Kate Middleton Worked Monochromatic Magic During Latest Outing with Prince William

Whenever we want style inspiration, we need look no further than Kate Middleton, who is always providing us with a chic fashion template.

Following a break from official outings where they enjoyed time with their three kids, the Prince and Princess of Wales finally returned to their royal duties today, November 3. The pair took a trip to the town of Scarborough, where they met with various organizations to fundraise for the mental health of local youth.

While there, Princess Catherine sported a monochromatic look that certainly caught our attention.

In the past, we've pointed out that camel is one of the most flattering colors one can wear while embracing the monochromatic trend, and Princess Catherine clearly knows this well.

The royal sported the hue, while adding a few pops of darker brown to create dynamism within her look. As noted by the Kate Middleton Style Blog, the princess was seen in a Max & Co. longrun coat in camel over a matching dress (and although we're unsure about the exact design, here's a dupe from Elie Tahari).

To accessorize, Princess Catherine added a brown woven waist belt from Boden, leather heels from Ralph Lauren, twisted circle earrings in gold from Accessorize and a mini Nano Montreal bag from DeMellier London.

It's also important to note that the princess was donning a red poppy brooch on the lapel of her coat, which isn't unusual for this time of year.

It's officially November, which means Remembrance Day is right around the corner. Each year in the U.K., the holiday is celebrated on the second Sunday of the month, to honor the contributions of military and civilian personnel in the World Wars and later conflicts. The poppy acts a symbol of respect, and both the Prince and Princess of Wales included them in their 'fits.

We got another look at the princess's outfit on Instagram, embedded below, where we saw that she ditched the coat later in the day (but the outfit worked just as well).

“So so pleased to announce £345,000 of funding from The Royal Foundation and @tworidingscf, leaving a lasting legacy of support for young people's mental health here in Scarborough,” the caption read. “The young people we’ve had the pleasure of meeting today will play a key role ensuring this funding gets exactly where it needs to go and makes a difference to communities across Scarborough now and way into the future.”

Don't mind us while we try to craft a look as stylish as this one.
