And wearing a short skirt on a night out doesn't equate extreme. The young women in the BRF are going to wear clothes that they and othr women their age find fashionable and appropriate. Actually for a night out her outfit is conservative.

LaRae

Why does she has to dress "conservatively"? She is young; she wears suitable clothes for her age and she looks good. This is normal clothing length for girls of her age in the UK.

It's a shame that has become 'normal'. Not quite sure why women want to walk around half dressed.

She isn't half dressed - that is a real exaggeration.

It must to a cultural thing - nearly all those who don't like it are from the US (plus 1 that doesn't say).

It isn't an age thing cos I am getting on a bit now.

A skirt that short is being half dressed.

In your opinion - it is the norm for girls of Beatrice's age here in Australia on a night out - or even to wear them to school - that length and shorter are regularly seen being worn as school uniforms.

I honestly don't know what is with this board wanting young woman to dress like they are 50 or 60.
I agree. Young women should dress like young women not like their mothers. Wearing a short skirt is not necessarily immodest.

I don't get it. It's a weird prudish thing.

I'm an American and I think she looks fine, have no problem with the length of the skirt. Half dressed good lord; clearly some people haven't been to a club if you think Beatrice is half dressed.

Half dressed your kidding? That is the usual legnth these days I've seen many way shorter then that. It's normal and there is nothing wrong with it nothing is showing that shouldn't be. What do you want her to be dressed from head to toe and maybe show a daring ankle every now and then? That is so 100 years ago and not going to happen.

If we go back 40 years to when their mothers were girls this skirt would almost have been 'long' then.

This is a lovely look. She looks age-appropriate, but also lady-like.

Absolutely! I'm still very far from fifty or sixty, but I do tend to dress in a conservative and modest manner. Thankfully, I've only received compliments on what I wear, and it looks nothing like things from the wardrobes or my mother, or grandmother.

Clearly you need to get out more and see what young women are wearing in the 21st century. That skirt is no where near to being short or half dressed when compared to what their contemporaries are wearing on nights out.

Beatrice and Eugenie at a garden party held at Buckingham Palace on May 30 - I like both outfits including the hats:

Improving but the pattern on Beatrice's dress is a bit blinding.

The jacket Eugenie is wearing is a bit too tight. Give them 8 for trying.

They both look very nice. Eugenie's color combination is interesting.

The hats are odd indeed, especially Princess Beatrice's one. Princess Eugenie's wedges do not look particularly flattering.
