Just as we are embracing a return to getting out and about now that lockdown restrictions have significantly eased, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridger are relishing getting back out conducting engagements and meeting people too.
The Duke and Duchess have been particularly busy of late with the couple currently visiting Scotland. As ever, Kate’s outfit choices for the tour have been impeccable but one outfit, in particular, caught our eye this week.
On Monday, the Cambridge’s attended a variety of engagements, including a visit to the Scottish Violence Reduction Unit, the cafe kitchen at the Palace of Holyroodhouse and Turning Point Scotland. For the jam-packed day of events, and Kate’s first official day on the tour, the Duchess opted for a stunning tonal ensemble in cobalt blue, a homage to the Scottish flag.
Comprising of a pleated midi skirt and double-breasted blazer, you’ll be very pleased to know that both pieces are under £100. While the blazer is from Zara, it’s one we’ve seen the royal in before and has long since sold out, however, it’s the blue skirt that Kate Middleton wore that we’re really interested in, as this is currently available for pre-order.
From Hope Fashion, the sateen skirt is made in Italy and features sharp knife-pleats and a contrasting asymmetrical hemline in sheer Georgette. At just £95, this is a perfectly affordable way to get a slice of royally-approved style and the pre-order system means everyone has a chance of getting hold of it.
We love the tonal look Kate Middleton went for with her blue skirt, but it would look just as good teamed with a contrasting white or cream blouse; alternatively, you could go for a colour-block effect and pair your Kate Middleton skirt with an equally bright complementary hue, such as peach.
