It’s fair to say that Kate Middleton is always sporting an enviable outfit, but lucky for us her sartorial picks often come from the British high street.
You might remember one such high street look the duchess wore back in September last year, when she visited RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire and looked stunning in a sharp beige blazer, styled over a plain white top and teamed with navy tailored wide-leg trousers from Jigsaw.
Kate accessorized her outfit with a matching beige handbag and dainty gold earrings, which were from small Irish brand, All The Falling Stars.
The blazer was from British high street brand Reiss, and it’s called the Larsson blazer. Offering ‘tailored simplicity’, the double-breasted design in a twill weave features wide peak lapels and tortoiseshell buttons for a formal look.
Despite costing, £285, that well-known ‘Kate effect’ caused the Reiss blazer to sell out fast, leaving many disappointed that they weren’t able to replicate the royal’s impeccable style. Until now, anyway, as Reiss has just brought the blazer back into stock – and it’s still available in all sizes online.
Considering how fast it sold out before, we wouldn’t be surprised if the same thing happens again, so we’d suggest moving fast if you fancy nabbing it for yourself.
It might not be the cheapest thing Kate has ever worn, but it’s also by no means the most expensive and the Reiss blazer does offer a classic, tailored look that is timeless. We can imagine pairing this with colourful blouses for a high-impact, high-fashion look, as well as teaming it with neutral tones for a pared-back aesthetic à la Kate.
