I like the cut of the shirt dress and again the Duchess wears it perfectly but I am a fan of the colour, a bit dull in my opinion.

1- Kate wore it for the first time on 21st February 2012 to visit a school in Oxford where one of the charities she supports runs classes for children with behavioural problems.
