The Duchess of Cambridge Just Wore Her Go-To Wedding Guest Dress to a Garden Party
You know Kate Middleton repeats her outfits often, but if there ever was proof you can repurpose a superspecial look, this is it. The duchess stepped out for the Secretary of State's annual Garden party at Hillsborough Castle in Ireland wearing a jacquard coat dress. The Day Birger et Mikkelsen design might look familiar because Kate's worn it to not one, but three wedding ceremonies. And each time she slipped into the pale yellow number, complete with a paisley-print texture and pockets, she's styled it with a standout hat.
While Kate chose a disc-like design for Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall's nuptials in 2011, she worked a feathered fascinator back in 2006, when Laura Parker Bowles wed Harry Lopes. Read on to see Kate's new accoutrements, including gold jewelled earrings, taupe pumps, a clover pin, and a rose cap, then see Kate's older fashion moments in the Summer-appropriate look.
