Sophie Wessex channels Kate Middleton in Botswana with ’50s dress’ and diamond bracelet
Sophie chose her Co belted linen and cotton blend midi dress, designed by Stephanie Danan and Justin Kern.
It’s described as a “simple linen-cotton blend dress that nods to ’50s workwear in its classic A-line silhouette.” Unfortunately, this dress is no longer in stock.
The style was reminiscent of Kate Middleton’s yellow Karen Millen dress she wore last week.
This dress was so popular among royal fans that it is no longer in stock.
Sophie’s dress today was an elegant and airy white dress, with a belt at the waist completing a chic look.
The sleeves reached the Countess’s elbows and the skirt came just below Sophie’s knees.
Sophie paired her dress with espadrilles that the Countess has worn on several occasions.
These were her Penelope Chilvers Scoop Leather Espadrilles in tan, which sell for £159.
DO NOT MISS :
Although they are more expensive than your average espadrille, the Countess has worn them a lot and demonstrated their durability by wearing the same pair to royal events over the past few years.
For today’s occasion, Sophie wore her blonde hair in a low bun, wore simple dangling earrings and her £375 Felt gold chain bracelet with a sliced diamond on her right hand.
She was carrying her Sophie Habsburg Capri bag, which costs 180 euros or around £158.
The Countess was visiting Molefe Primary School in Kopong, which participated in the Pono Yame School Eye Health Programme.
Kate opted for bold navy accessories to contrast her sleek dress, including a pair of navy heeled pumps.
In her hands, Kate carried a simple blue velvet clutch that perfectly matched the tone of her famous sapphire engagement ring.
Kate wore a pair of small hoop earrings with dangling details and wore her hair in her signature waves.
The earrings were the Hera White Gold and Diamond Pear Detachable Drop Earrings from Emily Mortimer Jewellery, which retail for £795.
