  3. Love it! Perfect for a Christmas Party. I love the cardigan, the buttons reflect the white colour of the skirt. Both fit her as a glove.
    I also love to see that they obviously enjoy it to mingle under guests, chatting, laughing, etc. They look very down-to-earth. Lovely couple!!

  4. Christmasy for sure. But also a bit frumpy-looking. To make it a bit sleeker, an all-black top without that row of buttons had been better. And I would have kept the belt of the original design, in order to hide the non-matching waistlines of top and skirt.

    1. Well, I admit that I have been looking at the boots, thinking that perhaps, black pumps and a black tights instead, could have styled the look a bit better.

  7. Wonderful look for Catherine! I do love plaid at this time of year. The skirt fits perfectly and the boots are repeat favorites.

  8. I really don't like the skirt it looks odd to me. But the happiness comes through the photos.

  9. I preferred Mary’s outfit to Catherine’s. Same idea: tartan skirt with black top, but imo Mary looked much better. There’s a lot going on with that skirt from Wickstead. The one from McQueen looked more elegant and didn’t have so many competing design elements (between bright tartan with dense print and narrow pleats and the midi length - too busy for my taste). Mary’s skirt was a pleasure to look at, meanwhile Catherine’s is confusing between so many ‘features’. But she (Catherine) does look happy and genuinely carrying and in the end that’s what matters.

    1. Jill, I agree. Mary’s skirt looked better. Catherine’s torso is too long for this look. However she seems sweet and relaxed with the guests, I’m sure they appreciated her grace.

    2. I think Mary's outfit was a bit better due to the jacket. If Catherine's sweater were just a couple of inches longer, it would be much better and the proportions would look better to me. I do, however, think this skirt is very pretty and Catherine can pull of the longer length since she is so tall. Love the boots with it!!

    3. I agree! The cashmere sweater looks like it shrunk! A longer top or jacket would have looked fabulous.

  10. I'll take Kate's tartan any day. I suppose to each his/her own?

    1. I agree. I love this skirt, and the boots give it a more youthful and casual look. Yes, the sweater could have been a little longer.

  11. Timeless tartan skirt, nevertheless fashionable and black leather boots and black cardigan meet casual atmosphere.

  12. Catherine looks wonderful as she nearly always does...however. I'm with those who would prefer a slightly different top for this outfit. The black is great, but I think a blouse with a somewhat full sleeve -- and without the row of buttons down the front! -- would have been better with the skirt. (Love this length of skirt with the boots, btw!)

  13. Nice and seasonal - love the tartan. Personally, I think the cardigan needs to be longer because at the moment her torso looks very elongated.

    1. I thought so as well. I don't think it would have been necessary to wear a different kind of longsleeve or top. If the cardigan had been just a bit longer, it would have looked even better.

  14. Love both of their outfits. Bit if I could wish for one thing it would be for the cardigan to add on 10 cm, otherwise perfect. Daniel, look and learn on how to dress casually for an event!
