Kate in Navy & White For Equestrian Olympic Event » What Kate Wore

Kate looks chic in the navy blazer, white team GB polo and navy jeans for this event. My only question is over the choice of very high wedges for the event - she is braver than me for choosing such as high heel for this day time outdoorsy event. Think it would have looked better with a pair of pumps - same as with Mary yesterday at the swimming in her Louboutain wedges

I liked a polo shirt and blazer. A ponytail would have been better.

I like the outfit, also the shoes, but the jeans are too skinny, so they had very unflattering wrinkles, IMO.

I think she looks great! Minus the shoes, I love this casual look. I especially love that jacket.

I like what she's wearing, it's casual but stylish and elegant at the same time. Very nice done!

I really don't like the high wedges, but the rest of the outfit is fine and appropriate for the occasion.

My feelings exactly. The shoes make me nervous, they're so high. However, again, Catherine is able to pull them off. Would a pair ballet flats looked better? Absolutely.

I like the top part, not a fan of the skinny jeans although they dont look as atrocious as the stale blue ones in front of Buck Palace.

The plateau wedges look ridiculous.

Omg! Kate is wearing tight pants again....what is the world coming to?!
Kate's look is fine but the person who really stood out to me was William.

Ooh, I like this even more than yesterday's outfit. I love a good striped top, and I'm already a fan of a jeans and blazer combo.

I don't think so. I, personally, can't stand ballet flats, I don't like the way they look and I don't think anyone's feet look good in those. So for me a pair of ballet flats would not only not look better but would look far worse.

I like today's look. Still not crazy about the choice of footwear, though.

I am wondering if Catherine may have "foot issues". I cannot wear anything like a ballet flat ... no support. Wedges or lower heels seem to work, certainly she would not want to wear orthopedic support shoes. Wedges can give support with a more casual look.

I also noticed, when I put on few pairs of ballet flats (just to see if I may change my mind after wearing some ), they are all so thin, it felt like walking on the bare ground. So, that also may be why some people (who knows, may be Catherine included) don't wear them. Wedges surely look good with casual outfits, they fit the skinny jeans great.

I like this look better than yesterday, especially the top and blazer. Again, I'm not crazy about the towering wedges.
