A white sheath dress
Whether it's worn formally with a fascinator and clutch, or casually with pumps and a crossbody, the royal women of the world rely heavily on the sheath dress, and the white variation is a favourite. Crisp and fresh, the knee-length hem makes it work-appropriate, while the slim fit flatters the shape. Just ask the Duchess of Cambridge, the Queen of Spain and the Duchess of Sussex.
A leather pencil skirt
You might think leather skirts are more rock and roll than royalty, but a pencil shape in a luxe, dark shade is the perfect counterweight to a formal blouse. Queen Letizia, Duchess Meghan and Queen Rania are all fans.
A casual shirtdress
Houndstooth, denim or in bright cotton, the shirtdress straddles the line between casual and comfortable and office-friendly. Emulate Duchess Meghan, Queen Letizia and Duchess Catherine and opt for a waist-cinching belt and a flattering knee-length hem.
The perfect grey blazer
Whether it's a classic fit like Duchess Catherine, a slightly oversized silhouette like Duchess Meghan or an equestrian take like Charlotte Casiraghi, a grey blazer adds style and substance to any look.
A long-sleeved red dress
Looking for a dress that will carry you from weddings to cocktail parties and work events and back again? Duchess Meghan, Queen Rania and Princess Mary all advocates for the long-sleeved dress in deep red. Keep the cut classic while relying on the colour to add the extra kick.
A well-tailored trouser suit
Royals do menswear, too. Taking after Princess Diana's silk version in 1986, Queen Rania and Duchess Meghan have both championed the clean-lined black suit. Worn with a simple white blouse underneath, the look is sharp and striking.
A caped dress
When it comes to more formal occasions, you're more likely to see the royals opt for a cape than a tiara. The fanciful style adds levity into a usually simple sheath dress. Duchess Meghan, Queen Letizia and Queen Mathilde have all proved why.
