Described as “not afraid to try new things”, Princess Anne is hailed as stylish by many in the industry. The royal’s latest public appearance was testament to this as Anne wore a pair of knee-high tassel boots with a shoulder bag with a chain attached to it.

The Princess wore the modern outfit earlier this month to sovereign parade at the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst.

Commenting on her look for the occasion, fashion expert and personal stylist Samantha Harman said: “Considering she is 71, it’s great to see that Princess Anne isn’t afraid to try new trends or looks.

“We would usually expect to see her in a riding boot, so the fringing is an interesting twist.

“So many women get caught up on the idea that you have to stick to the same things as you get older, but this isn’t true at all.

“I think this is a great example of how to incorporate something new into your look.

“Take your classic items – the coat has been in Anne’s wardrobe for a number of years – and add a new accessory or a little twist.

“The look is still signature ‘Anne’ but shows her personality.”

Looking back at the royal’s other looks this year, Samantha noted she has re-worn many of her classic items, but given them a new lease of life.

The personal stylist said: “Princess Anne is probably one of the most underestimated royals when it comes to style.

“She is a good example of someone who re-wears items, buys classic shapes, but she isn’t afraid to try new things too.”

She added Anne’s style has not changed much over the past few decades.

“Sometimes we can look back through the archive at a celebrity’s wardrobe and think ‘wow! Their style has changed so much’.

“But Anne’s style is ‘classic Anne’.

“There isn’t some big ‘makeover’ or ‘change’ in her style over the last 50 years – you can see this is the same woman, with a strong sense of who she is.

“There are lots of elements in her outfits that transcend time and trends, from the 1970s to today.”

Samantha advised “taking a leaf out of Anne’s book” by recycling past outfits.

The personal stylist said: “Over the last decade or so, our consumption of fashion has accelerated to insane levels.

“We buy five times as many clothes now as we did in the 1980s.

“For a while, it was ‘uncool’ to re-wear things, and we can order a new dress with the click of a button for a few pounds.

“But, I think as we go into a new year, we can all take a leaf out of Anne’s book and look after and re-wear our clothes.”
