On Wednesday, Princess Benedikte was in Hamburg, Germany to officially open the “Reisen Hamburg” international travel and leisure exhibition. For this event, she wore a new bumper hat with navy felt brim and plaid crown in the same dark blue, taupe and grey pattern as her jacket.
Designer: Mathilde Thoe Førster
Previously Worn: this hat is new
The hat is a great scale on Benedikte (the scale of the hat goes particularly well with the high collar on the jacket) and the colour palate makes for a very polished and professional looking ensemble. I wonder about the versatility of such matched hats- it’s clearly not the kind of thing that can be worn with another outfit. Is that good? Not good? As I’ve never managed a royal wardrobe, I don’t know! This matching approach to royal dressing is a more traditional one and I’m sure, has its benefits. I’m curious to hear what you all think about this new hat!
