Are you ready for this Arctic blast? No, us neither. According to weather forecasters, we’re set for a chilly month with temperatures plummeting across the country – and could even go into February. Brr! Fear not though, as we’re taking a little outfit inspiration from that cold weather and embracing the blues – icy blue to be precise. We’re not talking Elsa from Frozen, but more the royals, who love to embrace this frosty hue. A fresh take on pastel shades of blue, it’s a refreshingly easy to wear colour that has all the airs and graces of a regal tone too. Click through our gallery to see how some of favourite royals from Kate Middleton to the Queen wear it.
The Duchess of Cornwall
Cream is definitely your friend with this shade of blue, as Camilla proves – keeps things fashionably fresh.
Princess Beatrice’s top to toe wearing of the colour is giving us major winter wedding outfit ideas.
The Duchess of Cambridge
Kate’s stunning Emilia Wickstead coat is a springy, welcome change from a winter coat standard – black and navy.
Her dress was considered daring at the time, and this Catherine Walker dress is definitely one of Princess Diana’s greatest style moments.
The Duchess of Sussex
If further proof was needed that ice blue and cream are a match made in heaven, we’ve got Meghan Markle to thank for this seriously chic sartorial moment.
Princess Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz
Princess Deena’s style is low-key fabulous, and we’re so here for this lightweight yet masculine, oversize coat. We want one for spring.
Lady Gabriella Windsor
Matching her mum Princess Michael of Kent in this delightful colour, we’re obsessed with Lady Gabriella Windsor’s evening gown. It’s giving us summer feels.
The Countess of Wessex
Sophie positively stunned at Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May, in a gorgeous duchess satin skirt, perfectly complemented by a blue-grey embroidered top.
HRH is known for her love of bright colour and we think this more neutral shade looks terrific on her. The Queen chose this Angela Kelly cashmere coat to celebrate her granddaughter Princess Eugenie’s wedding back in October.
Princess Diana and Prince William
OK, so maybe not true style inspo but adorable nonetheless…twinning is winning.
