This Saturday we in the Netherlands get to celebrate the birthday of our monarch, King Willem Alexander! The day marked as a national holiday is celebrated by the entire country. For the non-dutch amongst you readers, Kingsday is the day where the entire country goes outside to celebrate the birthday of the Dutch king. This is done through various activities which are usually enjoyed outdoors. Popular activities amongst the locals are to enjoy a boat ride, go to the local pub, partake in activities at local market fairs, party at a festival or to just walk through the busy city streets. All of these activities are paired with having several drinks throughout the entire day.
Another must-do which comes along with celebrating Kingsday is that you have to wear Orange, the Dutch national colour. While we at FRESHCOTTON can't wait for the celebrations to start, we thought it would be useful to help you out with your outfit for the special occasion. Combining orange with the rest of your outfit can be tricky. That is why we created this Kingsday Editorial so that you will know what to wear this coming Saturday!
