Just as we were preparing to ditch all our skinny jeans in favor of wide-leg trousers, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle reminded us that the slim denim style is still relevant. Recently, Markle was spotted sporting skinny jeans while touring Morocco, wearing them not once, not twice, but three times, and Middleton stepped out in the wardrobe staple earlier this year while playing soccer with kids on a surprise trip to Northern Ireland.

Ahead, we're breaking down all the ways the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex have been wearing skinny jeans in 2019, from casual outings to formal appearances. Their tried-and-true outfit formulas make a compelling case for keeping the lean-leg denim style in your rotation this year (even despite our most recent trend forecast). Keep scrolling to find out how to steal their style, and while you're at it, shop their looks too.
