We all know the Duchess of Cambridge loves to mix high end with high street and Hobbs is one of her go-to brands for more affordable fashion picks.

And lucky for us, the Hobbs Black Friday sale has started and it’s a pretty decent one with 25% off everything.

One thing we’ll be adding to our cart is the beautiful Bianca Wool Blend Military Coat.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a navy version of the military style coat back in February this year during a series of royal engagement in south Wales.

Of course, like everything she wears, the coat immediately sold out but Hobbs have the same style in black, which is now in their Black Friday sale.

You can snap up the chic cover-up for £261.75, reduced from £349, saving a massive £87.25.

The Duchess of Cambridge teamed hers with a pop of colour, adding a cute heart-print scarf and a red clutch. She also wore a bold red dress underneath and finished this oh-so-chic look with some black slouchy boots.

The black version is just as versatile too and will work with anything from printed dresses to layering over your favourite jeans and jumper for a weekend look that really packs a punch.

Beautifully tailored, cut to a maxi length with snazzy gold buttons for an extra luxe touch, this classic double breasted coat is a worthy investment. Made from a wool-blend and fully lined it will keep you toasty through one winter to the next. Its timeless style will really last from years to come.

And if the Duchess of Cambridge approves then so do we!

Race you to the checkout.
