I don't like her casual looks at all. Trousers are to tight and looks lkie their are wash-out. Boots are also naaaah. The top is boring.

I'd prefer her in some soft red cardigan, maybe with something extra on it, blue jeans and black leather boots. Still comfortable, casual, but more dressy.

It's a scouts event, something fancier would not be appropriate. Though agree hate her tight pants.

What she was doing didn't call for dressy. She is dressed comfortable to be with kids.

All in all she looked good. The relaxed look was appropriate for the event, and I liked the sweater. The only thing that wasn't right for me was her hair: too flat.

I really want to like it....I do like the print...but not that much of the print. Maybe if it was a top of the print with a dark skirt. Or the skirt with a dark top.

I like the style ...a scoop or vee neck might of made it look less severe though.

Video in the article. Nice look at the clothes and a funny exchange with Harry and Kate.

i liked the dress, although it is nothing i swoon over. it reminds me of some of her LK bennett dresses such as this one :
The Humane Society of the United States is the nation’s largest and most effective animal protection organization.

Totally agree. Too much of the print, better broken up by solid bottom or top. And your neckline suggestion as well.

I do give her points for the festive color

I agree.

Still, the colors suit the season.

Nice dress but the skirt is too long - knee length would be better.

Look good with one of her red or green coats

Dislike the dress. Colors are festive. Wondering if some more interesting accessories could have made it a better shoes maybe or a more colorful belt.

I Not being funny when I say I can easily visualise the Queen or Princess Anne wearing this. It looks ancient but in the case of Kate's clothes that's not for the first time.

I agree with Princess Anne; but I can't imagine HM wearing Catherine's dress. I like the festive colours, but it does indeed look rather old fashioned. It has quite a 1940s vibe to me.

In my opinion a reasonably pretty frock is spoilt by the severe and heavy-looking belt and buckle. Just a narrow, not-too-tight belt covered in the dress-fabric would have been fine.
