That’s right, folks. Kate Middleton is back in the coatdress—but with a twist.
On November 21, the Princess of Wales rewore a bright red Catherine Walker coatdress, with its unmistakable statement bow closure at the front, which we’ve seen on her in 2021, per Elle. If it weren’t for the distinctive bow, I might not even have clocked this as the same dress, because for this occasion, the princess topped the dress with a dramatic Catherine Walker cape in exactly the same shade of red.
The princess completed her monochromatic look with a wide-brim hat, pointed-toe suede pumps, and a small clutch. A necklace was clearly unnecessary here, so Kate’s only jewelry was her engagement ring and her favorite sapphire and diamond heirloom earrings from Princess Diana’s collection.
Princess Catherine and Prince William joined King Charles and Queen Camilla to welcome President Yoon Suk Yeol of South Korea and his wife, Kim Keon Hee, in London, where they had arrived for a two-day state visit to the UK.
Though coatdresses have long been a mainstay of her wardrobe, lately Kate Middleton has instead been opting for bright pantsuits more often than not. But when it comes to formal occasions such as this, it’s always better to go with a classic.
