Kate Middleton Made Some Serious Changes to Her Favorite Blue Suit
This might be Kate Middleton's best suit. It's a true blue, which is her power color, it's tweed, which is a fabric proven timeless, and it can be easily updated. But when Kate stepped out to visit the Ronald McDonald House Evelina to open its facilities to children being treated at the London hospital, she did not just switch her shoes or swap her diamond earrings.
Instead, Kate's Rebecca Taylor separates, which date back to 2012, were completely tweaked. There was no floral appliqué along the neckline, but a simple collar. The hemlines show a lot more distress too, though the blazer still features the same peplum shape. Whether the duchess took her coordinates to the tailor or was given a completely new set is unclear, but Kate definitely makes the case for keeping around the most sophisticated pieces in your wardrobe.
