One would never really describe Kate Middleton’s style as divisive or challenging. She is the Pied Piper of classic. She is the leader when it comes to lovely dresses and delightful coats. More often than not, she plays it safe in her favourite pumps and beloved trinket jewellery. It’s all par for the royal course, we know, but every now and then, the Duchess of Cambridge goes through a more daring streak, and when it happens, you can be sure that our editors become available to pore over every detail.
Hot on the heels of a rather “wow” appearance last night for the premiere of the latest Bond movie, No Time to Die, the DoC followed up her stellar golden caped gown from Jenny Packham with another British designer today. Choosing a vibrant purple trouser suit from Emilia Wickstead was an inspired and rather bold move into autumn territory. Not only are punchy colours a big presence for the new season, but purple is known for being the most controversial hue of them all. Some love purple; others feel a deep hatred towards it. Seeing it on K-Mids, I feel rather charmed by the idea.
