We’re Vibing with Princess Victoria of Sweden’s Blue Velvet Suit

Once upon a time, Meghan Markle’s off-the-shoulder day-dresses and Kate Middleton’s Zara steals were boundary-pushing. But today, Princess Victoria totally rewrote the royal style game. 

It all started when Sweden’s 42-year-old heir to the throne and her husband Prince Daniel, 36, visited the National Board of Health and Welfare in Stockholm, which works to ensure social welfare, health and high-quality medical care for the Swedish population. For the outing, the Crown Princess sported an incredible royal blue velvet double-breasted blazer and matching trousers.

How Princess Victoria Styled Her Velvet Suit

She finished the chic look with navy drop earrings, a white bow-neck blouse, pointed-toe black leather heeled booties and a sleek bun. Her husband followed her lead and wore a navy blue double-breasted suit jacket of his own. He wore it with slacks, a black mock-neck sweater and black dress shoes.

Although the designer of Princess Victoria’s epic suit isn’t clear, we were able to find a couple of similar versions so you can recreate the look.

Available in both black and this eye-catching mint, this Topshop dupe is super similar to Princess Victoria’s blue velvet number. And the fact that it’s 50 percent off makes us all the more ready to give this nascent trend a whirl.

If mint is too much for you and black is too bland, consider giving these purple velvet trousers a whirl. Purple is a royal color, after all.
