Last year, Kate Middleton and Prince William visited St. Andrews in Scotland, as part of a mini royal tour. The location was significant, as it was where the pair first met and began their relationship way back in 2003.
The couple had a non-stop schedule, sailing across the sands one day and meeting with university students the next. And as ever, Kate’s wardrobe was anything but dull; in fact, she’s been pulling out all the stops – including a stunning £95 cobalt blue midi skirt.
One of her best looks was a casual but smart ensemble she rocked for a visit to the University of St. Andrews, which is where she and William first set eyes upon each other. The Duchess wore a nautical-themed outfit with a Breton striped top, longline blazer and some tailored trousers. And while some parts of the look came with a major price tag (such as the £549 blazer by British brand Holland Copper), Kate finished off the outfit with a high street kick.
Always one to give a nod to the high street, Kate’s white trainers were actually by Veja and you can still pick them up and get change from £100. From photos of the occasion, it appears that the Duchess is wearing a metallic pair of the classic white shoes, which you can shop online at Anthropologie, Matches and The White Company for £90.
The Duchess also sported the metallic Veja’s today (22 June 2021) at the National History Museum in London during an official engagement. Pairing the £90 trainers with a £1,795 Chloe blazer, she looked effortlessly chic.
If you fancy walking in Kate’s footsteps, however, there are plenty of other versions of the Kate Middleton Veja trainers available online. This week, Net A Porter even launched an up to 50 per cent off sale and we spotted a couple of similar styles from as little as £70.
