Kate Middleton Just Wore an Easy French Outfit I Want to Re-Create This Week

Amongst her many other achievements, Catherine, Princess of Wales has amassed a loyal fanbase for her expertly tailored and ever-flattering outfit choices. This week she caught our attention once again for her effortlessly chic and very French styling of a knitted skirt set from Sézane. Visiting Nottingham Trent University to learn about its mental-health support facilities as part her World Mental Health Day engagements, the Princess styled a neatly fitting beige jumper with a co-ordinating knitted skirt from the French brand. Featuring five buttons that climb from the wrist to the forearm and a chic crew-neck cut, the jumper sat perfectly atop the matching midi skirt, and Middleton finished her look with beige court shoes.

A two-step trick that fashion editors use for a quick and perfectly pulled-together look, we've seen knitted skirt sets become more popular of late, with brands such as MangoCOS and now Sézane producing chic, quiet-luxury iterations. Wearing hers with pared-back, tonal accessories, Middleton opted for a top-handle beige bag and pearl drop earrings. She called upon her tried-and-true blowdry for soft waves.

This is one of our favourite looks to date from the Princess— an ensemble that focuses on excellent cuts, a comfortable finish and the no-fuss ease that French women call upon to set their looks apart from the rest.
