On a solo day trip to Luxembourg on royal business, Kate Middleton wore her standard fit-and-flare coat dress – with one striking point of difference.
The Emilia Wickstead coat dress she chose wasn’t black, or her favoured burgundy, or olive green, but a very pale powder blue.
She accessorised the outfit with her signature nude pumps, nude clutch and diamond jewellery.
Thanks to the unusual colour choice, her look felt fresh and polished, despite the fact she often wears very similar styles.
We’re taking it as inspiration for introducing pale shades to our winter wardrobe – think of it as a simple way to add instant lift to a predominantly dark outfit.
