I don't think it's an official term! It's what the person who writes the Order of Sartorial Splendor blog calls them (they're her pet peeve) so I think a lot of us who follow that blog think of them that way when royals wear them.

They're not my favorite, but I don't hate them as much as a lot of people do.

Edit: Apparently they ARE an official term! I must be out of the fashion loop too, because I'd never heard the word used in any other context.

Looks like a perfect cold-day-at-the-park outfit to me, the scarf makes it chic.

Lovely outfit and indeed it is a causal look.

From what I can see of that outfit, I like it for casual playtime at the playground. I do like the scarf; I have a similar one in brown and beige.

Cause I´ve always seen them worn like Mary (with matching tights, I think that´s what you all mean)...
I have seen them worn with jeans, which only looks good if the jeans are skinny jeans and the person wearing them is thin.

Is it the same coat she wore to church earlier? The scarf looks nice.

I really like this look as well. The coat and trousers are very nice; casual and comfortable (and still church-appropriate).

Pictures of today's New Year's reception of the diplomatic corps. Seems to me that this is a new 'uniform' for the New Year's court for Mary.

Its really lovely and appropriate. The Queen looks smashing though. (notice she is holding her purse) This is a good color for this event.

Agree this does have a rather "military uniform" look about it. Just add some shoulder tassels, random gold buttons, a few medals, an you're good to go! Should we salute or bow, I'm confused?

Actually...Crown Princess Mary is wearing her first New Year's Court dress from 2006 which has been modified (the long train is gone).
