Oh dear, Sofia's trousers are somewhat awful; for lack of a better word. I often like what she wears but this time she's got it a little wrong. The outfit seems mismatched as her blouse and jacket are nice and go together, whereas her trousers are baggy and look as if they were the first thing she saw when she opened her wardrobe and just put them on in a rush.

Awful from top to bottom. The proportions are way off. And that center part in her hair is just a no-no. She tries but somehow doesn't quite make it. :(

Not a great outfit but the hairstyle is the worst part of it,the duchess looked liked she was going to hospital rather than an official event!

Right? Its like she has decided in order to to expunge her dodgey past, she needs to either be dressed EXACTLY as her sisters in law or in granny frumpy land.

I think she looked a bit sloppy, the pieces are nice but together they somehow didn't work. Maybe if her blouse was tucked in, she would've looked better and hair pulled in a bun or in a ponytail. It seemed some much was going on with the wide pants, the open hair and the neck tie.

She should wear what her SIL wore yesterday.

I don't know, but maybe she has been advised to change her look by the court staff. Her style has changed a bit dramatically.

Whoever is advising her for styling needs to be replaced.

I think she has definately been told to dress more appropriately. But there is a place between her natural inclination to the short skirts/super tight clothes etc which would be appropriate to go clubbing, and being dressed as CP's grandmother.

In public eye, whatever wear is basically a costume. Context is all. Only decision is style, and demands of the camera (a very fickle lover, if ever there was one). JMO.

Princess Sofia with Prince Carl Philip opened the new Fryshusets department in Husby, Sotckholm.

I think this is one of Sofia's better looks. A nice outfit, a color that looks so good on her IMO. The hair style was nice and so was her makeup. She should keep this kind of look up.

She looks great. Green suits her very much and I really like the arm part of the dress. I also very much liked her hair. She should wear her hair like this more often. It's a nice change from the constant middle parting (which I don't dislike, just getting bored of after seeing it constantly).

Use your chance, Sofia. You're doing a fine job so far.

You took the words right out of my mouth! Exactly what I was thinking.

Not sure I love the sleeves but that said she looks great.

The color is fantastic on her. And the whole look fits

And her hair in fantastic. She needs to wear it like this more often.

All in all I think one of her best looks. Certainly in a long time at least.

Sofia has selected to wear pleated sleeve jumper by COS (69€) and I'd say it suits her really well. Its bottle green color goes well with her dark hair, contrast-colored edge give nice contrast. Lovely updo and makeup. So I'd say one of her best appearances.

Yes, one of the better looks, especially with the hair. Some of the photos show that the green top didn't photograph well with flashlight, the bra is very visible. Not liking the granny pumps either.

In general I think Sofia is a frumpy dresser, at times not better than Steph of Lux (!), with matronly and ill-fitting clothes. As if she wanted to get rid of her sexy image by dressing like an old lady.
