March (and April, in many cases) are tricky seasons to navigate, wardrobe-wise. One day it could still feel like winter and the next it could feel like spring arrived overnight. While these weather surprises will certainly keep you on your toes, they don’t make outfit planning very easy. But if anyone can navigate this most awkward of seasons, it’s Kate Middleton. Proof: Middleton stepped out in London today to visit the Scouts’ headquarters wearing a fittingly casual black-skinny-jeans outfit. With the jeans, she wore her favourite pair of See by Chloé combat boots with a J.Crew sweater, utility jacket, simple silver hoops, and a striped scarf inspired by her visit.
So how can you apply Middleton’s look to your own wardrobe? Since it’s a bit early to bust out your warm-weather pieces but you’re probably over the puffer jackets, try layering a sweater and light jacket with your skinny jeans and lace-up boots until shorts-and-sandals season arrives.
