I think trouser suits should be left to the office, personally. They generally age the wearer IMO.

I really like these casual outfits, though I prefer it when Kate has her hair in a ponytail - it really suits her.

As liv pointed out, Kate was wearing a red Zara Blazer with Gathered Shoulders, Zara black skinny jeans, and a polka dot blouse.
(Darn, if I start writing the prices as well, I might as well apply for work at DM).
She looks great! I love that red jacket. Nice with the black pants and the shirt.

I'm glad that some of the labels Catherine favors will make their way over to the States. I'd love to own a Katherine Hooker coat. Her designs have a classy look and would go with dressy as well as casual outfits.

August 10, 2012 - Kate in a white skirt matched with a white sleeveless top.

Finally not in skinny pants matched with a jacket. Kate in a white outfit, reminds me of a tennis player, she could've buttoned on of the buttons up IMO. Nevertheless the color looks good on her. Her hair for once seems to not be so curly from the ends, i like the soft ends like this. Make up looks good, she looks quite natural.

Close up ** Full view

Different views of the outfit:
- The full outfit 1 - The full outfit 2 - Close up 1 - Close up 2

The skirt is nice; a bit short but perfectly appropriate for the occasion.
I agree with dazzling about the top.

I'm glad about that, too.

I really liked her white skirt today. Very cute.

I thought her skirt was cute as well, albeit a tad short. Didn't really care that much for the top especially with that button not buttoned. It looked like it was a size too small...

Speaking of the skirt, it's a fairly old, pre-wedding one; she used to wear it a lot in 2007 and a couple of times in 2008.

Fantastic look. Great outfit for a v hot day and a sporting event. Not too short in my opinion. She was wearing that skirt in 2007 which is interesting.

Poor Catherine - lots of people on here comment about her short clothes but the other European princesses wear short clothes and hardly ever a complaint.

I'm really impressed that she was able to keep that skirt so pure white after all of these years! I would think that by now it would look yellowed or a bit greyish.. :)

Yeah, I'm always confused when I see comments about her skirts being too short. I've seen plenty of royals wear shorter skirts to official events and no one really makes an issue of it.

Anyway, her outfit today is really cute. I remember her wearing the skirt years ago and I've always liked it. Nice to see her pull it out of her closet again.

Is anybody else surprised at the limited wardrobe Kate has worn during the Olympics? The navy blazer, navy wedge shoes, navy skinny jeans have all been worn practically on a daily basis, with varying blue or white tops. (I'm hoping for her sake that she has more than one pair of the jeans!) I get that they look good with the Team GB range, but I much preferred the pretty dresses that CP Mary wore along with her Team Denmark pieces. I'm sure we'll get a lot more variety on the Southeast Asia tour -- I hope so!

The white skirt is cute but would have liked to have seen it with the blue Team GB shirt. I'm not a huge white on white fan. A cute pair of flats or a slightly shorter heel would have been better also. She looks good, just some observations.

It might have been a deliberate (and unfortunately, unsuccessful) attempt to divert attention from Kate to the athletes who were actually competing.

Am not a fan of this outfit, but only due to my own fashion quirks - I really, really dislike sleeveless shirts that have collars (I don't know why it bothers me so much) and I don't really like the white on white either. Not really a bad outfit, but just not to my taste!

CP MAry is attending in a non-official olympic capacity and can wear pretty much what she likes.

Catherine is attending in an official capacity as GB Olympic Ambassador. They gave her the GB kit to wear and she's done it to every sporting event.. She has matched it with low key, previously worn garments with "dont bother to check out new clothes" call to all the fashionistas. That's why I loved the fact that on the hottest day so far, she got out a skirt at least 5 years old so that wouldn't make front page news.

So no, I'm not surprised, I'm very pleased and she's been looking good.

I agree - I think she has done her best to minimize her fashion as part of the Olympic story. She has looked spot on at every event, dressing what has become her signature style: appropriately. And if she has had some influence, it may be that the other officials and are making the efforts to wear their GB kit as well. And the more the merchandise sells, the more money to support Team GB.... doing her job every way she can. If Kate had worn cute sun dresses and new summer clothes each day - THAT would have been the story.

I think she looked adorable today. probably the closest to her true personal style we have seen.
