Need a party outfit? The Countess of Wessex's silver pleated skirt is at the top of our wish list

Royally-approved metallics!

The Countess of Wessex is looking draw-droppingly gorgeous on the royal tour of France with Prince Edward, and her wardrobe is a never-ending display of incredible pieces that we just can't get enough of! The royal stepped out at the Le Cercle de L'Union Interaillee - which is a private club - at the hotel Perrinet de Jars. Sophie, 53, wore a simple black button-down top, and accessorised it with a fabulous metallic-pleated skirt in a shimmering silver. The skirt is from her go-to favourite designer - Emilia Wickstead - and retails at £1015 from Net-a-Porter. We love the glistening fabric, which is made from luxurious lurex, and swished as it caught the light. The royal added black court shoes, subtle jewellery and carried a black clutch bag. 

Sophie looked magnificent in metallics

The mother-of-two also wore Emilia Wickstead the day before, during a private tour of the Palace of Versailles. Her blush pink, snakeskin outfit consisted of a silk top and pleated skirt from the brand's pre AW18 Collection and she teamed it with a cream longline cardigan and funky brown ankle boots by Prada.

The mother-of-two wore her trademark blonde hair slicked back in a casual ponytail and accessorised with delicate drop earrings and her Chanel watch. After taking in all the breathtaking place had to offer, Sophie headed to INSEP - a training centre for athletes on the outskirts of Paris.The 53-year-old took a lesson in archery during the visit - yet still looked remarkably chic in the process, wearing a pair of black tailored trousers,a  ruffle top and a full-length, navy blue cashmere coat.
