The Queen & Kate in Colorful Coats & Dresses

[ Edited ]

Do you wear bright color coats and dresses? 

 

I have owned a bright red coat in the past, but I sold it when it didn’t fit anymore. I currently own a bright blue rain slicker which “brightens” a rainy day. 

 

I owned a kelly green dress and a red dress in the past. They were very figure flattering on me, but when they no longer fit I got rid of them. The most colorful dresses I currently own are a few printed dresses in red, teal, and orange.

These lovely royals look terrific in all bright colors. They need to be always visible to their audience.

I do own a Susan Graver leopard print rain coat with red lining!!!

The only other really bright things I own are my summer sundresses, which I love.

They are so bright and pretty, perfect for warmer destination vacations, unfortunately I haven't been wearing them this summer........maybe I will put one one this weekend just for the heck of itSmiley Happy

To me, the blue outfit on Kate is just perfection!

I often am in awe of the tailoring.  Perfection.  

 

I have also seen a coat lining match the dress.  What planing.

Like the queen's outfits except the orange. It's a color I just hate for clothing.

Lovely colors, gorgeous fabrics, and styles that work for the very public, royal lives they lead.  Fun to see, nothing I want to own.

 

I did own full-length red coats long ago -  one for winter, one for rain; same in green.  But I can't remember the last time I wore a full-length coat of any color, not for warmth, for rain, nor for style.

The colors don't bother me although, personally, I shy away from head to toe bright colors such as these.  I've never been a fan of Kate's style so that's what bugs me the most.
