An ongoing love affaire with all things fashionable, tasty and fun

Diamond Gals

In honor of the Diamond Jubilee across the pond this past weekend let’s show some love for the royal fashions worn by Queen Elizabeth II over the years, as well as the new fashionable royal, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Don’t they look great sitting side-by-side? Formal, chic, and well-put together.

Who knew a kerchief could be so regal? I love the Jackie O style coat with the great broach. Parfait!

Pretty pink pleats and a perfectly adorable bow-adorned hat.

Green florals are a great style for Spring, she looks fresh and fashionable, never stodgy.

Want to steal their style and channel these glamorous but demure and chic women?

Classic coats and matching hats are the order of the day.

What’s the first thing that I think of when I’m looking at these ladies? Amazing coats and dresses, and killer lady-like accessories.

London Fog toffee double breasted belted long trench – $150 @ Bluefly.com

Long Cotton Trench – $995 @ Burberry

ASOS Long Line Blazer in Cotton – $125 @ Asos.com

Why not try on a long coat, choose either calf-length or knee-length depending on your height and build. You want a silhouette that will lengthen your form, not truncate it.

You can also see my favorite Kate Middleton looks broken down in this MCLV Style File or this Looks of the Week post.

* And yes, this title is stolen from A League of Their Own. 🙂 Shameless.
