Queen Maxima of the Netherlands is giving some major workwear inspiration with her latest look.

Jumping on one of the key trends for A/W, the Queen’s satin dress featured wide bell-shaped cuffs in a design by Belgian fashion house Natan and a pair of Kate Middleton-approved nude patent heels. She complemented the outfit with a simple gold cuff, earrings and nude high heels.

Maxima was attending the second King Willem I lecture at the Koppert Cress nursery garden in Westland, as part of her royal duties: she is the honourary chair of the King Willem I foundation. The organisation aims to raise awareness about positive developments in the Dutch economy.

Earlier this month, the monarch’s wife, 46, and children posed for new royal portraits. Amalia, 13, Alexia, 12, and Ariane, ten posed alongside their mother in photographs shot by Erwin Olaf. The portraits, which are currently on display at the Museum Jan Cunen, Oss, are part of the exhibition Women of Orange - Portraits of Five Queens.

Today's public appearance marks one of only a handful in recent weeks, since the death of her father Jorge Horacio Zorreguieta in August. Her late father had been battling Hodgkin's Lympoma and she was joined by other members of the Dutch royal family at his funeral in her native Buenos Aires, Argentina.
