Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri and his wife Juliana Awada arrived in Amsterdam today for the start of a for a two-day state visit. They were welcomed by King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima at an official ceremony at The Royal Palace on Dam Square.
Queen Máxima surprised with her hat choice this morning, bringing back a piece not worn since its debut on a visit to Quatar in March 2011. In textured natural straw, the pyramid shaped design is simply trimmed with a slim silk bow on the side of the hat in the same shade as the golden straw.
Máxima usually turns to her upswept ‘slice’ brim hats when looking for a natural straw hat to pair with an outfit and the choice of this piece gives us hat lovers some unexpected variety. That part, I really like. Now for the parts I don’t like- this shape is by no means my favourite, I have some questions about the rough looking finishing on the underside of the brim, and I wonder Máxima’s patterned skirt would have paired better with a pale grey straw hat.
My quibbles aside, it’s always fun to see a hat we’ve not seen in a while, particularly styled with a different ensemble. What do you think about this natural straw hat on Queen Máxima today?
