When dressing up, the Swedish royal proves you don't always have to reach for a dress

Stockholm Fashion Week 2021 has seen a brevvy of well-heeled guests - yet few have had quite the impact as Crown Princess Victoria who graced the event yesterday in a cream tailored suit.

While tailoring is a uniform of the Scandi-cool girl, the future Queen's take was a tad more elevated than the oversized style that the Scandi style set have become known for. The single-breasted jacket, with notched lapels and straight with flap pockets, had a long line, hitting mid thigh over the accompanying wide-leg trousers. The trousers draped elegantly over tan pumps.

And while a royal in a pantsuit isn't necessarily groundbreaking, it’s the suit's impeccable fit that had onlookers Googling “tailors near me”. Under the blazer, she wore a top in a slight variation of the cream hue, a sartorial lesson that picking a colour and committing to it, is always a good idea.

To keep the look tonal, she paired it with a subtle snake skin clutch and silver feather earrings. Hair was swept back in a simple, yet chic bun.

Victoria attended Stockholm Fashion Week on Tuesday August 31st as part of the Sustainability Fashion Hub talks. This isn’t the first time the royal has been part of SFW, in February earlier this year she delivered the opening speech to the AW21 event.

Stockholm Fashion Week runs until Thursday September 2nd, and is not only a celebration of Swedish design but a chance for brands to discuss the importance of sustainability within the fashion world.
