While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were busy introducing the world to Baby Sussex in Windsor, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were 250 miles away in Wales, paying a visit to the Caernarfon Coastguard Search and Rescue Helicopter Base. For the occasion, Kate slipped into a smart-casual look that’s become something of a trademark of hers.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen Kate step out in this double-breasted Philosophy di Lorenzo blazer; in fact, she loves the classic piece so much she also owns it in blue. When she slips into this old favorite, she invariably teams it with a black turtleneck, a pair of black skinny jeans, and matching suede boots for a sleek look. Back in 2017, when she wore this look to visit an air cadet center, she chose a pair of low block-heeled boots. This time around, the duchess added some extra height in knee-high boots with a much higher heel, finishing the look with her Aspinal of London Mayfair Bag. Take a closer look for yourself ahead, and see why the duchess is so enamored with this wardrobe staple.
