We've always got our eyes locked on Kate Middleton's style, and although she's been sporting a lot of polka dot-heavy outfits lately, she just switched it up with a totally different pattern and a much more maritime look. Not to mention, the Duchess of Cambridge also pulled out a couple different hairstyles.

This past weekend, Middleton visited with two different groups: the 1851 Trust—a non-profit that focuses on sustainability, especially in sports—and the Great Britain SailGP Team. And due to the nautical nature of her trip, the duchess ensured her clothing fit the theme well.

For her visit, Middleton chose a Breton-striped, navy blue sweater from Endource (a staple that we've seen trending in Northern California as well). The naval-looking cashmere piece was paired with high-waisted, white linen shorts from Holland Cooper. And of course, Middleton went for her go-to sneakers, the white Superga Cotus, to round out the look.

While Middleton's outfit made us wanna take up sailing, we also noticed that she switched up her hair a bit for the visit.

At first, the duchess wore her locks down and parted to the side, but the very bottom of her tresses were styled in tight curls, a look that she hasn't rocked in a minute. More recently, the duchess has been keeping her hair straight, or going for more crimped waves.

Then, while hanging out with the 1851 Trust's Protect Our Future program, the duchess switched up her hair again by pulling it into a tight ponytail, and she changed her outfit by slipping into a wetsuit and Adidas tennis shoes.
