King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia arrived in Berlin yesterday to begin a state visit to Germany. Not surprisingly, Queen Silvia used the occasion to debut a new hat. In camel coloured felt, the design features a rounded cloche style crown and wide brim, raised on one side and edged with a wide black stripe. The black stripe gives a great punch of contrast to the hat and I particularly like the dimension provided by rows of camel stitching on it. While worn a little lower on Silvia’s head than I would prefer, my main quibble about this hat is its pairing with this grey coat and dress. Mixing neutrals can work well but in this instance, I’m not such a fan.
