I’m not overly familiar with 70s fashion as that’s not my favorite decade at all but I do believe the 70s was a ‘modern’ update on past decades and pulled from the 20-40s, no? Maybe that’s why.

The 70s was very 'magpie' in that it took ideas from everywhere and anywhere.. so yes there were elements pulled from those decades.

Really like it! Love that the accessories highlight the tones in the dress. My kind of style!

Not crazy about the outfit. Too dowdy/matronly. If it were shorter it would have looked more proportioned especially because the waist is so high. Her hair looks good but if she had worn it up it could have had a more 1940s vibe which would have worked better.

A perfect example of 1940s style (even earlier maybe) was her outfit at her sister's wedding. She looked spectacular.

On the Sky live news feed when she responded to a question about the engagements it looked dark brown but it looks to be black in most of the pictures.

Mixed feelings.

I love the pop of red in her accessories. Fantastic touch.

I actually quite like the print of the dress. And I like the belt area, break in white

But I agree on the 70's secretary pool comment. And I don't like the white bands around the wrists and bottom. Too much. Better just at waist.

What a pretty dress, just gorgeous on her. I love the pop of red, the shoes are so cute and really go with the dress. There is nothing old looking about this dress, she looks like a *lady* and today day and age, so few look that way. Perfect way to walk about Catherine!

The Duchess of Cambridge at the Robin Hood Primary School today, November 29, in connection with a gardening project, so the outfit was perfect for that:

Although I'm tired of black. I do like her boot and she looks fine ...the outfit suits her.

She always looks good in casual, outdoor outfits. Those boots have trod in some interesting places and I guess as well as looking good they are very comfy and warm.
