while on state visit to Poland last week, Queen Mathilde repeated an Armani pleated dress and coat. We first saw her wear these two elegant grey pieces at Expo 2015 in Milan back in June, where she topped them with a straw calot hat. The brimmed felt hat Mathilde wore this week shows another instance of using a pair of straw and felt hats to extend the wear-ability of the outfit to several seasons. The two hats, while lovely in their own rights, lend different tones to the ensemble.
Dove grey straw calot hat with back knot detail worn June 12, 2015 in Italy
Grey felt hat with moulded high crown, short brim and folded ribbon trim worn October 14, 2015 in Poland
I’m curious, dear readers- which hat do you like best with this beautiful coat and dress?
