We are reallllllly stretching our ROYGBIV category now with this week’s entry in our series, but by popular request, I present Stripes! For me, stripes are much like gold. Very easy to look garish, but also the potential to look absolutely spectacular. Let’s get started!
Victoria has worn this striped Dolce & Gabbana dress several times and I love it more each time I see it. These photos are from her dad’s 70th birthday party and display excellent family matching without being over the top.
Silvia wore this gown to the Nobels in the early 1990s. It’s…a lot.
Maxima wore this Mary Katrantzou dress to a children’s concert in 2016 and I think she nailed it. It’s not a “pretty” dress per se, but I think she carries it off quite well. Not everyone can wear Katrantzou, much less wear it well.
Mabel looking fresh as a daisy out and about in New York.
Eugenie getting her casual stripes on back in 2018 in this cute & figure flattering sundress. Shield your eyes from the shoes.
Catherine tried out a bit of Missoni when visiting Belfast earlier this year.
Diana looked quite smart in this pinstripe suit worn to a Centrepoint Christmas function.
I loved this dress Mathilde wore back in 2018. All the angles really work for her sometimes difficult to dress figure.
Martha Louise wore this interesting gown to Mary & Frederik’s wedding. I don’t love this dress, but can appreciate the details.
Sonja turned super agent while visiting Canada .
Rania wore this fun skirt when visiting Spain in 2015.
Some of Mozah’s finest looks fit into this category.
This fun gown was for the 2000 Rose Ball and Caroline looks great!
Tatiana in one of her more subdued outfits at a recent National Day. Love the styling here with the black beret and shoes.
I love the understated difficulty of this striped skirt. It’s really quite intricate but looks like a simple closet staple from afar.
YASSSSSS GURL. Get it, Bene.
Look at this snazzy lady suit Sofia wore last year!
Letizia stunned in this striped cocktail dress worn when Argentina came to visit in 2017.
