With the popularity of Royals such as Kate Middleton and Princess Mary it is no wonder that we have seen a trend towards regal fashion. Over the last year many designers have taken inspiration from Queens, and past eras when royalty were the centre of society.

Gold, ornate embroidery, crowns, luxurious fabrics and jewels have all been taking centre stage on the runway. Take Alexander McQueen’s Elizabethan inspired collection for example. The Fall 13 RTW collection included ruffs, hooped skirts, lace trains and endless amounts of pearls. Every garment was incredibly detailed giving a sense of luxury and craftsmanship which only added to the rich, royal feel of this collection.  Dolce and Gabbana also contributed to this regal trend, both their Spring and Fall collections had a royal flare with decadent gold finishes and plenty of crowns.

So how do you create your own outfit that is fit for a queen? Think classic but you can be dramatic by adding embellishments and detail such as gold embroidery, pearls, lace and beautiful fabrics like rich velvet or brocade.
