The Duchess of Cambridge Loves This Style of Coat so Much, She Keeps Buying It in Different Colours
After a fancy evening at the BAFTA Awards and a stylish afternoon amongst fashion's elite, the Duchess of Cambridge has resumed her royal duties. On Wednesday morning, Kate stepped out in Sunderland, to open an arts and music centre. For the occasion, she wore a custom, military-inspired Dolce & Gabbana coat over the Séraphine Phaedra dress (£159), and accessorised her outfit with a matching clutch, black gloves, tights, and a pair of suede Tod's pumps.
If this outfit looks familiar, it's because Kate sported a very similar style during the royal tour of Norway and Sweden. Of course, the duchess has worn quite a few outerwear pieces over the years, but as double-breasted coats seem to be a firm fashion favourite, seeing her invest in similar-looking pieces isn't really a surprise. After all, her future sister-in-law Meghan Markle does the same thing. Ahead, get a closer look at her full outfit, then shop similar pieces for yourself.
