This might be Kate Middleton’s best suit style. It’s a true blue, which is her power color; it’s tweed, which is a fabric proven timeless; and it can be easily updated. But when Kate stepped out to visit the Ronald McDonald House Evelina to open its facilities to children being treated at the London hospital, she did not just switch her shoes or swap her diamond earrings.
Instead, Kate’s Rebecca Taylor separates were slightly different than the ones she wore in 2012. There was no floral appliqué along the neckline, but a simple collar. The hemlines show a lot more distress too, though the blazer still features the same peplum shape. The duchess’s coordinates are from the brand’s Spring 2016 collection, so it turns out she scooped up a completely new set. Even so, Kate makes the case for sticking with the most sophisticated pieces in your wardrobe.
