    No matter which corner of the globe you call home, it's hard to ignore the ongoing celebrations taking place in and around Buckingham Palace, and around the world. The Diamond Jubilee is putting Queen Elizabeth II in the spotlight, marking the 60th anniversary of her coronation. And, as today marks the beginning of Great Britain's Central Weekend festivities, we at can't let the celebration pass without at least raising our glass. So, we're marking this momentous occasion with the kind of fashionable pomp and circumstance fit for a king queen.

    While we could all benefit from taking a page out of Elizabeth's book — specifically the one which mentions the approximately 600 charities with which the Queen is involved — we're recognizing the elegance and grace that has made her a monarch of style as well as substance.

Join in on the royal festivities as we round up 12 Queen Elizabeth-approved (well, we can only hope) sartorial ideas to channel 60 years of timeless style. Here's to many, many more.

Yes, we're opposed to frostbitten legs, but we’ve become really good at layering warm tights and tossing on high boots to help fight the chill. Because, nobody should have to give up skirts just because it's winter. read
