In the 1990s, Duchess Sophie wore a timeless outfit of a red jacket and a super stylish Burberry bag.
The Duchess Sophie is not only a popular public figure, but also a role model in terms of style. Her outfits are always inspiring, whether it’s her cornflower-blue suit or her pale pink satin skirt. She’s the epitome of a stylish young woman who knows how to balance a sophisticated look with youthful style.
Recenty, we found a photo from the mid-90s of the Duchess. Her outfit is too cute not to share.
This outfit is a vintage fantasy.
She first debuted this outfit in London, four years before marrying Prince Edward in the year 1999. Before she married Prince Edward, she was employed in London by Capital Radio, and other British network, and she inspired the masses even then with her chic look.
She started off her outfit with a red jacket that featured black velvet details on the sleeves, and gold hardware to add an additional layer of elegance. She paired her jacket with simple black cigarette trouser – and we wonder if Queen Letizia was also inspired, since she wore stylish cigarette trouser.
She paired the bold ruby jacket, with an unbelievably chic Burberry crossbody handbag. The bag featured the Burberry plaid print on the front of the purse and brown leather accents. She finished the look with a pair black loafers that had gold hardware.
We’re eager to recreate the look, which is still trendy even after 20 years.
