Elizabeth II: A Look at the Legacy Left by the Iconic Monarch in Terms of Power Dressing
The longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, died last week, leaving a void that will never be replaced. A void of authority, kingship, temper, and beauty. She is well known for both her powerful outfits and her indomitable spirit. Her distinctive style was developed over time with the help of her dressers and royal designers and was characterized by her dark colored dress, headgear and pair of gloves. Here are some examples of power wear patterns established by this legendary king.

The king experimented with every color on the color wheel during his reign, including canary yellow, lime green, fuchsia and navy blue.
