5 Reasons Why the Queen is Our Style Icon

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

The Queen - 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

The Queen - Pastel

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

The Queen - Patterns

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

The Queen - 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

The Queen - Accessories

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.
