This weekend saw no shortage of Kate Middleton sightings, and we’re pleased to report that the Duchess’ latest appearances seem to have broken her streak of outfit repeats—while we don’t mind that Middleton has a few pieces on regular rotation, it’s nice to see her introduce new looks into the mix.
Most recently, Middleton was spotted today at the Order of the Garter Service wearing an Alexander McQueen coat dress and a hat by Jane Corbett. While the coat dress seems to be a style signature, we love the slightly more voluminous skirt seen here. This look may be a nod to the recent news that McQueen designer Sarah Burton is set to receive the Order of the British Empire as part of the Queen’s birthday celebrations.
Earlier this weekend, we also saw the Duchess at Queen Elizabeth’s Trooping the Colour ceremony, which is HRH’s official birthday celebration. Here, Middleton wore a (new) powder blue custom dress from Erdem with floral embroidery. The Duchess also donned a matching hat designed by milliner Jane Corbett, paired with earrings by Links of London, and an Alexander McQueen clutch. We’ve seen the Duchess in Erdem before, and we think the designer is the perfect fit for her aesthetic, bringing together her favourite ladylike silhouettes and elbow-length sleeves with modern floral prints.
