Princess Anne repeated an ivory straw teardrop disc hat with upturn on the rounded back of the design. It is trimmed with looped straw bows, silk flowers and large bows of net veil which give a light and airy feel to the design that is well suited to a day at the races.
What worked today was the pairing of this hat with Anne’s jade silk jacquard dress. The dress is a statement (and she looks killer in it!) and letting it shine against cream accessories was a great call. Yes, the hat isn’t terribly exciting and yes, the dress is probably originally from the 1980s but together, they create a great look for the Princess Royal.
The Earl of Snowdon also attended the races today in a black silk top hat.
Do you love this look on Princess Anne as much as I do?!
