This Is Officially the Coat Trend of Choice for Royals

There's nothing casual about throwing on a winter coat, especially when you're a royal whose every outfit is coordinated to perfection. Queen Letizia of Spain and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark were spotted wearing similar styles of wrap coats, which tend to be a favorite choice for more formal events and pair perfectly with skirts and dresses. 

Lately, we've spotted several wrap coats at a range of prices (some more affordable than others), but all are undeniably chic. Whether you opt for a lighter-weight wool or want to go all-in with a luxe cashmere component, there's a wrap coat out there for every budget, occasion, or climate. 

Keep scrolling to check out elegant wrap coats that are fit for a royal, but also affordable and stylish enough for everyday wear. We recommend sticking with lighter, neutral shades, but bolder colors beyond black and blue are great options too. As is the belt. Don't be shy about leaving it undone—particularly if you're wearing a fantastic outfit underneath.
