That's a difficult look to pull off with the combination of the unusual shape of the skirt and the bold print. Full marks for trying.

I'm not a fan of this outfit, although the colours and floral pattern is nice and suits Sophie. I agree that the shape of the skirt is a little unusual!

I don't usually use this word to describe Sophie, but I think she looks cute in this outfit.

I LOVE this skirt on this dress. The construction is amazing, and the print and bustling-type extra fabric really evoke a wonderful retro sense - almost Edwardian.

I like the colour of the skirt, but I'm not sure about the shape. However it shows that Sophie has confidence in herself to try such a different look.

Did not like this skirt at all. The print nor the style of it.

The outfit that Sophie chose for the Chelsea Flower Show is not to my taste. The shape and the print are too overwhelming.

The Countess of Wessex visited the Defence Medical Welfare Service Headquarters in Andover, Hampshire on May 25 in a repeated black blazer and an Oscar de la Renta skirt:

Classic blazer, and nice basic print skirt Good look on her and one that is nice to see recycled. I love that Sophie like Letizia has these pieces that can easily be reused in different ways. Better IMO than coat dresses that scream 'recycled' as they are so particular.

I love the blazer and skirt look on Sophie. Very elegant and simple.

Very mother of the bride...

Thus not a good dress. She's done better.

The draping on the bodice is spectacular. It's not my fav color on the Countess, but the accessories are a nice addition. It is a new bracelet and the theme of the dinner is diamonds are forever...
They (Anna and co.) are working on an ID. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CkiV8NnXEAAzqn5.jpg

Sophie looks, as always, lovely and appropriate, in the gray dress.

An elegant and lovely gown.
