Elizabeth II and fashion, a quiet union
Elizabeth II of England is a very influential woman, no doubt, both in the history of England and in the moda, because her outfits have always represented the way in which she wants to show herself to the world. His long reign has been full of important events and significant changes., and the queen has always lived up to expectations when it comes to her looks and has known how to evolve and adapt but without losing focus on his position and person.
Elizabeth II came to the throne in the early 50, a key moment in the history of fashion as it was undergoing a radical change. Women were beginning to wear more comfortable and cheerful clothing, At the same time that the concept of “pret a porter” y la moda, slowly, went from being a few to increasingly flooding the streets.
Although the queen has been criticized by some for her choice of clothing, she herself has defended her style, saying: «I think people expect a queen to be boring and dress conservatively., but i don't think like that». As for her favorite outfits, the queen has said that she likes the clothes that is «comfortable and practical».
This was explained by The Mail in 2015 «Every outfit worn in public is carefully calibrated to inspire or remind, to show gratitude or respect, to express a sense of power or familiarity. His Majesty does not set or follow trends, but although she is deaf to the call of fashion sirens, has its own style”.
Queen Elizabeth II has one of the largest wardrobes in the world, con más de 3.000 clothing. as they say – that I have not seen – the wardrobe is divided into sections for each season.
In it we find mostly garments made to measure and to your liking and very few catwalk garments or massive brands.. Although other Royals like Kate have been conquered by these brands, the queen tends to bet more on local creators and designers.
5 Elizabeth II style keys … for our day to day
¿Analyze only the stylistic keys of Elizabeth II? ¡No! Let's go a little further and I'm going to try to show you how these give us ideas for our day to day. Sí, si, even if we look nothing like nothing at all like the historical head of the british empire.
fashion changes, the style remains
Elizabeth II is not a fashion victim, we have that clear, pero yes, she plays with fashion and style to reinforce her presence, above all, demonstrating not only the power that his position has, but also the “tranquility” of which he boasts as a person.
The Queen has always made elegance her quiet place in terms of fashion, and their “camera” stylists or designers” have been able to take advantage of this. Por supuesto, how fashion is alive, over the years, the queen has worn a wide variety of styles, but more linked to the form or concepts (por ejemplo, from evening gowns to skirt and jacket suits) than to “passing” trends or fads” marked by decades (although hopefully an eighties queen loaded to the ears, no? Haha well he also had his moments hey….).
It is true that over time – that there has been a lot, además – we have been able to see the queen in many situations, more or less casual, more or less gala or more or less urban and of course she has worn almost all kinds of outfits, more serious, More fun, more prints, more simple, more luxurious or more sporty but always according to their criteria of comfort and being favored and of course without skipping the etiquette or protocol a bit.
Their looks are usually very simple and, although always very polished, they do not attract too much attention so that we can focus on "the one that goes inside the clothes". ¿How can we apply this in our daily looks?? Being clear about who we are and what we need on each occasion to show ourselves to the world
Monochrome never fails (and if it fails, resort to printing).
Although her wardrobe has adapted to fashion trends over the years, there is always a constant element: her love for monochrome looks (mostly pastel).
throughout his reign, has adopted monochromatic looks that have captivated his subjects. ¿Why she has chosen this style and why it is so important to her? LQueen Elizabeth II wears the same type of clothes almost every day: a light colored dress, a jacket or coat, some shoes and a bag. Bien, ¿how to make every day "same"” be different in a clear concise way and without getting out of "its pattern"?, ¡well changing color!
These Monochrome Looks Have Become Her Personal Brand And People Love Them. It is certainly a very practical idea and it is something that, in addition to making it striking without going overboard and maintaining elegance, allows you to lengthen the figure and save time and energy (her and the designers) in the clothes, leaving his space and presence, pero without making it the “main topic of conversation”. ¿how goes the queen? ¡pink! Chimp the conversation.
Curiosity: ¡His favorite color is yellow! Like mine!
Another key to why monocolor is so that, además, be easily identifiable in the crowd, a way to stand out and be seen “from afar”. This is what we can take into account when using this tip in our day to day, the day you feel like standing out, go all out for a total color (claro, as long as they are not black or white, that the effect is much more limited).
Although her monochrome looks are fashion history, ehe style of Isabel II also has a multitude of prints in her career, almost always with the same base: not very big and with lady touches. Paintings, flores (as I mentioned the other day in Instagram the queen is a huge fan of the Liberty print), stripes or even drawings have covered the body of the queen and in a tremendously curious way, no matter how different they are from each other ¡they all fit into his style and we see them very much in his vein! ¿true?
Make the “seasons” clear” and the protocol
Queen Elizabeth II carries protocol by flag. Always try to live up to expectations and comply with all socially imposed rules. She has never been an "outsider"” but has been able to take advantage of these rules by turning them into a form of visa. Although this is not always easy, the monarch wears it with elegance and naturalness.
This key is simple and clear. In winter winter colors and fabrics, in summer their own, the same spring…. The day looks have to be noticed that they are from days and the night ones that are noticed, a lot, what are holidays. ¿What can we learn from this style key of Isabel II? That when fashion fights the elements we usually lose out. So let's leave the lana for winter and floral print for spring.

Además, these bags launch (and have launched) inn clear message of independence and self-sufficiency and even professionalism reinforcing Isabel's firm character: “I carry with me the things I need”
Por supuesto hats are other key points of the style and Elizabeth II, always matching the outfit, according to Hello magazine, her favorites are those that include some flora decoration and are used as a way to close sometimes very sober looks that manage to stand out thanks to these extra focal points.

Unfortunately Elizabeth has never become a British punk with Westwood or donned a Saville Road plaid suit., but that doesn't mean i don't bet on british fashion. SShe has always been a defender of British fashion, (although he has also dressed other big names like Christian Dior, Hubert de Givenchy or his love for Hermés scarves is clear).
Among the most prominent names of its designers we find pFor example Norman Hartnell who designed both her wedding dress and her coronation dress, without a doubt two of the most important looks of her life.
We also find countless names of creators and British brands that have dressed it over the years: Stewart Parvin, Launer London, Rachel Trevor Morgan, Simone Mirman, Ring & Davide, Hardy Armies;, Angela Kelly.
