13 royal style moments to ring in awards season from home

The phrase “all dressed up and nowhere to go” couldn't be more fitting to describe our attire in 2020. In a year devoid of in-person get-togethers and travelling, it’s easy to succumb to the sweatsuit way of life. But just because our calendars aren’t brimming with our usual circuit of fancy fêtes, doesn't mean we can’t get dressed up. With the Golden Globes fast approaching, the Grammys next, and leading up to the big Oscars night, why not use awards season as an excuse to get glam from the comfort of your own abode?

Because regardless of our current global circumstances, the way we dress can be an instant mood-booster. And if your brain needs a little refresher and some much-needed inspiration, nobody does style and grace better than the royals.

The Duchess of Cambridge embodies red-carpet glam in this bedazzled ankle grazing number at Buckingham Palace. Opting to keep her ensemble monochromatic, she added a sultry pair of red heels to complete the look.

Swap your matching sweatsuit for a matching pant and blazer moment much like Lady Kitty Spencer, whose look is made all the more elevated with a tailored silhouette.

Glam Oscar-worthy looks don't have to involve multiple pieces. Case in point: Queen Letizia of Spain stuns in a midi leather dress that’s cinched at the waist to look instantly gala ready yet entirely cool.

Meghan Markle looks striking in a bright cerulean dress with cap sleeves as she pops by the Endeavour Fund Awards at Mansion House.

For a casual Golden Globes look, a printed dress is equally as stunning as it is cozy from behind a computer screen. Lady Amelia Windsor looks sweet as pie in a cherry patterned maxi-dress with tons of shimmery details including hoops, layered gold bracelets and bold rings.

A cheery red duster and mini black shift dress is a no-fail combo to nail awards season dressing. Princess Beatrice pairs her look with a timeless clutch, chunky headband and gorgeous heels to feel lounge-y yet special.

Statement sleeves are a reliable fashion staple to bop around the home singing along to Grammy nominee Harry Styles tune or two—even for a Dutch monarch. Queen Maxima of the Netherlands is snapped wearing the trend with her hair loosely pulled back and her ever endearing, winning smile.

While visiting the Henry Fawcett Children's Centre brunette beauty Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, looked more like a polished princess in a stunning lavender bow blouse, billowing trousers and pretty lilac purse.

Seasonally fitting, Sophie, Countess of Wessex attends the "Sulphur and White" premiere at the Curzon Mayfair in an emerald satin turtleneck dress that would totally turn heads for any at-home Zoom celebration!

Elegant would be an understatement to describe Queen Letizia of Spain in this printed satin dress with a longer hemline, perfect for winter celebrations.

Looking cute and casual the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle keeps it monochromatic in head-to-toe shades of brown as she’s seen leaving Canada House in London.

The awards season circuit is the perfect time to rethink how to style your little black dress and Princess Sofia of Sweden lets her accessories take centre stage. Opting to pair her tuxedo-like dress with eye-catching silver cherry blossom earrings and a killer clutch.

For a preppy look, the Duchess of Cambridge dons a charming, shalini floral-print silk dress which would be fitting for any red carpet viewing from the comfort of your living room.
