Wait, Queen Elizabeth Is Nailing These 2018 Trends

There's a reason we can't stop talking about the British royals: They all have amazing style. Sure, Meghan has garnered way, way more than her fair share of attention (and for good reason), but on a more underrated note, it's actually Queen Elizabeth II whose style is catching my eye these days. Hear me out—the 92-year-old queen has been a royal, well, her entire life. Born as the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, she's extremely well-versed in the rules that dictate royal style.

Once I took a closer look at what the queen's been wearing these days, it hit me: She's low-key nailing some of the biggest 2018 trends yet. It's surprising, considering just how rare it is that the royals wear any of the same trends as the fashion crowd. But although you won't see the queen in this summer's It items like strappy sandals or woven bags, her outfits have been nailing the biggest 2018 color trends: Gen-Z Yellow, neon green, pretty lilac, and bright fuchsia.

Sure, anyone could wear these colors, but the queen's impeccably coordinated tonal looks are quite possibly the best way to approach wearing these buzzy colors. But don't take my word for it—see how the queen is wearing four of the biggest color trends of the year and shop pieces inspired by her outfits.

The queen didn't just lightly test out the lime green trend—she fully committed to a tonal look recently during her first solo visit with Meghan Markle. It got me thinking—if the queen can pull off a lime green outfit, then so can I.

Gen Z yellow has proven to be one of the biggest color trends of 2018, surpassing even Millenial Pink. Now it has the queen's stamp of approval, so it's safe to say it's a color we'll be seeing for a while.

True to form, the queen donned her next colorful outfit in coordinating collarless jacket and floral-adorned sunhat.

Whether or not you're a fan of this intensely pink shade, you can't deny how amazing her feather-embellished hat is, right?
