Kate Middleton Returned to a Favorite Look for a Children’s Hospital Visit
From shine and sparkle at night to blue tweed, an old stand-by.
Kate Middleton went from a sparkling head-to-toe Erdem dress on Monday night to a new tweed skirt suit Tuesday morning. Britain clearly has a Duchess that can do both: Glitz and pearls at night and muted textures for day. (“Both” in this case means festive conservative and work conservative.)
The Duchess has been on a skirt-suit streak for her day engagements of late, but the blue tweed by Rebecca Taylor is an especially familiar look. She wore a nearly carbon copy two-piece set by the same designer in 2012, and an M Missoni look-alike coat prior to that.
Her latest version is currently sold out, but five years ago, at what was likely still the height of Kate Effect on clothes, Rebecca Taylor reissued the suit after what was left of the inventory sold out completely (Vanity Fair has reached out to the brand to see if there are any plans to do so again in the works).
The occasion for the latest tweed suit was the opening of the Ronald McDonald House Evelina London, a place for families with children treated at the hospital to stay. She toured the facilities and unveiled a plaque. We’ll likely see the public engagement-appropriate suit again, as the Duchess often repeats her preferred looks, and blue tweed is clearly a favorite.
