There is no shortage of holiday style inspiration among the princesses and queens of Europe and the Middle East, from glamorous Princess Mary to fashion-savvy Queen Rania to elegant Kate.
Whether your budget is large or small, everyone can take note of the key trends that shine through among this particular group of beauties: Metallics, sequins, rich redd, winter white, luxe lace, velvet and fur.
And as these chic ladies illustrate, you don't have to show a lot of skin to look fabulous and festive.
In 2014, newly minted Queen Letizia was definitely the royal to watch - the fashion-forward monarch stepped out in a number of festive red ensembles - including one to-die-for textured dress - and winter-white coats characteristic of the demure yet style savvy queen.
Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden also offered a holiday idea in the form of one particularly beautiful "mullet"-style dress in nude lace.
And, of course, the Duchess of Cambridge was a wealth of inspiration in silver, salmon and nude.
