Princess Anne at the traditional Easter Sunday service at Windsor Castle today, April 8, wearing one of her
favourite outfits she's worn over and over again during the last years . Looks fresh and suits her as it's
such a typical Anne-outfit.

I always hesitate for a moment before I click on Annes fashion & style thread.
While this outfit is certainly not a disaster of the epic proportions Princess Anne had before, it does not impress me much either. The Princess Royal is a woman I certainly admire, but not for her fashion sense.

Another oldie from the back of the closet, eh? While I like the pattern of the coat, there's too much busyness going on with the collar, cuffs and pockets working against the checkered pattern. I'd have removed those pockets. But otherwise, she looks fine.

Her smile does much for her fashion, it is so seldom seen.

Yes, she does look like she's sharing a good joke with someone!

I am one of those who actually admire Princess Anne's sense of style. It is rarely, well, stylish, fashion forward or even coordinated, and sometimes verges on disaster - but it's very much Anne: she has her own ideas about fashion and isn't ready to compromise them for anything or anyone.

That doesn't mean I always like what she is wearing, including this latest ensemble; I have a sudden urge to play chess now - and I know who to blame!

Anne is definitely an iconoclast when it comes to fashion. I love the image of the chessboard, too!

The outfit made me nostalgic: it reminded me so much of the 80s

I Don’t Like Her Outfit at All , Very Very Old Fashion , Completely Wrong Choice

I love Anne, I really do. But that dress... Did she rummage her 80's cupboard again?

I wonder why Zara and Princess Anne's other relatives and friends cannot convince her to look into a mirror and realise she needs to update both her hair style and her wardrobe. It's rather sad that she can't see herself with a fresh look.

Well said, awcblue. I feel exactly the same as you. She could look so much younger and attractive if she just tried harder and took time to really look at herself. It really IS sad with all that she has to her advantage. It is obvious that she really doesn't hold that as a priority in her life..

Because that's Princess Anne we're talking about. She'll probably look sternly at whoever dares to do such thing and say, "You think I bloody care?"

I'm the first to acknowledge she has somewhat unusual style and if I had the chance, I'd probably "accidentally" burn all most of her cloths. But you know what? I'd really hate if she changed one bit. Anne is unique like Prince Philip: she doesn't feel the need to adapt to other people's wishes - and that's why I just love that woman.

Ah yes Princess Anne may be unique...but that does not mean she needs to stubbornly cling to a style that is forty-years old and stale. She has so many options for dressing with good taste, while keeping her uniqueness.
