King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima visited a number of villages near Rotterdam yesterday, making stops in Bergambacht, Berkenwoude, Krimpen aan den IJssel and at a guest farm in Gouderak. For these visits, Queen Máxima repeated her coffee coloured straw hat with upswept slice brim, pairing it with a bright pink dress, matching brown purse, wrap, gloves and shoes, and a statement beaded collar necklace and earrings.
This shade of brown might not have been my first choice for a neutral to pair with the otherwise bright ensemble but it links well with the orange beads in the statement jewellery set and the overall ensemble makes unexpected sense. It’s a vibrant and lighthearted look that Queen Máxima wears very well. This was this hat’s seventh outing with as many different dresses and made for one of my favourite pairings to date.
