The Duchess of Cambridge’s Zara jumper is under £20

Everyone needs a good roll neck jumper in their working wardrobe – even the Duchess of Cambridge. And, like us mere mortals, it seems Kate heads to Zara to stock up on her essentials, as demonstrated by the £19.99 jumper she wore recently.

The Duchess visited London’s Foundling Museum alongside Prince William wearing a chic outfit that comprised of a fitted Zara roll neck, which she tucked into a pair of Jigsaw trousers she’s worn on several outings before.

The jumper, which features a subtle split at the wrist, is currently available from Zara in four colours. The black and cream options are brilliantly versatile, although we also love the pretty grey-blue colour too.

If you’re looking for some wide-leg trousers similar to the Duchess’s, then this kick hem pair are a great option – like her pair, they are from Jigsaw (Lovethesales reports an 150% rise in online searches for ‘Jigsaw trousers’ following Kate’s appearance).

Sadly for us, Kate’s Accessorize earrings – which saw a 242% jump in searches after her outing – are sold out. We expect the jumper will quickly go the same way too!

A black roll neck is the perfect layering piece for your winter wardrobe. Below, YOU’s Fashion Stylist Joanne Toolan shows us three ways to style this simple, elegant piece…
