Kate Middleton Just Wore Winter's Biggest Trend

editor@purewow.com (PureWow)

Kate Middleton has been taking more risks with fashion lately (like when she wore this deep yellow Erdem dress and repeat-wore this velvet hair bow). And while her latest sartorial choice isn’t exactly “risky,” it is right on trend. The duchess was just spotted rocking a cropped cardigan, aka the “it” sweater of winter, at Kensington Palace’s first Christmas party of the year. It’s not totally out of the norm for her to wear a cardigan, but it’s the way she wore it—fully buttoned from top to bottom—that’s turning heads. And it just so happens to make a perfect holiday piece for us mere mortals, too. Here are six cropped cardigans that will have you looking just as trendy as Kate.
