How Kate Middleton Styles Skinny Jeans and Flats for a Rare Day Off

We're used to seeing Kate Middleton's polished presence at all kinds of events, from service at Westminster Abbey with Meghan Markle on Monday to playing sports with kids on her royal tour of Ireland last week. She's definitely known to dress down for more casual events, but we rarely get to see what she wears when she's truly off-duty. We're talking no itinerary to follow and no press releases from the palace. Naturally then, when she is photographed on a day off, we're all the more curious. 

The Duchess of Cambridge was just snapped in London on a shopping trip at a book store. She wore a supremely relatable combo of skinny jeans and flats, but she also threw in some of her signature styling tricks: Match your accessories and go monochrome with your clothes. She chose a baby-blue Mulberry coat and a coordinating sweater along with a black Smythson crossbody bag and black loafers. Chic yet practical—just as we'd expect from Middleton. Scroll down to see Kate Middleton's day-off outfit, and shop the look.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
