I like the coat not with the pants the hat is nice. I think she was over dressed for the event.

Surely that can be worn without the trousers?! Or it can be altered as such. It would look lovely.

This is not a good look. A dress with the coat would have looked better.

From the one picture I saw, I thought she looked great. Wonderful full skirt on the coat, big hat to match. Nothing wrong with the trousers. The color looks pinky beige to me which suits her. Maybe it's funny looking from the front, she is a little short for all this, but I loved the image I saw.

The Countess of Wessex during a visit to the Chelsea Flower Show in London on May 20, 2013 wearing a dress with a strong print and a white jacket. The hair is very nice.

The overall look is fine. The dress is too busy to my taste.

The dress has too much going on for be to like it, but the shape suits Sophie. I like the white jacket paired with the outfit and her hairstyle was beautiful. I like that Sophie does not try to cover her freckles, it's very natural.

I think the plain white jacket kind of balances the dress out. If Sophie wore this dress by itself, it would have given me a headache, because the pattern is indeed a bit too busy. As previously stated, the shape suits Sophie.

I am tired of her jackets over dresses and her undone hair. She needs a good hairdresser.

I was just about to say that I thought Sophie had been looking very nice lately, as I think the outfit for Chelsea was great, and I don't mind the slim fitting skirts and jackets; indeed I think they are most appropriate and suit her. And I had adored the peacock arrangement she wore to church at Easter (even if it was probably more appropriate for Ascot). But then I saw the photo of her at Prince Nicolai's confirmation. Yikes! What was she thinking? That flared coat needed a slimline skirt; actually I think it needed about a yard of fabric to be removed from the flaring, but with a pencil skirt underneath it would have been OK. But not with the pants. I like her in pants, and think Kate should wear them, too - it would save her from having to worry about skirt-blowing-up mishaps - but that voluminous jacket with the pants and big hat just looked wrong on so many levels.

Though I might be tempting the fates, I will say that I am pleased she seems to has passed through the flying-saucer/cabbage/squashed birds-on-side-of-head days.

Slightly surprised by the hair comment as Sophie often wears her hair up in some elegant styles. Her recent visit to the Chelsea Flower show for example.

The dress is lovely. I like the colors and the print. The white jacket was a nice match as it didn't add anymore strong color to the outfit. The hair was really nice for a change. The only thing I which she went for was a different shade of handbag. The beige did not look good.

Yes, the beige handbag didn't even seem to match the nude heels. I don't really understand this fad for flesh-coloured shoes. It apparently makes the legs look longer, but I like shoes to match handbags and preferably also either match, or contrast with, the outfit.

I agree with you! I love the look.

You are right about that. I think I was referring to(in my headher pulled back hair with the white dress and black blazer.
