The Countess of Wessex attended a service at Westminster Abbey this morning in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the National Health Service.
For this event, she repeated a white straw, oval-shaped saucer hat with sharp sidesweep, lavishly trimmed with white, cream and ecru feathers placed on both sides of the raised brim.
Sophie’s side chignon shows the hat to absolute perfection. For a smaller-scale piece in neutral colours, this design packs considerable visual punch and showed up well against the vibrant green dress. I have some proportion quibbles about the two pieces together- I think the open neckline and longer length of the dress works better with a wider brimmed hat (like the natural straw saucer she wore with it to Ascot last year).
