Kate Middleton recycled an old favorite on Wednesday — a bright red Carolina Herrera pea coat. This isn’t surprising considering the royal family’s penchant for wearing pea coats in all forms: cropped, long and flared.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore her Carolina Herrera version to visit the National Stadium in Belfast, Northern Ireland. She paired the coat with simple black tights and her signature L.K. Bennett black high-heeled booties.
Looking back over the years, chic pea coats have become an integral part of Kate’s and Meghan Markle‘s wardrobes. The two duchesses have sported luxury versions from Miu Miu and Mackage, in a range of colors and patterns. We’ve even found that Queen Elizabeth’s rainbow spectrum of dress coats include pea coats.
As you prepare for the transition between winter and spring, consider this royal favorite: bright and colorful pea coats. They feature all the attributes the ladies of Kensington Palace love — tailored silhouettes, belted waistlines, oversize collars and statement hues.
