Queen Rania of Jordan could choose to lead the easy life if she wanted to—we're sure being married to the King of Jordan, Abdullah bin al-Hussein has its perks—but that clearly won't do for the 46-year-old queen consort. On her Instagram bio, she calls herself "a mum and a wife with a really cool day job," a fitting description for this driven career woman.
Queen Rania is passionate about education, and she spearheads several organizations to make learning accessible to the youth in her country. She's also an advocate for quality education for children around the world, and has even penned several books for kids.
Given her status as a girl boss to look up to, Queen Rania certainly dresses the part. It's not just her work ethic that's inspiring—her elegant OOTDs are, too! Here are just some of our favorites:
Black and white are always appropriate, more so when worn with timeless stripes.
They're instantly slimming and lengthening, too!
Queen Rania also has a soft spot for pink, which she often pairs with darker hues.
Like us, she's all about that millennial pink life. ;)
Just as long as you combine it with impeccable tailoring (at least for the office).
She always looks sophisticated, whether casual in an embroidered maxi dress...
... or buttoned up in a striped collared midi.
Dressing for the office can be a struggle—especially when you have a dress code to adhere to—but Queen Rania is proof it can be done stylishly.
We love how she adds interest to covered-up clothing with intricate prints.
Or romantic folds of fabric!
Don't forget unconvential details, like lace-up panels, to keep things interesting.
Or how about a fringed hemline to perk up a black pencil skirt?
Maybe a cutout shoulder for that subtlest flash of skin?
A trumpet silhouette plus a busy print plus an asymmetrical hemline somehow works.
Trousers make an impact, too, from slim shapes...
... to wide-legged culottes.
And when all else fails, try a pop of color and some statement heels.
