Camila Parker Bowles: Duchess stuns in ‘vibrant’ blue dress for latest appearance
Although she was in the comfort of her own home, Camilla was pictured yesterday wearing a stunning blue and white dress with a pair of low heels. The Duchess welcomed a group of women who have been supported by the Prince’s Trust to Clarence House.
Camilla has a knack for making a smart-casual look work, and she paired the dress with nude-coloured low heels.
When wearing florals, a neutral shoe colour is essential, claimed personal stylist and fashion expert Samantha Harman.
She said: “Accessories are also really important when wearing florals. The wrong shoes or handbag can drain all the joy from the print.
“So choose neutrals, like the Duchess. A nude shoe will elongate your legs.”
As for earrings, Camilla wore a dangling gold pair with tiny pearls hanging from the ends.
Although the Duchess’ dress has rarely been seen in the past, Camilla often wears blue.
According to Samantha, this colour suits her best and “brings out her eyes”.
She said: “This is such a great colour on the Duchess.
“As you get older, it’s tempting to opt for muted or darker colours, but as the Duchess proves here – bright colour can make you look so vibrant.
“With Camilla, I would say the older she gets the more fashionable she has become.
“She comes across as a woman who really knows who she is and what she likes.
“And, particularly over the last couple of years, she has worn some amazing, fashion-forward pieces.”
