  1. Ohhh dear. It's beginning to appear that huge horizontal stripes are becoming a thing. No, please, no...

    1. Your dislike of horizontal stripes is a personal dislike. There is a way to wear them successfully. It depends on the width, color and placement on the garment. Vertical stripes can end up looking like a circus tent if not done properly. If you have a good designer, you will have a beautiful garment. I know when I was younger, it was one of the "fashion rules" that horizontal stripes made you look wider. It is hard to get those rules out of our heads sometimes.

    2. Hi, chardonn8r -- personal likes and dislikes are pretty much what comments here are all about :-). I don't think that fashion "rules" are set in stone; there will always be individuals who manage to be sartorial mavericks and make it work for them. That said, I think that horizontal stripes acquired a reputation for making people look wider because that is what horizontal stripes actually tend to do. What is clear from the comments here is that many people find horizontal stripes charming, at least in some cases. It's ok to agree to disagree.

    3. No ill intent meant. Indeed, horizontal stripes do have a bad reputation. I find they don't deserve the bad reputation they have when a good designer uses them well. Other times, of course, they are the mistake they can often times be. We all have our likes and dislikes, that is for sure!

  2. Not sure if this is a dress or skirt and top. I hope it is a skirt as it would be so much better with a solid black top. If it is a dress, it is just not good. Also, wish her shoes were low pumps as these are too much of a little-girl style.

  3. Being so creative and talented herself, it’s not surprising that such expressions of creativity interests her. She is is probably one of the most interesting, intelligent and regal royal women around.

  4. Wonderful display of the Queen's talent for designing, and a textbook curtsy to her audience.
    Bravo! Her dress is a pretty combination of what seems to be taffeta and lace.

    1. I agree. She seems to enjoy life, dressing up, and having fun wherever she goes. At her age why should we quibble about shoes, socks, and dress? (It is my age also!)

    2. We do not "quibble" over shoes, socks, dress, etc. We give our opinion on fashion since that is what this website is about. Margrethe may have a lovely personality and her country may love her, which is great! I really like the skirt and do not mind the horizontal stripes, but I do agree with the previous comment that a solid black top would have been better.

  15. Someone needs to let the Danish royals know that (even if old and around for a while) wearing real fur in this dramatic quantities is not giving them a favourable image. They look insensitive and out of touch. It may have been the opulent, high class option centuries and even decades ago, but times have changed. It screams ‘I don’t care’ as loud as some now famous Zara jackets. I have a lot of admiration for the Danish royals, but on this one I give them two thumbs down.

    Jill.

    1. What would you do if you would own those fur coats in your wardrobe for decades? Throw them away? Give them to the homeless?
      I really do understand your point, but... Let's just hope there is no need that they buy "NEW-ones"...
