Wearing head-to-toe gray is trending, this we know. But when Princess Beatrice paired a Zara vest ($36) with a gray wool skirt (also from Zara, but since sold out) to attend a Valentine’s lunch earlier this month at the Ivy in London, we felt inspired. We also couldn’t help but notice the similarities to a look worn by Kate Middleton just last fall.

Even better news: Intentional or not, we love how closely Bea’s luncheon look mirrors one worn by Kate to an engagement in honor of Ukraine at the Vsi Razom Community Hub last fall. Was Beatrice nodding to the Princess of Wales, who is currently out of commission and recuperating from abdominal surgery until after Easter? Perhaps. Regardless—like Kate—she’s certainly giving us a style lesson on the sartorial power of head-to-toe gray.

It’s not the same skirt worn by Bea, but it’s a pretty close (and still just as chic) match.
Voluminous sleeves FTW.
