It is a bit too casual for an opening of the honourable Fryske Akademy. Especially for openings, first stones, ribbon-cuttings and that sort of things Dutch royals dress up (hat and/or gloves). Laurentien was pretty normal for her usual standards but she could have spiced it up a bit. She is a Princess of the Netherlands opening a building. Not thw lady-next-door. I miss that a bit in her way of dressing (also on Prinsjesdag or so).

One doesn't need to wear a hat and gloves to look professional or royal

Definitely time for Laurentide. I love the color of the sweater. And the dress seems quite nice. But the cut of the top seems odd with the cardigan, not a good pairing.

Laurentien's latest outfit is beautiful and I like how she has worn a plain dress but added a pop of colour to it with the purple cardigan. But I agree with those who have said this is rather conservative compared to Laurentien's usual outfits! Maybe she had the fashion equivalent of "writer's block" and just chose to go with something more ordinary yesterday

Princess Laurentien at the Prinsjesdag today, September 20. It was meant to be elegant, but to me it looks like widow's weeds:

She's worn worse. Far worse sadly, so I'll take what is a pretty decent outfit from her any time. :)

She has worn worse but this outfit is not flattering on the Princess and I don't care for the hat either.

It is a most peculiar outfit but we must remember she is just doing things as a private person ("Laurentien van Oranje" promoting her book). Her real royal engagements, going out as HRH Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands are very rare. Only a handful in a year.

The pink coat is really nice and the outfit underneath is great. One of her nicest looks recently.

The outfit to Prinsjesdag was actually really disappointing, looked like it came from a funeral scene from one of the movies. It was just too dark for such an event.

I've decided that I quite like the outfit Laurentien wore to Prinsjesdag. Whilst it's rather plain in the terms of colour, I think it fits her usual taste because it's rather "prominent" in feel to me. I like the regalness of the dress and I agree with An Ard Ri - she looks like a royal woman from Catherine de Medici's time, or even Catherine herself! I like her dragon fly brooch too. The only thing I don't like about this look is her hat, but generally I'm not really a "hat person" so it can be hard for me to like hats.

I like Laurentien's second outfit. The colours go well together. I particularly like her coat's soft shade of pink, very pretty.

Laurentien attended the 3rd National Water Savers Day in Rotterdam today, October 13 - back to the eye-catching Laurentien prints, though the leather pants are actually more eye-catching this time

Thank you, Iceflower. I like the look overall - but then it is like something I might wear. Leather pants? I always think they look uncomfortable, in addition to how they look to others. But she has a lovely smile.
