Kate Middleton has a knack for finding incredible pieces, be it a Zara blazer or an Alexander McQueen coat dress, and styling them in new ways again and again. But of all the items she wears on repeat, it’s her coat collection that I find especially impressive.
The Princess of Wales’s latest outerwear sighting arrived earlier this week when she visited a nursery in Luton, England, as part of her work helping with children’s development in the UK. For the occasion, she wore an orange turtleneck-and-skirt set from Gabriela Hearst, topped with a tailored camel coat from Zara’s luxury big-sister brand, Massimo Dutti. According to the blog Kate Middleton Style, she’s worn it a total of five times in the last three years. Middleton polished off the classic look by adding chocolate-brown suede boots from Gianvito Rossi, a matching Stuart Weitzman clutch, and a croc-effect belt from Polo Ralph Lauren. Though altogether stunning, her Massimo Dutti coat was the clear winner of the ensemble.
Given its long tenure in the princess’s wardrobe, her exact coat from the Spanish brand is no longer available. A slightly drapier alt for the camel style, however, is. Shop it and more timeless and chic camel coats below.
