Talk about a Maxxinista: Queen Máxima of the Netherlands has a royal style all her own (except we’re betting she’s never stepped foot in a T.J. Maxx). And while we’re big fans of Meghan Markle’s and Kate Middleton’s (and even Lady Amelia of Windsor’s) fashionable wardrobes, we’re loving Her Majesty Máxima’s penchant for wide-brim hats, embellished coats and resort wear. Here, nine of our favorite looks.

One of many wide-brimmed hats the queen has worn that work for royal events just as well as on vacation.

And you thought the Duchess of Sussex rocked a cape dress best, didn’t you?

Wearing Danish designer Claes Iversen, Queen Máxima arrives in Nuremberg, Germany, looking like a modern-day (and slightly more edgy) Jackie O.

NBD, just a golden goddess queen in all her beauty (also, we were seriously mistaken in believing you can’t have a gorgeous tan glow if you live in the Netherlands).

So what if she blended in with the red carpet? Her one-shouldered pantsuit stole the show.

Normally we’d say too much ruffle, but we’re loving the Barbra Streisand in Meet the Fockers vibes.

And little did we know she was the inspo for Beyoncé’s “Lemonade”

Plaid and velvet? Why the hell not?

We repeat: Wide. Brimmed. Hats. (Also: Summer outfit research is complete.)
