Channeling The Queen: 60 Years Of Regal Style

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.
Between the extravagant jewels (where does one wear a tiara?), the classic ladylike accessories, the woodsy, heritage moments, and regal pieces that pack a powerful punch, Queen Elizabeth has inspired us to welcome an element of majesty into our own wardrobe. 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.
