It's easy to see why the Countess of Wessex is widely regarded as one of the best-dressed royals ever - especially if her Ascot outfits are anything to go by. On day three of the famous races, Sophie stunned in a beautiful pleated shirt-style dress in a chic shade of dove grey by Suzannah. The pleated skirt gave the frock a contemporary edge and the button-style blouse skimmed her shape – we are particularly loving the edgy mandarin collar, too. She added velvet high heel shoes and a stylish snakeskin clutch. And who really could miss her phenomenal hat? Her feather-trimmed blush pink design certainly packed a punch with its statement feel and was designed by Jane Taylor. Suzannah is a label loved by the royal – she even wore a design from the brand at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in May.
Sophie stunned in Suzannah
Sophie accompanied her husband, Prince Edward, who also looked impeccably suave in a three-piece suit and a top hat which he teamed up with his favourite Ascot accessory – his jockey-themed tie.
The mother-of-two is definitely on to a winning streak in the style stakes – on day two she stunned in a jumpsuit! The one-piece was introduced as part of the Ascot dress code last year and it has been a popular style ever since. An Ascot representative explained: "The inclusion of jumpsuits as part of the Royal Enclosure dress code recognises our customers' fashion-forward taste and reflects our awareness of seasonal trends."
Sophie embraced the style in an aqua blue jumpsuit by one of her favourite designers, Emilia Wickstead, and looked totally fabulous – we particularly loved the bold black ribbon detail on the sleeves. The design is priced at £1,992 and available online now should you wish to invest. Her matching hat in the same periwinkle blue ensured she stood out from the crowd as she enjoyed a light flutter.
