In agreement here. Pants that are not so loose would have worked wonderfully, and maybe in a nice shade of grey.

What is this? A wrap dress over a print dress? The colour combination isn't flattering and the wrap dress looks too small.
One word; 'ugh' . Bad. Just...awful.

This outfit is not good, and it does seem too casual. I think it looks like she's wearing a bathrobe.
I've worked with girls who actually had this issue, and they always dressed in neutral shades. 'Bathrobe' is a good way to describe the cardigan (or whatever it is) that she's wearing.

This is a very elegant and classy look for Stephanie. I'm not too fond of the shoes, but the suit and hat make up for them pretty darn nicely.

I think that the dress is recycled. Brown and green isn't a good combination.
That wrap has got to go. It's just atrocious. I love the shade of green though. It suits her.

The bathrobe neon green outfit looked ridiculous. The blue suit is better, in fact it's one of the few day wear outfits that is somewhat tailored closer to her figure. The Jacket, however, still doesn't fit. The waist hits her too high, and should be taken in a LOT which is why it makes her look big around the middle. Also, her bustline looks low and droopy which could be a function of the jacket, her underwear, or posture.
Love the color, skirt and the hat. Don't mind the shoes, glad they didn't seems too high.

Gosh poor Stephanie...LOL! A part of me doesn't want her to ever go "high style" because then there would be nothing to distinguish her from the other CP's.

There is something vaguely endearing and sweet about about this young woman who obviously doesn't have a clue how to pull herself together most of the time.

The only other Royal female I can remember who dressed as badly early on was Sarah Duchess of York.....

You don't need high style to look stylish. You just need the right pieces to get the look right. Easily if she brought a Zara dress and matched it with a summer jacket she would've looked good.

Why buy a double breasted coat - which has many flattering features if a true centered double breast, WITH ALL THE BUTTONS ON ONE SIDE?

It's silly, dated before you wear it and makes you look like you are about to tip overboard.

That was my first thought as well; those pants are too wide for the coat. She needs to find some more tailored pants (they don't have to be skinny pants, but a nice straight leg/boot cut would work). The color of the coat goes great with Stephanie's complexion, but the fabric is a little too shiny for my taste (or so it appears to me. However, I saw other pictures from this engagement, and frankly, her smile was her best feature, and the way she talked to the children melted my heart. Those will be the things that I'll remember when I'll be telling people about this relatively 'new' royal.

The only good thing in this outfit is the colour of the coat. Otherwise, the coat is ugly, the pants are ugly and she looks dowdy.

Haha, she does not need to hire a stylist, I would volunteer to dress her up at any time...
She has some lovely features and a good figure that just needs the right clothes and colours, everything else about her is fine! Would be fun to pick the dresses and jewels for the young Duchess, I am sure she is a great person to be with:-)

I agree that only good thing about this outfit is the color of the coat but even that she doesn't pull off well. The shade of red is too bright for her. The coat would've worked if it had a tie. Those pants should never been worn. Weren't they worn to an event with a t-shirt before her wedding. They had such an unflattering fit.

I don't understand the trench coat design.

The pants are awful and I feel like we've seen them plenty of times. They don't have a good cut, look way too wide for the coat and the colour doesn't go with the coat's colour.

Also, the coat could be nice but the fabric looks cheap.

And why is she wearing open toe shoes if the weather doesn't seem to be that nice?

I hate everything here, nothing works imo. Not the limp hairdo. Not the loud trench coat. Not the ghastly red peep toe shoes that she wore on her engagement day and should have chucked into the waste bin immediately afterward.

And especially not the %$#*&@! cheap looking tan pants-why why why does someone, anyone not tell this girl how damn ugly and unflattering those things are?? They should be burned!

I should have known that after the chic sublimities of her showing on Octave Sunday last week she'd regress. This is becoming predictable and depressing. I certainly don't want Stephanie to emulate Mary of Denmark, who is over a decade older than she is. What I wish Stephanie would do is dress like the young and pretty princess that she is. She is married to a very wealthy man. She has access to the best stylists.

How hard can it be???

I don't think there is anyone to tell her she dresses too old and wears things that don't suit her. Her husband loves her and probably doesn't care. Her mother in law probably doesn't want to cause a problem , maybe Maria Theres is trying to help by loaning her pieces. As for Stephanie she obviously does not see how she looks she is so used to dressing like an older woman. I hope she figures it out like Mathilde and starts dressing her age and in things that look good and fit properly.

Back to Stéphanie - I admire her for being herself and I trust that she will find her own style perfectly fitting her and that she will master it with time. That said if she takes too much time I might start complaining loudly and even, in due time, give a try to English sarcasm. We already have a beautiful, sensitive and brilliant crown princess with a slighty deficient fashion-sense. One is enough. Go Stéphanie Go! Allez Stéph Allez!

Back to the outfit. In thinking about it, there are several things that could have worked here.....IF....the pants were longer (about 1 1/2 or 2 inches) and the coat were cut to hit her at the hip. Style her hair differently and give her a good clutch purse in a print and we probably would be having a different discussion. I'm looking on the positive side here.
