Finding a Good Winter Coat Is Difficult, So Let Kate Do It For You
I like to think of myself as a bit of a coat aficionado. Having lived in the North East of Scotland—where the height of summer still calls for some sort of cover-up—for the first 21 years of my life, I’ve collected quite the assortment. I don’t mean to brag, but having good coats is just something I’m known for—so much so, my friends are constantly dropping hints to see if I have any hand-me-downs they can all first dibs on.
However, when I’m in need of some inspiration of my own, there’s one person to which I can always turn—Kate Middleton.
Perhaps she’s been swapping style notes with the Queen, who always wears statement outerwear to ensure she can be seen in a crowd or from long-distances by those travel for miles to see her. Irregardless, there’s no denying that Kate has found her sartorial calling.
So, which coat trends make the royal grade? I personally sifted through all of Kate Middleton’s coats to bring you an edit of her most fashionable looks. Naturally, seeing as she’s a master at rewearing old clothes, many of her coats are now out of stock but fret not, for I’ve found the next best thing in each scenario, often from the same brand she wore in the first place. No need to thank me—full credit goes to HRH.
