My next installment of ‘Fall Fashion’ will be about Princess Victoria of Sweden. I think she seems to be a very affectionate and loving woman and a really good mother. I just find her so likable and I think that she will make a great queen. I cried when I watched her wedding to Prince Daniel years ago because she just seems like such a warm person. I think her love story with Daniel is so romantic! She makes Sweden proud. 🙂
I have admired Victoria’s grace in her position (which must be very stressful) and how she handles her responsibilities as the future queen since I was a teenager. So I am excited to put together this blog post highlighting some of her recent outfits that she has worn during official events the past few fall seasons. I love seeing how women dress while they work and I think she is always very professional and put together.
Let’s start with this pretty skirt and blouse combo that Victoria wore last September to a seminar in Stockholm.
I love the light blue lace skirt she is wearing here but I think my favorite thing about this outfit is the statement necklace. Here is a closer look.
I think what I like most about it is the light orange flowers in the necklace. As I said in my first post on Fall Fashion featuring Princess Mary of Denmark, I think orange is a great fall color and it is really fashionable this year. Here is a pretty necklace I found in the same color scheme as Victoria’s plus it also has pretty pearls surrounding the flowers. You have to click on the picture and get a close-up view of it to fully appreciate the details of the necklace, but the smaller flowers that look like they are sparkly-gold are actually full of rhinestones. I just love it! It would look great with a lighter blouse like Victoria wears or even paired with a sweater. So cute! And it’s only $14.99! I want it! 🙂
The next outfit that I chose for this blog also comes from September of 2014. This time Victoria attended an awards ceremony for children.
Again, I love how Victoria wears such pretty bold skirts. But I also really like the shoes she wears here. Here is a better picture of her shoes so you can see what I mean.
I like the sexy, strap-y look of these high heels. I found a similar pair by Steve Madden at a reasonable price and I think they would look especially gorgeous with red painted toenails. They are a great way to show off a good pedicure.
Browsing through all of the pictures of Victoria’s past fashion choices I can’t help but feel that she really knows how to accessorize her outfits! In this picture she is once again wearing a great skirt (this time a sparkly, sequined number). But I am going to focus on her clutch because goodness knows I love a good handbag. And this one is Zebra print! How fun!
After searching around I found this great Zebra clutch from Guess for $32. I really like it and think it would look good with lots of different outfits.
To prepare for fall I like to look at the coats that royal women wear since they have so many of them in so many colors. I already have a good black winter coat, a camel colored coat, and a red one for when I am feeling a bit adventurous. 🙂 But I really love the color of this coat that Victoria wore in November of 2009. It’s a pretty navy blue color. Navy blue is still a neutral color like black or brown that goes with pretty much everything yet it would make you stand out from the crowd since most people choose to wear black coats as soon as it gets cold outside.
I like these two examples of good fall coats in a similar color to what Victoria wore. First there is this aptly named “Victoria” coat by BGSD for $99. It has large military style buttons and is very much in style right now. It reminds me of the navy blue Zara blazer that is one of the Duchess of Cambridge’s favorite pieces of clothing.
Here is a picture of Kate wearing her Zara blazer to show you what I mean!
On the other hand, I also like this navy blue London Fog trench coat if you are looking for a different type of coat to add to your wardrobe. I think a trench coat is a staple item of clothing that every lady should have in her closet.
Love how the dress has a classy, vintage 1950s vibe to it.
I found this beautiful lace overlay Vera Wang gown that has a similar large white rose pattern against a simple cream backdrop. Nobody does lace quite like Vera Wang considering her expertise is in wedding dresses. So pretty!
I hope that you have had fun looking back on some of Princess Victoria’s fall fashion. Stay tuned for the next installment!
