The quality of the fabric Sophie and her designers chose is really outstanding and is really only seen when the photos are quite close I do love to see all of her outfits now in this way and marvel at her ongoing ability to remain glamorous yet professional. I to loved the last suit it was exactly what I am talking about.

Sophie looks well put together in this outfit including her pretty shoes. That 3rd pic is a nice photo of her.

I think Sophie's style has evolved very well. She is usually well turned out in a smart, elegant outfit, often with a contemperory twist, possibly through her hat.

I agree she always looks so well put together. Does Sophie have a personal stylist?

I doubt if she has a personal stylist, but she may be working with some personal shoppers.

I think you are correct muriel there was an article in Majesty magazine about 2 years ago which sugested exactly that so she is very careful regarding her spending.

I don't think Sophie could afford a personal stylist.

That's probably true.
Muriel what is a personal shopper? Is it similar to a personal stylist?

A personal shopper typically works for a larger store (say, Selfridges) and helps its "premium" customers identify potential items of clothing or homewares that may be suitable. They then share this selection with the customer who makes the final choice. There is usually no extra charge for the service.

Some of these personal shoppers work independently, and receive their financial compensation from the people they source the items of clothing from. My sense is that Sophie could be working with somebody independent.

I think she could afford one.

The outfit is nice, simple but elegant.

In the Majesty article about her clothing the designer, who is in Sloane Square and who's name escapes me said she actually looks for all the extras Sophie needs Tshirts etc and it is probably not as busy a job as working for a CP as Sophie does an amazing job of recycling and does try to remain a low profile royal. I wish I could remember the woman's name though.

I'm not so sure, with all the reports we hear about them struggling financially. It sounds like they don't receive a large stipend from the Queen. I tend to agree with Muriel that she may utilize a personal shopper. Much more economical.

Is it possible that the Queen allows Sophie to use her wardrobe person (stylist) since Sophie doesn't need too many outfits. Sophie's suite seem so well tailored. Or perhaps the Queen needs too many outfits herself to share her stylist?

^^ I suppose it is possible. Perhaps she allows Sophie to utilize her stylist on important occasions when she wears gowns as they seem to be custom made for her.

Sophie has a nice overall style, mostly conservative but always appropriate.
Although I don't always like her choice of hats.

I liked the red coat and the hat. Again, beautiful and discreet jewels. Very elegant IMO.

It looks like a nice, elegant outfit. A shame we can't see it better, particularly her hat.
