Today the Duchess of Cambridge attended the easter service with the Royal Family despite the fact that she is officially on maternity leave, which was a nice surprise. Kate was in a few old favourites today.
Kate wore a chocolate brown coat from designer Catherine Walker. She has worn her this coat previously for St Patrick’s day when she was pregnant with Princess Charlotte in 2015. The coat is a bespoke piece with pointed collar wide lapels, hidden button closures and box pleated a-line skirt. Below we show a few similar Catherine Walker Designs.
She re-wore her Lock and Co ‘Betty Boop’ hat in chocolate felt. This hat is a slight variation on a typically pillbox style hat. It features a large bow on one side of the hat with weaving in the centre of the bow and is worn titled to one side of the head, with the bow angled downward.
You could style this Pillbox hat with the bow titling toward the nape of the neck, though this would depend on our face shape and hairstyle if it were to work. We show the hat in grey felt.
Catherine wore her lower-heeled Gianvito Rossi ’85’ Praline suede pumps, retailing for £495. You are still able to purchase these heels here. These suede pumps are a great replacement of the nude LK Bennett ‘Sledge’ pumps that Kate used to favour with many of her outfits. The blush suede is elegant and able to be paired with many outfits.
You can get a great repli-kate of these pumps here.
Kate matched her heels with her Loeffler Randall tab blush lizard-effect leather clutch. This is a simple rectangular clutch with flap and metal closure and has a lizard-effect texture. You can buy a similar Loeffler Randall clutch here.
The Duchess accessorised with her Balenciaga ‘Eugenia’ Pearl Clip Earrings, which originally retailed for £530. These are some of my favourite earrings that Kate owns. The oversize faux pearl is surrounded by a halo of crystals and set in silver with a hinge clip closure. These earrings are sold out, though you can still view them here.
She also wore her UFO Pearl Brooch, which we have seen on a few occasions before, including in Belgium. It is believed the brooch may be part of the same set as Kate’s pearl drop necklace she debuted on her tour of Paris with her black tweed McQueen dress. The brooch has two rows with three Mabe pearls in the top row and two in the bottom row.
Stylist note: Mabe pearls are also referred to as blister pearls and are half or semi-spherical in shape. They are made by being cultivated on the inside of a mollusc’s shell.
We liked The Duchess of Cambridge’s easter look, perhaps hinting at easter eggs with her palette choice? 😉
