Queen Elizabeth II's Style: So Much More Than Matchy-Matchy

Whatever the reason—our binge-watching of The Crown, perhaps, or the royal wedding on the horizon—we can't stop thinking about Queen Elizabeth II's style and how it's so much more than you might imagine at first. Sure, we spend a great deal of time decoding the wardrobes of Kate Middleton (and will undoubtedly give Meghan Markle the same amount of attention), but our monarch's magnificent fashion collection will always fascinate us. Iris Apfel may often take the crown as the coolest nonagenarian in town, but we reckon she's got some stiff competition from Her Majesty the Queen.

Go through the gallery to see some of Elizabeth's best style moments of all time.
