The sandals are wrong and the conservative outfit doesn't come natural to her, Sofia looks 'dressed up'. (...)

How should she have dressed then, according to you?

She looks really nice and I for one like the shoes though the weather may not have been good for them. I would have just liked to see the dress w/o the jacket if it indeed matched the skirts print, but I understand she wanted to coordinate with the other ladies.

Nice skirt but not fond of her jacket, its a bit boring. I think this would've looked better with a black jacket.

I really like her skirt here - and think she did well with the whole ensemble. Anyone can get caught out with the wrong shoes once in a while. Overall I think she is doing well with her public dress. I am coming to like her - there is a real sweetness about her.

At first I didn't like Sofia's skirt but after taking some closer looks at it, I like it a lot. It's quite elegant and suits her. On the other hand, I'm not a huge fan of her top. It doesn't go with the rest of her outfit.

Oddly, I like the top but not the skirt! It will be nice to see Sofia out and about more often over the next months to see what she wears.

I feel the same. I'm not sure why I don't like the lace skirt except maybe I'm really over lace dresses.

However, just as an aside, in the first photo Prince Carl Philip was handing her down from a carriage. I wonder if that was her first time?

She looked awful during her latest appearance, with the shorts, transparent top and visible black bra, the split ends of her hair etc. Who would step out of her door looking like this?

I have to agree... her face was not at her best

Split ends? She wore a white top underneath, so it was nicely covered up. And more people than you would think would step out of her door looking like this... just take a look at a general busy street .
I find women who wear T-shirts that reveal one shoulder much more so to say.

That may be so, but this was a private occasion so she could be casual.

If split ends disqualified one from royal marriage, any number of monarchies would be composed of very different people.

Yes, but this thread is about fashion and style so we have to talk about it... So I don't have to justify every single comment about Sofia!:-). I just said that to me her face looked quite bad... About the clothing: it seems alright

The first thing: true .
The second thing: I didn't ask for a justification, nor was my statement meant to get one . I just gave my point of view , more based actually to the poster above you. She didn't look as poised like she did at the engagement or Victoria's birthday, no, but I suppose it also came because it has been swelteringly hot this past week in Western Europe.
The third thing: fair enough .

I try to be as objective as I can because in this thread we only talk about fashion...

That's true and being objective is a good quality, but while everyone is entitled to own opinion I think it's a bit unfair to rip Sofia apart for wearing what she did at the tennis match when it's really a very basic summer attire for young women today.
Perhaps it's the angle from where one looks at it when talking about fashion in general .

I think it depends on every person's view... I must admit that a white t-shirts with a black bra doesn't make a fine look... For the rest I think she dressed quite fine...

Here is a photo of the outfit in question that Sofia wore to a tennis match in Bastad, Sweden on July 20:

Side view

From what I can see, Sofia looks fine and appropriate for the event. (Having said that, I haven't seen any close ups of her outfit to be able to judge it fully.) Most of the other guests were wearing similar style clothing, from what I can see.

Black bra and white t-shirt....tacky and regardless of who is wearing it, any royal, any so called star, any woman on this earth...it is tacky and trashy.
And I don't care if it was private or public/ when person, male or female goes out in public or to a private event you should *always* dress with care, after all, appearances are the very first thing a person sees, not what you say or think, it's all about how you LooK. Appearance do count! This should be learned at the knees of your mother/grandmother.
