Princess Mary has us wanting to skip right over the last couple of weeks of winter and straight into spring with the sunny outfit she wore to the Copenhagen 2021 Human Rights Forum this week.
Opening the three-day event, which is an international LGBTQI+ forum promoting diversity and equality, the Australian-born royal wore a candied pink pair of palazzo trousers that are the perfect inspiration for spring/summer dressing.
Retailing for $790, the wide-legged pants are by 3.1 Phillip Lim and feature a turned up hem and pressed seams running down the front of the legs.
Unfortunately, the exact blouse she was wearing isn't available in Australia, but AERE has a number of similar designs for $90, including one that's currently on sale for Afterpay Day.
Photographed entering the event under a rainbow umbrella, Mary was joined by the representative for Copenhagen Pride, Lars Henriksen, before taking to the stage to deliver the opening address.
She described the forum as a “celebration of diversity”, and said, “We come together from around the world, united in the belief that we are born equal in rights and opportunities, that we have the right to belong despite our differences and with a dream or vision of a world full of societies that are inclusive and embracing, and where there is space for each and every one of us to be true to ourselves and be exactly who we are.”
If the northern hemisphere’s spring/summer trends are anything to go by, we should expect to be seeing lots of cheerful colours peppering our shopfronts shortly, with lots of bright pinks, pale yellows, greens, lavender and tangerine hues.
Psychologist Dr. Dawnn Karen told The Zoe Report that the optimistic colours reflect people’s desire to move on from the recent pandemic-related lockdowns and inject a little positivity back into life.
“Our relationship with colours and clothing has evolved, people are paying more attention to it as a healing modality,” she says.
If you're looking to add a few more bright colours to your wardrobe ahead of spring, the Afterpay Day sales are on this week and include many new season collections. Check out our full list of participating brands here.
