Royal Outfit of the Day: March 13

Queen Máxima visited a healthcare facility in a repeated Oscar de la Renta brown and cream houndstooth coat (style seen in dress form on the runway in the Fall 2007 RTW collection), paired with brown everything else: dress, stockings, shoes, and wide brim hat.
Máxima's had this coat for several years (in fact, it took part in one of her most famous sartorial twin appearances with Mathilde). And while the sum of this outfit is just sort of aggressively brown, I still renew my call for more Oscar de la Renta on the royal runway. Queen Sofia's a fan and bits have been seen on a handful of other ladies, but not nearly as often as you'd think, given his style. Hmm.
