We love being blessed with multiple Kate Middleton sightings in one week. After stepping out in jeggings and hiking boots yesterday, Middleton is back to her fancy ways. For a visit to London's Royal Opera House this morning, the duchess wore a magenta Oscar de la Renta suit with tights and black patent leather Rupert Sanderson pumps.
Middleton's bag for the occasion caught our attention: a black croc Aspinal of London mini bag (which looks as good from the back as it does from the front). She's carried this top-handle bag in the past, but with the popularity of the croc bag trend, it's more of the moment than ever. In fact, our Instagram feeds are flooded with faux-croc mini bags; the trend is so classic and expensive-looking that we hope it's here to stay. If Kate Middleton has anything to do with it, it will.
Keep scrolling to see the croc bag trend on Middleton and on Instagram and shop the best styles on the market.
