"You paint pictures with them"... Finally someone came up with The perfect description of the way Baroness of Books words her posts! Beautifully said, Daria.

I don't mind the navy dress too much, it looks like the kind of thing that's really comfortable and can just be thrown on without too much thought.

I do not like the grey coat, though. Just so forgettable. I know Camilla isn't particularly interested in fashion - she actually reminds me of the Queen that way - but she'd done so well this tour so far.

The Duchess of Cornwall attended the Sunday Service at St Albans Anglican Church in Copenhagen
on March 25, 2012, wearing a nice white coat and her well-known dress with dots.

I like the coat and the dress, but not the hat or the boots.
I'd rather prefer a black and white look, than a black, white and brown one.

Still, Camilla looks quite nice.

I think this outfit is very elegant, love it from hat to boots. This and the one of the first day in Norway are probably her best outfits so far on this tour. And I think she generally dressed well for a woman of her age and figure - during daytime. The evening outfits didn't thrill me.

The coat could actually appear almost stylish if it wasn't worn with this over-repeated large-dotted dress which begs for retirement.
Scrunched up hat and boots neither compliment the outfit nor do they look nice at this time of the year.

Unfortunately, the button line as well as the execution of the inserts of the coat do not look very well made - this is not exactly high quality tailoring:

Polka dots + Paddington = Blaaah
But her smile and attitude is saving this mega repeated conbination.

Too many polka dots on both the dress and the coat; a very busy look. I've seen her wear this combination before and I've always disliked it. I like the coat very much, but it would have looked better with a solid dress, so the detailing would have stood out on its own. The Paddington hat and the boots also give this a heavy look.

I think Camilla has been caught out at how quickly spring has sprung. It is unseasonably warm and dry in Europe at the moment. The Paddington hat would be appropriate on a colder day, but it's just too warm for fur at the moment.

The coat is quite nice for her but simply overdone it with the printed dress and scarf. The coat has so much pretty detailing going on which would've looked quite elegant with everything else being plain and she could've gotten away with it being slightly colored.

Actually, it is not that warm in DK at the moment. So the hat is perfect

I like the coat, but not with the dress, or the hat or the boots. Something needs to be in a solid color. There are too many dots. Perhaps if she kept the look in black and white colors (the dress being a solid black), it would have been a wonderful combination. Don't care for the hat at all.

The Duchess of Cornwall in Copenhagen today, March 26, looking wonderful in a deep lilac/purple
coat and hat, also in a nice contrast to Crown Princess Mary's white outfit:

Easily her best outfit of the tour so far.
Perhaps too much of a good thing regarding the fringe detailing - do fringes really make sense on the crown of a hat? - but great color and most of all much better tailoring than usually seen on her.

I absolutely love this outfit on Camilla; purple is her colour.
She has worn this exact same ensemble in Norway, gorgeous pearl choker and earrings included.
