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.
