Kate Middleton is the queen of recycling fashion, and we love her for it. The Duchess of Cambridge never bows out from re-wearing designer duds for royal outings and does so in the chicest manner.
Case in point, the pale mint blue dress she donned on Tuesday for the Royal Air Force 100 ceremony in London. Look familiar? It should, as it’s the same Alexander McQueen design she wore three times before in a creamy white shade for Prince Harry’s and Meghan Markle’s wedding in May, Trooping the Colour in 2017 and Princess Charlotte’s christening in 2015. Although this version is a different color with shorter sleeves, the V-neckline, folded lapels and coat silhouette are basically identical.
Middleton has definitely found her signature piece, proving one can wear a tried-and-true staple over and over again. The V-neckline and structured shoulders never fail to look elegant and timeless on the mom of three.
Markle is another royal who’s found her go-to wares. The former Suits star has a penchant for bateau designs as she has donned the flattering open neckline on numerous occasions from various designers, including Dior for the Royal Air Force 100 service, Ralph Lauren at Prince Louis’ christening, Prada during the Queen’s Young Leaders Reception and of course Givenchy on her wedding day.
Both women have found the style that works for them, which is encouraging us to find our own that we can always count on.
