Princess Eugenie Embraces Somber Dressing Traditions in Pumps, Tights & Pleated Skirt for Floral Tribute in Queen Elizabeth’s Memory

Princess Eugenie arrived at Balmoral Castle to look at flowers and messages from mourners for the recently deceased Queen Elizabeth II on Sept. 10 in Aberdeen, Scotland.

The Princess swapped a traditional pantsuit for a skirt. She appeared in a black Reiss blazer that had wide lapels and pleated at the back. The British brand’s garment also had metallic gold buttons on the bodice and on the cuffs.

The royal wore the jacket with a black satin shirt and knee-length pleated skirt. She simply accessorized with small hoop earrings and a thin necklace. She swept some of the hair to the side and pinned it back.

The princess completed her look with sheer tights and a pair of black pointed-toe pumps. The silhouette had elongated triangular pointed-toe and sat atop a 4-inch stiletto heel. Dark pointed pumps remain as a versatile and timeless shoe style for somber occasions due to durable construction.
