The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for official duties on Remembrance Day in probably the most severe, most somber, most militaristic outfit she’s ever worn. For this much more intimate, family-focused form of remembrance, she course-corrected wildly; winding up in what may be the most twee thing she’s ever worn.
Hmm. It’s kind of hard to make white satin blouse look particularly fresh, but adding a black scalloped Peter Pan collar is definitely not going to give it a more modern or stylish feel. We’ll be blunt (as if we could be anything else): we hate this blouse. The poppy, while perfectly acceptable and expected for the occasion, actually makes the tweeness of the design look all the worse. The starkness and the shine manage to do something her outfit choices rarely ever do: overwhelm her. It’s too distracting.
