The casual look is not too bad. I'm not crazy about the wedges, but otherwise, it's fine.

The casual look IMO makes her look like a stick ... the look is ok for the purpose though and I agree the wedge think is odd .. walking stick.

Now I know why my hairstyle like Kate's in this picture never worked, I did not use enough hair pins. Too late now for me since I have really short hair.

...and those skinny jeans to be burned with the wedgies. She is too slender to wear those jeans.

The only thing that works for me is the top. The jacket is too structured to wear with the pants, and the navy blue tones are too far apart.

I do have to say that she has really ramped up the "working" look. Her red outfit and the blue coat are lovely.

I like the striped top, too, but not those jeggings nor the wedges. Kate always does look best in casual wear, IMO.

Well, thank goodness William knows how to rock a blue sweater and brown pants on this occasion! I think it's wise for Catherine to adopt a 'uniform' for such events. She doesn't need to look like a movie star on the red carpet when she's on a sailing vessel (and winning races). How can you be too slender to wear skinny jeans?

I love the blue jacket and Catherine looked wonderful that day, although my only complaint would be that the pockets are a little on the large side. I'm a big fan of that shade of blue.

I also liked Catherine's latest outfit - what I wear is irrelevant to this thread but I wore a very similar outfit to her's yesterday, although I wore a hoodie and Converse trainers with it instead. I doubt it was from the same designer as Catherine's! I have mixed reviews on her wedges, although that may be due to the fact that I'm not that partial to wedges in general.

Well I'm in the Northern Hemisphere, so it's natural that I'll forget these things. But you are indeed correct - New Zealand is currently experiencing autumn.

I'm part of team "Someone burn those wedges". I always thinks she looks her best in casual outfits and this time was no exception. But I'm not a huge fan of the cut of this Zara blazer, I very much prefer her Emilio Pucci one.

I'm afraid her posture has suffered from the hair or just in general. You can see her head forward posture instead of head straight up, pretty clearly when she has her hair pulled back. Her Habit of clasping her hands together has exacerbated the overall problem.

The green dress is very Jackie Kennedy...lovely look but I don't care much for the zipper part.

This dress has got somewhat unflattering geometric patterns in the upper part. The zip spoils this dress for me. The colour is lovely though.

Well, since it is a coat, the zipper makes better sense. But I still don't like the zipper.

Are you saying that Catherine is leading with her chin to enable her to see clear of her curtain of hair? I have to admit, when her posture was mentioned I sort of laughed it off but, looking at these photos I beleive you have noticed a very important problem which, if not remedied, will cause her great discomfort later if not actual pain.

So in the long term I think the poor woman will be spending a lot of time wth books . . . on her head and not in her hands. I guess this is an unfortunate side effect of marrying her Prince. But she can always look on the bright side and know the payoff is getting to wear really fabulous clothes and make them look great instead of the other way around.

The zipper does indeed ruin the effect of the coat. If the dress that was posted here is the one Catherine is wearing, then it's quite lovely. I love the shade of green.
