Yesterday, The Countess of Wessex attended a service at Westminster Abbey, to mark All Souls’ Day – a Christian celebration of remembrance for those who we have lost in the last year. Sophie opted for navy, ahead of lockdown returning in the UK.
Sophie wore a new navy dress from Loewe. This was the ‘wrap front midi dress’ selling for £1450 here. The dress has peaked lapels and a loose-fit bodice that wraps and fastens on the left waist and hip with tan leather straps that trail down the the midi-length hem. It is made of wool.
This is a decent match at almost 10% of the cost of Sophie’s.
The boots looked familiar, but we haven’t nailed down their ID. With a stacked black block heel, elasticated panels and a finger loop to the rear, the boots are a classic style. We saw similar back in January 2019, on a visit to a carehome; we are unsure if they are a different pair or the same ones as they looked black… We thought they were Ralph Lauren or Prada, but still nothing exact to match.
They do however appear to be well-worn – note the scuffs on the toe and the creasing to the front of the boot, so probably a few seasons past at least. More when we have it!
Try these to copy the look.
She carried her navy snakeskin Beauchamp ‘Hutchinson’ clutch, with its distinctive studded sides and twist lock.
Jewellery-wise the Countess wore her Hermes ‘Constance’ handbag charm necklace, and two Halcyon Days ‘Maya’ torque bangles, the ivory and emerald versions. They are still available here at £115, which is an increase from their original £95 RRP. The Duchess of Cambridge owns two of these, as well (ivory and aquamarine).
The Countess opted for a pale blue floral mask, without elastic. Nothing on this yet, but I am sure it will be higher end!
