Sometimes just the simplest of things can make an outfit, and the Duchess of Cambridge knows it.
Yesterday, she travelled to Leicester with Prince William to pay respect to the helicopter crash victims, and wore a great coat dress for the occasion, which she accessorised with a black patent faux croc handbag by Aspinal.
But the detail that really caught our attention was the lovely black velvet bow she wore in her ponytail, which was reminiscent of the Simone Rocha AW18 catwalk looks.
It was sombre, simple, and made her otherwise classic ponytail looks super lush and elevated. It’s such an easy win, and the bow will look great with any outfit, including a sequin party dress for the festive season.
Kate also wore some cluster pearl earrings – which she’s previously worn on several occasions – and that added to the overall heritage effect.
Needless to say, we’ll be buying bows by the bucket load.
