It's no secret that even the Netherlands has produced a few eye-catching style stars in the past, ranging from supermodels to A-list celebrities.

All About Comfort

First thing's first, you should know that Dutch style is all about comfort. As the saying goes, 'when you look good, you feel good!' But the most stylish in the Netherlands have it the other way. For them, in order to look good, you have to feel good! You don't have to sacrifice your comfort for style, both can go hand-in-hand in a chic and cool way. That's why, above all else, Dutch style is defined by comfort. Think minimal basics that look timeless and feel great. Or oversized silhouettes that don't restrict the body in any way!

Don't Be Afraid to Go Masculine

Make no mistake, however, that just because the Dutch value comfort in style, that doesn't mean they're averse to tailoring and the like. In fact, there's one Dutch-blooded style icon who popularized a femininely boyish look back in the day: Audrey Hepburn. Because she has such a strong connection to Paris, many think that her iconic aesthetic is specifically French. And while the screen legend has influenced French style, it has also made its mark on the way the Dutch dress too. Ladies, don't be afraid to rock a suit if you want to! For the Dutch, you'll look as beautiful and sexy as always!

Anything Neutral

When it comes to colors, the Dutch really only focus on two tones. The first is all about the neutrals. From camel to beige to nude, the most stylish in the Netherlands love sporting these classic hues. It helps that they're such versatile colors. They look good on any garment, any style, any silhouette, and any look. Be it a sharp suit for work or a floor-length dress for an evening gala, neutral tones reign supreme in the Netherlands. And imagine how much you'll stand out spring such gentle colors against the brightly-hued tulips all over the country?

Pop with Orange

The other color the Dutch love is orange! And it's not only because the bright hue helps them stand out! The color orange actually holds significance in the Netherlands. It was taken after William of Orange, the historic Dutch monarch who led the country's revolution against Spanish rule back in the 16th and 17th centuries. Today, orange reigns supreme in the Netherlands, most especially during King's Day, one of the country's most important national holidays. On this day, most people across the country sport the tangerine color, all while celebrating the Dutch royal family, the House of Orange-Nassau.
