Kate Middleton's latest fashion lesson might just be her best one yet. When she stepped out for a visit at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in London, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a bespoke Jenny Packham coat over a matching dress, which she accessorized with a clutch, Jimmy Choo pumps, and sapphire jewels. While we're used to seeing Kate wearing blue — it is her power color after all — we'd never realized that there's an ingenious reason behind her gorgeous pregnancy outfits.
As her baby bump starts to grow, the duchess generally turns to tailored coats and floaty dresses, and it all makes perfect sense: the fitted outerwear allows her to look incredibly stylish, while the dresses mean that she can stay comfortable during her official visits. It's a simple yet totally brilliant trick that makes all the difference! Ahead, get a closer look at her outfit, then shop similar pieces for yourself.
