King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden have embarked on a two-day state visit to Croatia. For their arrival today, Silvia chose a white calot style hat with back flower detail and net veil to match her suit. Perched on the back of her head, it had a decidedly retro vibe that I liked. I also liked the contrast with her dark hair and thought the whole look was very Queen-like.

I apologize, dear friends, for this late reivew. When I saw beautiful Queen Silvia today, I could only think of our dearly departed former first lady and queen of American fashion, Mrs. Kennedy. Magnificent! Alone, this veiled pillbox is simply beautiful. Paired, as it is on this great occasion, with a perfectly styled chestnut coiffe and a sublime day suit, it is perfection and utter bliss. This hat receives a 10/10.
I disagree with all you naysayers. I think this hat is very elegant on Queen Silvia. It’s beautiful.
There’s something not right about this hat but I can’t put my finger on it.
I think it makes her look older than she really is.
I think Silvias hat is very traditional and sophisticated. The tulle veil and flower leaves make it very soft.
I think this hat is old fashioned and not in a good, stylish retro kind of way. It seems really out of date. And the all white from head to too is way to bridal for me.
Very retro Jackie O. Good look for her.
I dunno… I kinda like it. The hat is pretty cool.
I totally hear what you are saying. To me she also looks like a mature bride. I lovely mature bride… but still a bride.
I agree. It’s a little mumsy.
That is got to be the prettiest queen hat I’ve seen in a long time. It’s so classy.
Yes. YES. It’s such a classy hat. It looks so nice with her dark curled hair.
