Royals in our clothes

Seeing the picture of Mary of Denmark in a Zara blouse gave me the idea of creating a thread where we can collect pictures of the royals in more accessible fashion like Zara, Mango, H&M, Top Shop, etc

I think it's a good idea. It's nice to see a princess wear clothes accessible for us

According to the Daily Mail, Catherine's blue day-after-the-wedding-dress is from Zara

I wonder if Catherine is making a very definite acknowledgement to the fact that we are living in a time of austerity. Many of her recent purchases really ARE affordable and accessible to many people. I think this sends out a positive message during these hard times.

Incidentally, we were talking at lunch today about Catherine's legs; the general view of the fashion commentators seems to be that Catherine has wonderful legs which were often covered in boots [even when it wasn't winter] and so have only emerged now as one of her best features. [Her lovely hair had usually been given as her 'best feature']

Kate has always been dressing in reasonable price tag outfits before and after her engagement. I don't see her changing anytime soon.

It only makes sense why Victoria wears H&M sometimes as its Swedish & Letizia wears Mango & Zara as they are Spanish, its good seeing them supporting their home country brands that everyone can afford.

Are, but it was in the best possible taste: I am trying to work out my outfits for FIVE days at Royal Ascot [easy-peasy for our menfok, they just have to wear Morning Dress] and I was moaning about what to wear on my feet - heels are stylish but it is HARD to walk about on turf in heels and I was lightheatedly saying it was a pity I couldn't wear boots a la Catherine Middleton, and this led to brief discussion about how she had often kept her legs encased in her boots, yet had the most fanstastic legs....

Hope I am exonerated now!

Alex


PS- If you have any ideas about my Royal Ascot footwear dilemma.....

Wearing affordable/attainable is not what I'm after with Royal ladies. I want them to set trends, not follow them. Be aware that I'm not being snarky, but you'd think one of them would have a personal designer/dressmaker/tailor.

I like the combination. Dazzling us with their designer gowns and then once in a while showing up in a skirt you can find at H&M

I do agree somehow but if royals keep on wearing high end designers then the press will be all over them for spending. Many royals do mix their outfits, they do wear designers, affordable brands and they do have things custom-made for them. I would disagree that for every event they did wear a couture piece which would be really expensive, speaking over $50,000 and outfit.

I do like how royals do wear Zara and H&M pieces but do it wear it doesn't look causal (talking about Mary).

I'm not interested so much in daywear, just eveningwear. One can achieve the same daytime look from shopping either a discount store or high-end.
