I like the look of Victoria's outfit but the fit was really off IMO. It appeared to be too small. There is probably quite a few weeks between fitting/purchasing an item and wearing of that item to such a high profile event and babies don't take that into consideration when they are growing!!!.

Very similar but not identical to a dress Princess Sofia wore recently. I think it was her visit to Varmland. This black and white pattern seems to be trending now.

Ok I love the sweater...that is very cute. The black dress..it's just a black dress.

The print dress reminds me of the one Kate wore recently....meh. Not a fan of either. I like the style of the dress but not the print pattern.

The print dress is most unflattering on her!

Victoria's christening outfit was so lovely. The color and style really suited her. I think she was the best dressed of the day.

As for yesterday and today's outfits, not feeling either one. The pattern on today's dress is way too busy.

I don't love either of the latest two outfits. I particularly don't like her make up with printed outfit. She's glowing and obviously happy but I think she needs a pop of colour with a brighter lipstick.

Didn't like the outfit yesterday, but the dress she wore today was lovely. Plus, she was so beautiful! This pregnancy really suits her, making her face glowing!

October 15, 2015 - Victoria in a maternity dress by Séraphine

Its a very pretty dress but I think Victoria ruined it by wearing black tights. She could've worn thinner black tights which would've looks nicer IMO.

She looks lovely in that dress - I don't mind opaque tights with dresses and they must be warmer!! So far, I'm liking her maternity clothes.

Love the dress, loathe the heavy, dense black tights and OMG, booties! That's a soft floaty feminine dress that calls for nude hose and court or flat shoes. Instead, we have a 'look' so dark, heavy, and dense that it's not easy to see where the tights end and the shapeless booties begin. It has created a heavy and clumpy look.

This photo of Victoria seated, showing just the top view, gives the same soft, floaty, feminine effect the designer intended. What a shame that 'look' doesn't carry through to the shoes.

I loved the opaque tights and shoes. I think she did a good job translating a summery dress for the fall. Very stylish!

The tights are fine she is warm and that is important , I liked the dress. Her style this time is much better than the last time with all the tent clothing.

I wish she'd go back to the style she wore to the baptism the other day...or similar styles.

I agree. And this is a VERY normal way to dress in the nordic countries. It looks sooooo wierd to dress in see through tights in the fall here. Not to mention you would freeze to death.

Good grief! A floaty, sheer dress with heavy black tights And booties?!! A big no-no in my book. If anything, the sheer dress shouldn't be worn if it's that cold! Victoria looks nice sitting down, very feminine.

I have noticed that the complaint on opaque tights mostly come from people that are from warmer places. (This is no complaint, just an observation). So just to explain. Thicker tights actually make a huge difference in how you keep warm. On the top, you can have a coat but you can't really have thermals on the bottom in a case like this. So the walking from the car etc get's fastly cold in the colder months (that can range from september to april). I've done it once of twice for new years and stuff, but it IS cold. So to even be able to wear dresses more than 3 months a year, tights is the only way to go. So its a very common look to have thick tights like that. I myself cannot stand wearing pants (yes, I', wierd like that) and in the winter when waiting for the bus I used to have a pair of thick tights (like those Victoria wear) under my knitted tights to keep warm :) Just some insight.

Victoria's Seraphine dress was lovely, and the black tights and booties looked good with it. Black/dark tights and booties are something I wear almost every day in the winter, even autumn when it gets cold. They are totally normal to wear in Scandinavia. I wear booties also with skirts and dresses, nothing strange in that. And when I look around, almost all the women do the same. Of course you can wear a silk dress with black tights and booties in the autumn and winter.

Exactly! This is standard wear for most of the year if you're not wearing pants.

Welcome to Sweden during the colder season and walk around in thin hose and shoes, and you will soon risk getting a urinary tract infection. I doubt Victoria wants to risk getting an UTI at the moment, and she dresses sensibly for the Swedish climate. Would you prefer seeing her wearing trousers/pants during the cold season?
