Kate Middleton’s coat game is seriously next-level! The 39-year-old Duchess of Cambridge is no stranger to debuting stunning new designs, as well as recycling her favorites. (See, even the royals are just like Us!)
Now that the temperatures are dropping, we’re looking to upgrade our coat closet. As it turns out, there’s no need to look any further than Middleton herself. From laid-back army jackets to seriously sleek reefers, the royal knows what’s what when it comes to stylish outwear of all kinds.
It’s no secret that the mom of three loves a coat dress, but she also doesn’t skip out on the chance to amp up any look with an extra chic piece to keep warm. The duchess seemingly owns a coat in nearly every color of the rainbow and appears to have a special affinity for the color red.
One of Stylish’s all-time favorites is the checkered Massimo Dutti coat she wore during a visit with students at the University of Derby on October 6, 2020. She paired the stylish number with a cashmere sweater from the same designer and it was truly a fall-perfect ensemble. Sadly, it’s no longer available, but you may be able to scoop it up on a resale site. (For context, it previously retailed for $349).
Notably, a go-to favorite designer of the royal’s is Catherine Walker. In 2018 alone, she wore two coats by the London-based label. First, during a tour of Sweden at the start of the year, she dazzled in a red houndstooth number. Then for Christmas Day church service, the duchess donned yet another red festive double-breasted design.
As much as we love Middleton’s ultra sophisticated coats, her pared down outwear is also worth obsessing over. On a trip to Ireland back in March of 2020, she visited a farm looking totally cool and casual in a Dubarry’s Friel utility jacket, which she paired with skinny jeans and her favorite Russell and Bromley riding boots. The low-key outfit proved that she doesn’t need a fabulous wool coat to look like royalty.
