No one needs her to be a fashionista (and BTW considering all the time she spends on hair, clothes and such she does have an obvious interest in being one), but being appropriately styled is important for work. When you said she had no interest in fashion and was just herself, I went back to look and make sure I wasn't on Stephanie's thread instead. Might be true about Steph, but Kate is another matter.

I really don't think most bosses would take issue with Kate's look. Not in my experience anyway.

Best I can tell some posters equate hair down with unkempt hair. That's a pretty common hairstyle anywhere and certainly in the workplace. I see no issue there. At worst outside, if it's windy, then, i can see it. I still don't consider it a major issue. Up dos are not necessary.

I can't see any boss caring about her eye make up. Some may see it as a bit thick, but it is hardly a HR issue.

As for skirts, most of hers are appropriate for any professional environment. They don't have to be knee length to be work acceptable imo.

Yeah. Not a fan of the hat either. The coat is pretty.

The coat is pretty, but the red and brown combo looks kind of dumpy. And the hat is okay but might be better positioned further back, kind of in a pillbox way.

I think the coat and the hat are both fine- just not together, they don't combine well.
And why red and brown? Again, the colors are not a good team.

Then you are fortunate. When you work in an office, certain standards are expected. Your hair can be loose but it needs to be well maintained. If it is windy, you should take that into account and your hair should be in a style that your hair wont be in your eyes. Her skirts are often quite short, no they don't need to be knee length but they are certainly not business length. And when she is bending down to meet kids or people in wheelchairs, a slightly better length would be advised. You fill find many companies indeed have rules about how much makeup, hair coloring, jewelry and so on an employee can wear. Making a first impression on clients is important, whether you are the receptionist or the CEO.

Kate seems to have two levels 1. boring and slightly matronly like today's outfit. The color is the big bonus here. 2. younger but often too short or just not fitted right/paired right. She needs to find a balance. Honestly I prefer the matronly style as it is at least more professional, she just needs to contain the hair especially when outdoors.

Exactly. I mean... A nice skirt, a blouse or jacket and a nicely blown out loose hair is not inappropriate. Especialy not with opaque tights.

I've worked in many offices and I've never heard of an an employer calling someone out for how much make-up they wear. Nor have I heard anyone being told that they can't have their hair hanging loose. As for her skirt, the length is no shorter than what some of the other royal women wear.

I liked today's red coat, but I didn't care for the hat.

She looks wonderful. The coat is very chic and elegant.

I guess I'm the only one.... but I LOVE that hat. I do think it looks better with her hair back. I think I might have preferred black rather than brown accessories but it's no big deal. I do think Catherine looks rather tired, but of course I'm sure the DF chose pictures that looked that way.

She's wearing CPM's hat again. I really like it and the coat and don't mind the colour combination either.

The Duchess of Cambridge's Daytime Fashion Part 17: January 2016 -

I like the short skirt and think it is fine to wear this length with opaque tights. Not sure the blouse works with it.
As for the hat, I think it is a great hat but it doesn't suit her. The coat is lovely and I like her in red but with this hat and the length of the coat, I think boots would have been better.

I work in an office for a large company. We have a dress code. I'm well aware of what appropriate work attire looks like.

She looks perfectly appropriate no job I know of would tell her how to wear her hair.

I must admit I find the pairing of brown and red a little strange. Her coat is pretty shapeless and not at all stylish or "fashionably long", but rather a little dowdy. Her hat is beautiful but paired with a ponytail it looks decidedly odd.

Individually her hat and accessories are lovely but paired with the coat and a ponytail I would mark it a whopping miss.

Re the first part of your post-what? Employers do not usually get into hair style, length, or makeup, unless it's so outrageous.

I really like the brown and red combo. Like,all the chocolate,brown accessories.,I especially like the hat but think it looks weird,with a pony tail. Low chignon would have been better.

Jobs that require hair to be tied back or restrained are ones such as :manufacturing, food service, police/security/military or healthcare. My husband is employed by a very large aerospace corporation in Southern California. His comment is that her hair being worn loose would not be an issue in their office environment.

Apparently, her advisor Rebecca Deacon is very unprofessional. She wears her hair loose while on the job, and her skirts are almost always above the knee. Why here she is today in all her inappropriate glory. She’s on the far left.

She’s clearly leading Catherine down the wrong path. Who does that Rebecca think she is? A 21st century woman? I think we should write to KP and demand Rebecca’s immediate termination. If we replace her with a middle-age, male, stodgy advisor, he can teach Catherine about how a real woman carries herself.
