It’s Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot! The Countess of Wessex continued her streak of repeating hats at this year’s event, bringing back the hat she wore to the Cambridge’s wedding in April 2011.With a rose-beige straw beret percher base, the hat is trimmed with silk roses, feathers and raw edge gold veil.
The hat is a lovely scale on Sophie with perfectly balanced trim. Neutral hued hats seem to sink or swim… but this one soars thanks to its pairing today with this deep teal shirtwaist dress. The dress’ beige collar piping and gold embroidered palm trees on the skirt link beautifully with the hat, the two pieces elevating the other to create a stellar look for Sophie.
