i was actually expecting this navy McQueen to be worn at the Cadet Service Kate Mixes New McQueen and Old Favorites at Irish Guard Armed Forces Day Event - What Kate Wore

however if she had considered it - the size of the brooch would have been a deal breaker with all of those buttons. I think she chose wisely.

I am not a fan of that navy blue, the gold buttons are some where between busy and costumey. At least with the Irish guards she wouldn't have looked like she was mimicking them as their uniforms are red.

The broach wouldn't have fit, unless it was over top of the buttons on one side, the double breasted style calls for a much smaller broach.

What has Kate done to her eyebrows? She can't leave them alone! But critics say the results are unflattering - and ageing* | Daily Mail Online

I refuse to click on that misogynistic click bait. Frankly, I refuse to believe any woman in the world would do so. *shudders*

I actually hate the fashion for big drawn on eyebrows that are everywhere now. Some people ( I'm not saying Kate ) look like clowns.
As for Kate I have always thought she could cut back a bit with eye make up JMO

Don't mind the skirt but think it would look better in a pencil style, but not a fan of the top. And wish she would do something with her hair.

Huffington Post engagement - I love love LOVE the look today, with the white blouse and tweedish-skirt. Love it. And the hair looks so much better just that bit shorter.

Not a fan of the looks mismatched.

I think the look works well for the nature of the engagement - it also reminds me very much of her pre-engagement days when she was either working for Jigsaw or her parents party business. This is the type of clothes she wore in those days.
I adore the skirt its cute and girly and works well with the blouse.
Agree about the hair is a royal mess at the minute - neither one length or the other and those bangs are annoying me. This whole look would have been perfect had she caught it back in an elegant ponytail, then the high neck blouse could have shone.
This is the stuff of fairytales

I love the look today too, and agree her hair looks much nicer now. I particularly liked the skirt

I can't decide over this new outift yet. I like it because she has tried something new, but I also don't like it as I think that an high-waist skirt matched with a shirt is more flattering on a curvy woman.

I'm on the fence about Catherine's latest outfit. It's not something I'd wear, but the skirt is elegant and the whole look suits her well overall. However, I do agree about her hair, it looks a little unkempt and 'in her face'.

I loved today's outfit. I also don't mind her hair. I like the new shorter cut and think the length really suits her.

It shows how much tastes vary! I think her hair looks lovely, but the outfit looks thrown together. Just my opinion.

I think Catherine looked fine today. The outfit was business-casual and in my opinion, worked for the engagement.
