Of course I respect other posters' opinions, but I didn't think her outfit is as bad as some are making it seem. Although I do think both Beatrice and Eugenie try a little too hard sometimes.

EDIT: This article from the Daily Mail says that Beatrice's top is from Juicy Couture.
I know- I respect others opinions too, but you would think she repeated her William and Catherine wedding outfit! Heaven help us!

Is there a way to say you don't like someone's outfit without calling them a dog's dinner? Like saying you don't like what she wore without labeling it so vitriolically.

I think the outfit not the person is the "dog's dinner" and all it means in the UK is "a bit of a mess" - hardly vitriolic.

Muriel:In our culture, flat shoes are typically not worn when one is dressed up, as Beatrice was. It would just not be considered "the done thing". I accept that perhaps taupe or gold coloured wedges might have been a better choice.

Wedges are considered to be a form of being *dressed up*, wedges are for informal times, shopping, sports events, movies, dinner out...things like that. There are formal flats, just because a shoe is *flat* doesn't mean it can't be used for a formal occasion.

I think we should agree to just disagree about the Duke of York's daughter's. Being a seamstress and sewing for as long as I can remember I just had mismatched fashion in anything. Maybe as someone said to me, go to London and take them shopping and teach them for their mother sure has no fashion sense either and the father is to busy with his own life.

The pieces by themselves are fine, even great, they just are pretty disjointed. Plus, is a garden party with the Queen the moment to wear hipster clothes? Um, no.

Princess Beatrice cuts a stylish figure as she dines out with boyfriend Dave Clark | Royal | News | Daily Express
This is the night of the garden party, out with Dave. She's kept the blouse on and switched to a short black skirt w/ dark tights, kept the wedges - blouse, skirt, shiny black patent leather wedges all work together, IMO, but she adds a shiny blue jacket (pretty in it's own right) which is totally discordant w/ the rest of the outfit, and she has a large purple purse - what is she carrying in that thing?
I realize I'm conservative and adhere to less is more in fashion, and there are those who say black goes with anything, but lately so much of what Beatrice wears seems a jumble of items that are nice individually but are wrong together. The basic thought process of does this 'go' with that seems to be missing from many of her combos.
The dress she wore the day before was lovely, IMO, simple yet very pretty.

I don't like what Beatrice is wearing, but the queen looks wonderful!
That color is great on her, and she looks like springtime. so flowery.
Sorry if OT.

Your comment is right on, she has no thought process what so ever when it comes to fashion, wear the first thing she sees and likes and *let's go Dave*, out the door a fashion mess from head to toe. I actually am beginning to feel sorry for her because it seems she does not think with the brains because if she did she would look in a mirror and see the mess she is, or else she just goes with the moment and that's it, whatever. Horrible way to life a life when so much is dropped at your feet and you could be doing so much for the family and country....shame her parents didn't teach their children to be productive members of society instead of being just party girls.

I fail to find anything stylish about this get up. It's very rare I find something to admire about Beatrice ( or indeed Eugenie/Sarah's) choice of outfits. They rarely get it right IMO, I'd like to think they don't care about style, but Beatrice has attended several fashion shows of late suggesting she is interested in looking good. Is there any hope?

You either have style or you don't and Beatrice and Eugenie just don't. They don't seem to think about the outfits at all. The garden party outfit was awful the shirt looked tacky, the hat went with nothing, the skirt was in my opinion too casual and those wedges should have been left at home. I didn't think she could get any worse yet she has the outfit she wore out with Dave was just a mess. It clashed and while it was probably expensive I don't think that is the way it was supposed to have been worn. Bea is very like her mother in this sense she can't dress either and considering the access she has to fashion it's a shame. I wish she would do something with her hair too.

I don't think that anyone will ever look to either Beatrice or Eugenie as fashion setters or accuse them of being a clothes horse and that is OK in my book. There are people that could wear the outfits these girls do and look like they've just stepped out of a glossy magazine photo. That's the difference between aplomb and a bomb I guess.

One thing that will go down in the annals of history though is the total look of puzzlement that reverberated around the world as Beatrice stepped out of the car in "that" hat. It quickly went viral though and Bea did a fantastic turnaround of the situation though with auctioning off the hat for charity. Its funny that to this day, enter Beatrice and hat into a search engine and within milliseconds, THAT hat is splashed all over the page.

I think too that the image of being "party girls" is based mostly on what the public is allowed to see of their lives as for the most part these girls are private citizens. They have their own private security and sponsor their charities privately and have their own private wealth. Very little that they do is as representatives of family and country.

That's a matter of opinion, I disagree that you either have style or you don't. It's not a gene you can inherit.

These are two girls, in their twenties, who are possibly still trying to find their style in some peoples eyes. What they wear is never going to please the masses, nor should it. Beatrice and Eugenie should dress for themselves not for other people.

Beatrice's garden party outfit was nice, the black patent wedges weren't appropriate and the pearl bedding on the blouse collar didn't match the skirt. These clothes certainly aren't "hipster".

Princess Beatrice is sophisticated in black and white as she steps out on yet another date night with boyfriend Dave Clark | Mail Online


I think Beatrice looks quite nice here.
If she'd carried a colorful bag, the outfit would be perfect, imo.

But it's fine as it is.

Princess Eugene wearing the same white dress at a garden party at Buckingham Palace today, June 10, and at a charity event this evening - I like the evening version without the hat and with different shoes better:

I love this outfit, so clean and crisp, Eugenie pulls off monochrome well.
