When it comes to undertaking royal engagements, at this point, Kate Middleton knows what works style-wise. She’s a fan of simple but colorful outwear, often paired with basics underneath – that is, when she doesn’t let a statement dress do the talking all on its own.
Today, Kate and her husband Prince William visited with young people at a center in Northern Wales. Getting there involved a helicopter ride, so Kate had to go the no-nonsense route when it came to selecting her ensemble. She re-wore a gray Reiss coat she donned back in 2012 during a trip to see the Football Association’s National Football Center, and has owned since at least 2010; she reportedly picked up the piece for a good price when shopping at an outlet mall outside London many years ago. That style has since sold out – but we have a number of similar gray-green options below.
Kate paired the wool piece with her favorite black over-the-knee boots from Aquatalia, black pants, and a black turtleneck, with the overall effect looking sleek and polished. Her hairstyle was no-nonsense too, with everything pulled back into a neat ponytail.Share:
