Queen Mary of Denmark looked summer-ready in a chic casual suit and matching blue sunglasses for a family event earlier this week, accessorising with chunky gold earrings and chic low ponytail to elevate the look. 

Queen Mary has proved that our summer capsule wardrobes don't need to be filled exclusively with floral dresses and wedged sandals this year after she stepped out in a stunning summery take on the two-piece suit to celebrate her son Crown Prince Christian's school graduation.

Bringing a sophisticated take on the business-casual dress code to the event, the royal channeled the quiet-luxury look in a laid-back linen suit, that Ralph Lauren have since discontinued, which featured bold blue and white pinstripes and a flattering tie detailing at the jacket waistline. 

Channel Queen Mary's Style

Women's two-piece trouser suits have been a massively trending style over the 2024 spring/summer season, with the style being super versatile in both silhouette, fabric, and colour, allowing people to tailoring the look to their own personal style and choose a colour that suits them best

Queen Mary leaned into her muted yet bold colour palette of subdued blue with a tan, open toe sandal - the same pair she wore just days prior with her printed maxi skirt that proved heatwave outfits don’t need to be complicated. 

The suit would have looked equally great with some heels for a more formal touch, or a pair of her best white trainers that would've given a more cool, casual vibe.

Shop Accessories Like Queen Mary's

Perhaps to allow her son to shine as the centre of attention on his graduation day, Mary kept her accessories to a minimum, pairing the suit with a pair of matching blue Gucci sunglasses and forgoing all jewellery bar a unique pair of gold, drop-detail earrings from Elhanti and a delicate chain necklace. 

Further leaning into the quiet of the quiet-luxury look, the royal kept her hair off her face with a simple yet chic low ponytail, gently sweeping the hair back to keep volume at her roots. 

Her makeup was kept minimal, with a focus on bronzed, glowing skin over any overly glam eyeshadow or lipstick. This, paired with the casual ponytail, worked brilliantly against the soft linen fabric of her suit. Plus, with brown shoes over a harsh black, this was only further highlighted.

Queen Mary has truly given us all a masterclass in laid-back summer dressing with this fabulous look.
