Kate Middleton's Best Sweater Outfits, Ranked by 8 Superlatives

Not many people would turn down the chance to raid Kate Middleton's closet. The Duchess of Cambridge has quite the enviable wardrobe, including her famous Alexander McQueen wedding dress, various pieces of jewelry from Princess Diana, tiaras from Queen Elizabeth, and the list goes on. But not every enviable outfit is quite so fancy.

In fact, I most look forward to her casual looks because they are representations of her real-life personal style. Today, I'm focusing on one item, in particular: sweaters. She has worn cardigans with midi skirts, cable knits with skinny jeans, boleros with dresses, and turtlenecks with army jackets—just to name a few of her favorite combos. Scroll down to shop my favorite Kate Middleton sweater outfits ranked by fashion superlatives.

Army jackets are as functional as they are chic.

Black skinny jeans can form the foundation of a million different outfits.

Flat lace-up boots are one of the smartest investments if you ask me.
