Get Queen Maxima's Spring-Summer Modest Style

Updated: Jun 30

Maxima's modest looks are impossible to curate!

Every single one of Queen Maxima's modest outfits and hats are show-stopping. Each photo gives me a jolt of elation.

She's queen of the Netherlands, wife to King Willem-Alexander, and the mother of three lovely teenage girls. And she is often--no, always--seen stepping out in smashing outfits.

Maxima's signature bright colors and bold accessories echo her Argentinian roots. Her electric personality comes through in her smile.

Maxima's hats are handmade by couture milliners, and her dresses are from high-end designers. I've searched the web to find you affordable look-alikes.
