  1. This is really a nice dress the stripes a little busy this little cardigan does nothing for her,maybe a short blazer in one of the color stripes would have done better but she looks good anyway.

  2. The dress isn’t terrible...but it is horrendous with that cardigan.

  3. Oh dear... the red cardigan does not seem to go with the dress.

  4. Would love to see Sophie in this dress with (at most) a lovely scarf or shawl for a wrap. I wonder if the day turned unexpectedly chilly, hence the cardigan?

  5. She does love to wear a cardigan most of the time. The dress looks like a mistake, not attractive, unfortunately.

    1. Agreed, I really like Sophie, but not her dress this time.

  6. Sophie likes a little cardigan even if it adds absolutely nothing to an outfit. Shame - beautiful dress, pretty cardigan, just not made for each other.

    But she's great anyway...

  7. I wonder, if England is the only place in Northern Europe, where it isn't really hot summer at the moment? Sophie's outfit together looks very autumnal !

  8. Wonderful memorial and they got the best English royal for this engagement. She looks very pretty in this dress, just wish the cardigan had been a color from the dress. Sophie is so genuine and unpretentious, the family is lucky to have her.

  9. Dangerous dress for someone with the Sophie 's siluet (that is like mine)
    But I like Sophie she is always so graceful

  10. The dress is too long and too much fabric. The cardigan looks awful with it.

  11. That is a fun idea for a dress. I like the colour and the material and the design idea. It is too long though for the fun, young summer dress it´s meant to be. Looks too heavy on her. Make it knee-length and I would adore this.
    The cardigan was a bad idea. Wrong colour, wrong style, total clash.
    PS 1: I wonder if the back of the dress is one solid colour? Looks almost like it, and would be a pity if so (sofa cushion effect...)
    PS 2: I don´t know how many times I´ve written "make it knee-length" but it begs repeating in these times of midi-length-hype. I find it unflattering in 99% of cases.

  12. it is not just the bad combination of the dress and this cardigan. It is very unflattering at the waist. She needs different undergarments as well as the line is very visible.

  13. oh I love her style!
    the dress is very nice and the cardigan, too!
    First I thought the cardigan doesn't fit the dress exactly but the longer I look on it, the more I like the combination.

    The length of the dress is very nice, I think that length gets a revival this times.

  14. I don't like the dress and the cardigan is a totally different colourway, not to Sophie's usual standard.
