Royal Outfits of the Day: Catching Up with Mathilde and Máxima


Psst: Tiaras were out in London last night, plus a major new necklace loan for Kate! That's all been covered at the Jewel Vault, so hop right over here for that discussion.

It's been a minute since we hit up these two M&Ms. HIGHLIGHTS:

King Philippe and Queen Mathilde visited the province of Flemish Brabant.

This is a COAT right here. Mathilde loves some pattern and Mathilde loves some orange and this is maybe Mathilde's best combo of the two. 10/10 for coziness.

Queen Mathilde visited the Academy of Arts in Mons.

Speaking of Mathilde loving some pattern, this is lovely, no? Like a holdover from her India trip she couldn't wait to put to use.

It's her strangely fluffy-trimmed outfit from a few weeks ago, take two! Luckily, the second time's a charm. Make it a winter dress instead of sleeveless and make it a rich tapestry-looking fabric, and you tip the scale from silly to swanky. This is also the rare occasion on which I am super into her shoes.

From winter to summer, and who can blame her? A sunshine ensemble for a sunshine stroll - and the one thing buoying up a mixed bag of ensembles from the rest of the trip. So we'll end it here.
