The Earl and Countess of Wessex completed a five day visit to Sri Lanka yesterday. On Saturday, they officially represented Queen Elizabeth II at celebrations marking the Asian nation’s 70th Independence Day. For this event, Sophie repeated a statement saucer hat with cream straw button base and striped crin brim (with raised pleats at the top of the design) trimmed with grey and cream crin curls and black feathers.
This hat has always been one I’ve described as sophisticated and while I wouldn’t use the same description for Sophie’s daisy printed dress, the two pair fairly well together. I prefer this hat paired with the sleek cream and navy striped silk coat Sophie paired with it in the past but understand the tropical climate required a lighter weight frock. What do you think of this hat’s third outing on Saturday?
