As you can see, her coat features a velvet trim on the collar, pockets, buttons and cuff, making it trendy and classic all at the same time. It’s also extremely figure-flattering—especially for a coat.
Although her sister-in-law Meghan Markle opted to sport an entirely new Emilia Wickstead frock for the Commonwealth Day service, Middleton went shopping in her own closet and selected something she already knows is a winning look.
At Sandringham, the mom of three donned a maroon velvet hatband that expertly matched her coat’s velvet trim. But today, she wore a crimson Sally-Ann Provan flowered fascinator with maroon leaves. The fascinator was a bit more of a statement piece than her other headware, but it totally worked. (Markle also got the bold topper note, apparently.)
Like the last time she wore her British-designed piece, K-Middy paired it with wine-colored Gianvito Rossi suede pumps ($695) and a matching velvet box clutch. She opted for jewel drop earrings this time instead of gold hoops and, since it’s a bit warmer this time of year, she forwent the gloves she wore at Sandringham.
Suffice it to say, this coat is made for royal engagements.
