To quote Lorde, “we’ll never be royals” but that doesn’t mean we can’t be inspired by their smart styling and timeless looks. The women of royal families are incessantly photographed and held to standards that eclipse those assigned to run-of-the-mill celebrities. Appearing presentable doesn’t suffice for a princess, queen, duchess, etc… With such titles one must forever strive to be the ultimate example of propriety, composure, and grace with the objective being to encourage national pride, participate in charitable efforts, and maintain international support; political tasks that the likes of Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez, and the Kardashian Kollective are exempt from.
Leading by example is no revolutionary concept, however women of royal standing own a power to do so that has nothing to do with social niceties or perfect posture. The very choices they make as to which top to pair with which skirt, which designer(s) they favor, how to style their hair, and how to apply their makeup all convene to project an image painstakingly cropped and manicured for the purpose of presentation and hopeful influence. This opportunity presented itself on June 19th, 2014 to the newly crowned Letizia, Princess of Asturias – the Queen Consort of Spain. Now that she will be under more scrutiny than ever she has a chance to invigorate her country’s drowsy economy through her fashion choices. Many British royals don homegrown labels like Alexander McQueen, Jenny Packham, and L.K. Bennett – an example the stylish Spanish queen may very well follow.
For those of you that paid attention to Kate Middleton’s transformation into the Duchess of Cambridge you might recall that after repeatedly wearing specific items like nude colored pantyhose, L.K. Bennett patent leather heels, and form flattering Issa dresses, not only did everyone in the United Kingdom (and many fans abroad) start mimicking her, but many of those styles sold out! What’s more, with the international economy being rocked by instigators like the Eurozone crisis, The Duchess has continually opted for looks that combine high & low fashion like a Roland Mouret gown with a ZARA necklace, grounding her style in a reality we can actually touch and own. A true royal of the people, Kate is also known to wear plenty of jeans, often by J Brand, Paige, and Goldsign, for both on-duty and off-duty appearances.
Perhaps you don’t readily equate SINGER22 to royal-ready fashion but you’ll be surprised at the number of pieces we have in stock that are tasteful, chic, and perfectly suited for anyone hoping to exude a bit of Kate or Letizia’s classic flair.
