We love a good oversized checked coat as much as the next person – and it seems that person is the Duchess of Cambridge. On a recent visit to the University of Derby, where the royal chatted with students about how the ongoing pandemic has affected their university learning and their mental health, Kate wore a gorgeous checked wool coat that we’ve been lusting after ever since we saw her in it earlier this week.
It turns out Kate Middleton’s checked coat is from high-end high street brand Massimo Dutti. With a £249 price tag, it’s not the most purse-friendly item we’ve seen Kate in over the years, but if you’re looking for a classic investment coat that will last you for years and years to come, this is it. Even better, it’s still in stock online – but not for long probably, so we suggest adding it to your online basket quick to avoid disappointment.
Kate teamed hers with a pale blue cashmere sweater, which also looks to be from Massimo Dutti, a pair of tailored dark grey trousers and black suede block heels. Finishing off her look was a floral face mask, her engraved All The Falling Stars necklace (which has a super sentimental meaning behind it) and the matching earrings, both of which we’ve seen the Duchess in before.
It’s a perfect autumnal look. If you’d like to copy Kate Middleton’s style, but don’t fancy the £249 price tag, we’ve tracked down 7 similar style check coats at lower price points that you can shop now, including the coat with the Holly Willoughby seal of approval.
