The Countess of Wessex looked resplendent as she joined other members of the Royal Family and toured the Chelsea Flower Show displays on Monday, in a white Zimmermann frock.
Sophie wore the Zimmermann ‘Whitewave Veil Dress’, retailing for £995. Quite a casual choice from Sophie, though it was not a formal royal engagement. The floaty dress is appropriate for the occasion of a sunny day at the Chelsea Flower Show, though Zimmermann is essentially a beach/resort wear label.
The ultra feminine style dress is made from sheer silk with panels of vertical lace. A bateau neckline, kimono style sleeves and light skirt with flounce hem that can be cinched in at the waist with a self tie belt. The dress is made from sheer silk and has a slip underneath. The perfect dress for the coming summer months. Please note there are several different names for this dress and prices across different online retailers. These include ‘Whitewave Veill’, ‘Breeze Veil Dress’, ‘Lace Midi Dress’, and retail for between and £995 and £1,271. The dress is also available in a pale mint and a shorter white version. You can purchase Sophie’s dress here and here.
Sophie carried her Sophie Habsburg ‘Amber Clutch’ in beige, retailing for £376. We think that this is definitely one of Sophie’s favourite staple clutches, she carries it with her on engagements at least once a week. You can purchase this clutch here.
Sophie wore a Ginavito Rossi ‘Gianvito Suede 85’ pumps in pink to the flower show, retailing for £508. A pretty pair of pale pink pointed toe closed court heels with an 85mm heel height. Sophie seems to be expanding her wardrobe of neutral coloured court heels in a mid range heel height. She owns pairs by numerous different designers. You can purchase these heels here.

The Countess accessorised with some new jewellery a long drop necklace that featured a large teardrop pearl pendant on a double bale hoop from a white gold chain. The pearl appears not to be the usual lustrous white you typically associate with pearls but a slightly darker grey, possible a South China Sea Pearl? Though this could also be the light in the photo.
