Fashion Fit for a Queen

We invited Lesley Scott, the editor of Fashiontribes, to create a look inspired by The Tudors. Check out her suggestions for a modern summer style that any Tudor Queen would loose her head over:

The rockstars of their day, the Tudors knew how to dress to impress. However, even if your budget isn’t king-sized, you can steal some inspiration from the splashy fashion-conscious show with a savvy mix of knowing where to scrimp (the basics) and where to splurge (the bling).

Carolee Choker

Carolee Choker

The large and lovely statement chokers on Mary Tudor (played by Sarah Bolger, left) and Anne of Cleaves (Joss Stone, right) are just the thing to build an entire outfit around, especially in a color palette inspired by creamy white of the jewelry and gorgeous pewter’y silver of Stone’s gown. Because all eyes will be on the stunning Carolee pearl & crystal choker, keep the rest of the outfit streamlined and neutral in tones of gray/silver and white.

A tee that fits fabulously is worth spending on, but white jeans or trendy metallic sandals not so much as they are summer staples you’ll want to replace each year. And for a surprisingly modern, unexpected touch (that also taps into the current Chanel-inspired trend of see-through accessories) instead of a predictable white summer bag, try a super-affordable clear acrylic train case.
