Over the years, Queen Rania of Jordan has become an icon across the globe not just for her efforts in humanitarian fields, but also for her impeccable style. The royal also seems to have nailed the art of balancing her wardrobe between much-loved international labels (think Ralph & Russo, Ermanno Scervino and Givenchy) and Middle Eastern brands, from Hama Fashion and L’afshar to Bouguessa, Bambah and Reemami. What ties all her picks together? An eye for elegance, and her latest ensemble serves as proof.

On November 8, Her Majesty stepped out in Jordan, joining Princess Taghrid  at the Amman Citadel, where the latter has been focusing on a project under the Princess Taghrid Institute for Development and Training. For her public appearance, Queen Rania went with a look that never fails her—a white shirt and blouse set. Her Zimmermann separates stood out for their intricate detailing: the button-down shirt featured a tie-up around the neck and balloon sleeves that created a unique silhouette, and her matching skirt came with deep pockets, and was cinched in place with a creamy white belt. The royal completed her denim-on-denim ensemble with a pair of metal and lambskin sunglasses by Chanel.
Often making a strong case for modest dressing, Queen Rania knows a thing or two about elevating her outfits with playful accessories. This time around, Her Majesty complemented her all-white Zimmermann look with the Chloe crossbody bracelet Nile bag in brown leather, and added a pop of colour to her look via ivory Dior pumps, accentuated with hints of powder blue, olive green and deep purple. The overall effect: yet another winning look that’s as bookmark-worthy as it is approachable.

Princess Diana’s Favorite Shirts are Still a Fall Essential

Fall is firmly on our style agenda now, and we’d like all midriff-flossing pics to be archived, thank you very much. Making the shift from crochet to cashmere is easier said than done, however, and trans-seasonal wardrobe binders, like classic shirting, are key to making a smooth transition. From oversized “boyfriend” styles, to starched Oxfords and simple cotton poplin button-downs, there are few fashion conundrums a shirt can’t solve.

Diana, Princess of Wales – a woman whose style was so minutely analysed during (and after) her life – often relied upon this failsafe staple. A freshly-laundered shirt tucked into high-waisted, straight leg jeans with Tod’s Gommino loafers became her personal uniform for overseas trips during the late ’90s. It was the perfect, fuss-free formula to take her from Red Cross visits to state meetings, ensuring she looked pulled-together and entirely capable, without ever being too showy.

She had of course relied upon shirting throughout her royal career, but, as was the way with the rest of her clothing, she streamlined her looks over time. Gone were the days of gold buttons, exaggerated sleeves and other ’80s frippery, Diana’s best shirts were quintessential Sloane ranger – the stiff, straight-talking styles you could (still) find at Ralph Lauren, Gap and Budd.
