HM Queen Rania of Jordan‘s formal style sense is once again having its moment in the spotlight, courtesy of a statement skirt. The royal made her first public appointment since the death of her father by visiting Beit Khairat Souf in Jerash on Tuesday, where she connected with representatives and beneficiaries of Alnoor Almouben Association, a women-led organization that runs the heritage site.

For the meeting, Queen Rania chose a summer-appropriate and modest ensemble, with its highlight being a denim midi skirt by Gabriela Hearst. Featuring a flared hem with thin white stitching around it, the wardrobe staple was paired with another classic piece: a white shirt. The collared blouse was tucked into the skirt and came with embroidered balloon sleeves, lending her look a breezy yet polished vibe. To complete the outfit, Queen Rania wore a pair of black pointed-toe pumps by Dior. While the royal often wears her hair down in waves or in a half-up-half-down style, she summer-proofed her tresses this time with a textured ponytail and a lock of hair covering the tie. Her makeup too was kept minimal as it was worn under a face mask matching her skirt for the most part.

Queen Rania is clearly a fan of the fail-safe white shirt and denim, having worn the combination on multiple outings. Just earlier this year, the royal had iftar at an orphanage wearing the timeless pieces, while jeans—both skinny and flared—often make an appearance in her public wardrobe, proving they are essentials she swears by. Queen Rania is not the only royal to have embraced denim for summer. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex too wore a denim shirt and shorts to Prince Harry’s polo match at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club.
