She’s always been the queen of style: the outfits of Elizabeth II in her youth

Queen Elizabeth II had an amazing taste

On September 8, Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain passed away. She was 96 years old. Many probably no longer remember how she looked in her youth and what outfits the Queen preferred. But she has always been the standard of style.

Since childhood, Elizabeth always dressed following the royal protocol, that is midi dresses and skirts, double-breasted coats, fancy collars, high white socks and gloves. Also, she usually held small reticule bags in her hands. The latter always stayed the Queen’s favorite accessory.

In her youth, Elizabeth preferred flowered tea dresses, midi skirts with pleats, and blouses with curly collars. And at official meetings, she appeared in plain suits with skirts below the knee, fitted jackets and shirt dresses.

Elizabeth’s wedding dress was sewn by designer Norman Hartnell. Special for this important event, the designer made an evening dress with a 4-meter train with rhinestones and pearls embroidered on it. Hartnell also designed the Queen’s coronation dress in 1953.

Raincoats and coats of Her Majesty were fitted with a slight flare. Models with accent shoulders and unusual collars were often chosen by the monarch.

The evening dresses Elizabeth chose were full skirted and shallow necked. She wore white gloves and a fur cape as accessories. Dresses with trains were banned in order to avoid embarrassment. It was unacceptable for anyone to step on the hem and tear it off.

Pearls have been an integral part of Elizabeth’s image from a young age. A double or triple pearl necklace and neat pearl earrings were preferred by the Queen over diamonds and other precious stones.
