Today The Countess of Wessex attended church with The Queen at Sandringham, joined by her family. We saw familiar pieces on Sophie for the private visit, heading in the car to St Mary Magdalene’s church just down the road from Sandringham House.
She chose her Armani Collezioni oversized collar coat, which is at least six years old now. The loose fitting piece features three large mother of pearl buttons, a knee-length hem and a cowl-like collar sweeping around the neck and shoulders.
The Countess teamed the look with brown suede ankle boots, with a chunky heel and small platform from LK Bennett. We have seen these previously; remind yourself here. They are a number of years old now, and we do not know exactly which piece they are. These make a nice match.
From these limited pictures, it appears Sophie is wearing a purple (or maybe burgundy) top, which we think is a piece seen previously on the Countess with a seam down the sleeve, and bow detailing at the cuffs. More pics from the previous event can be seen here, and another previous wear below (first picture). You can try this cute ruffle cuff piece to match the look.

The hat is a repeat from Hicks and Brown, their ‘Suffolk Fedora’ in camel with pheasant wrap. It is still available here, costing £95. A great more informal piece for the country.
Again we saw Sophie’s tree of life earrings, which still remain unidentified. Let us know if you recognise them!
It looks like the Countess had a bag in her lap – a metallic barrel clutch? – but this photo just about gives us a colour and no other details. Brown leather gloves finished off the look.
We didn’t like the loose fitting shapes the Countess opted for in this look, nor the combination of five different colours. We think a more formal hat and less clunky shoes would have worked better, and offset the loose silhouette. What are your thoughts?
