Don't like this dress on her. I think she would've looked better in the blue dress of the lady's she was standing next to rather than the one she's wearing. It's just not exciting enough for me and looks a bit frumpy.

The hair is ok, but she has over used this hairstyle a lot so I'd like to see her do something different.

The gown and hairstyle are just okay IMO. Sofia is a pretty girl but this gown does nothing for her.

I don't know why but her evening wear is just underwhelming to me. Her daytime outfits are a little better but not much. Maybe its just me but I feel her style was better before she got engaged. I know it might be a while to get her style groove hopefully it will kick in on the big day.'

Of course, she might think she has a style groove down.

This blue gown looks like an early 80's replica, something Beatrix might have worn. I don't mind it at all and I don't think Sofia looks too bad in it - having a chignon would have set the whole look off nicely.

The colour of the dress is beautiful and the style is very interesting. But what spoils it for me is Sofia's version of a "go to" hairstyle. Just like Victoria's "go to" hairstyle is a tightly slicked back bun, Sofia's is parted on the right and slicked down hard and pulled back into Victoria's first preferred "go to" hairstyle . . . a low ponytail.

The side view in the photo below is a better view of that, ah, ponytail. But her hair is a lot finer than even Victoria's, and it needs loft, air, fluff, or something to give it some definition!

I imagine they have just stepped out of a car or something, because the outfit looks rather untidy in that picture, with the zip undone and the creases. The colour is rather nice.

This color is nice on her but the dress looks ill fitting and wrinkly. I wish she would do something more with her hair too.

I'm the kind of person who thinks that coats should be longer than the dress underneath

That said, the coat itself is pretty and Sofia looks good with that hairstyle.

It is a nice coat, it is from Tiger of Sweden and Sofia had it in December at a Christmas concert. But I too think that the dress is a little too long with that coat. It looked better in December.

I agree, the December look was far nicer but perhaps it is just that she is dressed with quite a long dress and Madeleine, standing right beside her, has both a short dress and coat.

Just as a note, I don't particularly like the really slicked down hairstyle she seems to be sporting most of the time. Her hair looked better back around the time her engagement was announced.

I agree with you! This was a major faux pas, but she will learn eventually.
Wrong combination aside, I do like the coat per se.

No, an example of a major faux pas would be picking one's nose or teeth at a State banquet.

The hemline thing was minor, and you are right...she will catch on.

Coat and dress both nice but agree the coat is too short.

I love the colour of the coat but I'm not a fan of the collar and in general it comes across as a bit clunky for me. From what I can see, her dress is nice and her shoes work well with the outfit.

Sofia's style reminds me very much of Victoria's style, I'm not saying Sofia is copying Victoria, just that their styles are rather similar (IMO).

Maybe it's because I live in a climate that is so mild that coats like that are not usually parts of one's wardrobe so I don't have a feeling for any rules of relative length of coat and skirt, but the fact the coat is shorter than the skirt doesn't bother me. In fact I think Sofia looks much better than Madeleine. Sofia's skirt is a far more flattering length.

The coat looks terrible on her. It does nothing for her and overpowers her with the stark color, straight lines and giant collar. Besides the fact that it is way too short for the dress she is wearing. She needs softer lines and colors like madeleine has. And yes the hairdo is also too severe.
She is actually a very small person, not only short, but very fine boned, kind of like princess marie. It is not easy to wear just anything if you are like that.
