Apologies in advance for the royal pun here, but Kate Middleton is undoubtedly the queen of color. We can probably assume that she's following in the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth, who always wears bright colors so that she can be spotted in a crowd. Or maybe Middleton just likes color. Either way, she's been known to wear trendy colors right as they're gaining steam, and that was certainly the case today at the annual Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey.

This time, the buzzy color trend we're referring to (which happens to be quite pretty and flattering on everyone) is cobalt blue. We spotted the hue all over the F/W 22 runways of Dion Lee, Stella McCartney, Isabel Marant, and Off-White, to name a few. And lo and behold, we couldn't help but notice that Zara and Nordstrom are brimming with new cobalt pieces, as per usual when there's a new color trend brewing.

With that, scroll to channel Middleton and shop the best cobalt pieces from Zara and Nordstrom.
