Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden took part in festitivites marking the 1,000th Anniversary of Skara Diocese today. For this celebration, Victoria wore a navy straw fascinator headband of abstract leaves and ruffled flowers, trimmed with a few navy feathers.
There are a few things that don’t feel right to me about this ensemble. The coat is adorable but the royal blue printed gingham dress just isn’t the right match for it. While the navy fascinator matches the coat very well, I think it would have been shown to greater effect with a more free and flowing hairstyle (something like this). Victoria’s sleek hairstyle is great but I think it would have worked much better with a simple cream straw picture hat.
I am finding it more and more difficult to love royal fascinators. Does this one deserve my dislike or am I being too fickle about the fascinator?
