Words by Ellie McKenna

When you think of trendsetting royals, admittedly, you might not immediately think of King Charles III. However, even Charles himself acknowledged his accidental status as a fashion icon at the launch party of London Collections: Men fashion week at St James’s Palace in 2012. “I have lurched from being the best-dressed man to being the worst-dressed man,” he said. “Meanwhile, I have gone on — like a stopped clock — and my time comes around every 25 years.”

Over the years, he has provided us with many iconic looks leaving us no choice but to find you Charles-inspired Spring looks. Although you may think this is just for men, you are mistaken – anyone can pull these off!
