I like the colour and the luxurious material of the dress, it also has a classic look. On the other hand it looks a bit short and in my opinion the bottom part looks too flimsy when worn.

1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore this shirt-dress on 16th January 2015 to visits the The Fostering Network when she was 6 months pregnant with Princess Charlotte.

This is a very summery and unpretentious dress that seems very comfortable. It may lack a bit of elegance for an official royal visit.

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.
