I think this is a very nice and safe outfit choice. The last thing she needs right now is her picture on every "what is she wearing?!?!" spread in the magazines, so it's good she's sticking with a style that suits her very well.

Thank you Monic for posting a photo of the dress. It is quite pretty, but I am not sure I like the style of the sleeves. They look a little retro? But everything else is really nice.

That coat was pictured in 2006, so its quite an old piece which could be from 2006 or earlier. You wont find it in stores now but you might find something similar.

I totally agree with the beautiful pairing of the dress and the blazer. I loved her choice of a simple black clutch bag. I am also not so sure about the black tights, but I think she still looks great.

Maybe when she starts receiving a clothing allowance we'll see something different.
She already did, the Temperley London dress costs 895 ($1393).

The dark tights are very popular in the UK at the moment.

donnaK, are you saying the Temperley London dress was purchased from a clothing allowance or are you stressing the 'something different'?

The Temperley London dress she wore was from Fall/Winter 2009 Collection and she wore it in 2010. So Kate has had this dress for a year, but it's the first time we see it in public.

If I may speak for DonnaK i think she means that when Kate marries, and she will have a greater public role, she will have a bigger clothing allowance and thus she will have the opportunity to become a style icon.

She probably has a clothing allowance that she and her family have set up (or rather they just know how much to spend based on their budget) but its nothing like it will be.

I agree that people tend to give out titles so quickly without people earning them. The Next Diana/Grace/Jackie O, the next Madonna, etc. Sometimes its set up a lot of unfulfilled expectations and nasty comments.

Instead of being the next somebody be the original you.
