The Colours in The Duchess of Cambridge's Coat Don't Say "Autumn" at All
This is how the duchess of Cambridge keeps things flashy and fun in the Autumn: she debuts new silhouettes that are heavy enough for the transitional season — say, a checked jacket like this Erdem number — but her outfits are somewhat unexpected. Instead of opting for darker plaid (she's got an old Alexander McQueen coat to achieve that look), Kate mixed lighter tones when she stepped out in Manchester.
Her bespoke tailored piece was brushed with pastel pink and cornflower blue, and those colours aren't exactly Wintry. Nevertheless, we're sure Kate will continue to pull out the design each year when the season turns. After all, when Kate finds a solid look, she sticks with it. Read on to see her fully accessorised with Rupert Sanderson navy pumps and Oscar de la Renta pearls, then shop coats that feel equally fresh.
