It’s time to celebrate our favourite monarch this week: the Queen’s birthday falls on April 21, and she’s turning 90. Taking a look back over her reign, it’s easy to see why we’re a little in love with Elizabeth – she’s fierce and fabulously fashionable, and an undeniable style icon. Here are just a few of the reasons why…
1. She Loves Colour
Never afraid to play with colour, the Queen loves to stand out from the crowd. She rocks vibrant outfits in some seriously royal hues – we might have to borrow this sky-blue wool coat from her one day.
2. She Follows Trends
Did we mention that the Queen knows her trends? Spotted in springtime pastels, the Queen looks perfect for the warmer weather in a lilac ensemble with contrasting accents on her hat.
3. She Rocks Prints
Block colours can get boring – but the Queen rocks her prints and patterns just as well, overshadowing the beauty of the Chelsea Flower Show in her stunning floral ensemble.
4. She’s A Classic
If anyone knows their staple pieces, it’s the Queen. A classic handbag is a wardrobe must-have, and Her Royal Highness is often spotted wearing structured silhouettes in black and taupe – if it’s good enough for her, it’s good enough for us.
5. She Accessorises
Here at MyBag, we love a woman who knows how to accessorise – and boy, does the Queen do it well. Rarely without a statement scarf, sophisticated hat or simple pair of gloves, the Queen injects some fun into her looks with a plethora of accessories.
