The royal is our Sunday-to-Thursday style inspiration.

We’ve long lauded Queen Rania Al-Abdullah for her humanitarian initiatives, wise words and tender interactions with the people of Jordan.

And she’s also one of the bookmarked women on our Instagram feed, for her innate ability to nail modest dressing with a contemporary twist.

One area the royal really shines in is office-appropriate ensembles, blending chic separates with an effortlessness that we’re always on a mission to copy.

And this week has been a great example of that knack with workwear. Case in point?

Queen Rania sported this head-turning dress to launch Amman Design Week, pairing the monochrome number with some latticed booties we’re immediately adding to our shopping list.

(A midi-length skirt with ankle-high boots is also a look we’re going to be returning to our wardrobes now that summer’s dying down).

The royal also kept to the same elegant colour palette for a meeting with media and social media influencers, donning a high-necked blouse with razor-thin cutouts along the neckline.

We dabbled with the idea of recreating the look on one of our own white shirts, but we’re pretty sure it’ll end up looking more ‘got caught in a sand storm’.

The combo was pared-back yet timeless – and the same could be said of Queen Rania’s ensemble for a meeting at her namesake foundation.

That black shirt might look simple at first, but you’ll notice a gentle cascade of ruffles around that neck when you peer closely.

Basically, after this week our Autumn/Winter wardrobe now reads: monochrome floaty blouses, midi dresses, statement booties.
