You’ll love the reason why Queen Elizabeth dresses in bright colours.


Ever imagined why bright colours are called as bright colours? They are so beaming that they can make you notice even in a place filled with thousands of people.

Queen Elizabeth is no ordinary person. She indeed needs to stand out from the crowds.

Years of experience and determination pays off. This is the reason Queen Elizabeth knows exactly what and how she has to be in a place surrounded by the public.

Her Majesty has always been an inspiration not only to the public but to known personalities too. She knows exactly what it takes to be the centre of attention. 

So, what does Queen Elizabeth do to stand out from the crowd?

She wears bright and pretty outfits. According to a recent interview with Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, Queen Elizabeth’s lifelong obsession with bright coloured clothing is not just because she loves the look. Wondering what is it actually for? She very well knows it’s key to always stand out for her fans.

Sophie said: “She actually needs to stand out for people to be able to say ‘I saw the Queen today’. Don’t forget that when the Queen turns up somewhere, the crowds are two, three, four, 10, 15 and goes deep. Now, someone wants to be able to say they saw a bit of the Queen’s hat as she went past”.

This choice of bright clothing? It comes down to a wardrobe theory.

It’s beloved by most women who are in leadership roles. It’s something like confidence dressing, which can help you command a room or maybe a palace. In Queen’s case, it adds up the entire nation. 

Nothing Her Majesty puts-on happens by accident. According to the couture designer, Karl-Ludwig Rehse, who also started creating outfits for her in 1988, her outfits are planned weeks, possibly months in advance.

He said: “It’s not at all like the way we all do. Here, the case is not that the Queen is going somewhere next week and thinks, ‘What am I going to wear, blue or green?’. Sometimes it’s about 6 or 12 months or maybe longer”.

Moreover, Queen Elizabeth doesn’t simply leave her outfits up to the designers or the staff.

Rehse tells us, she’s quite hands-on with her fashion choices. Rehse said: “I do get a lot of comments from her. The pressure is there but I take great joy out of it. And to be honest? It’s very rewarding to see the Queen wearing my clothes in public”.
