four very different outfits on four different foreign tours and I am curious, dear readers, about which pairing you think works best.
