Princess Beatrix was in Den Helde today to officially re-open of the National Lifeboat Museum Dorus Rijkers. She used the occasion to début a new hat in sky blue and white straw. With a square crown wrapped in two-toned double bands, the hat received further graphic punch from a stripe of white straw around the brim, placed to appear as a second stacked brim. The sharp and graphic lines of this piece are softened by the colour, which is so very pretty on the Dutch princess. We’ve seen Beatrix in hats this shape before although the contrasting colour is a new twist. It’s a good twist, don’t you agree?
Previously Worn: I believe this is a new hat
