Carole Middleton's dark wash blue jeans with a raw hem and straight leg cut are a summer essential for her - and they particularly complement her glowing summer time tan. 

When it comes to finding a pair of the best jeans, it can be quite the mission. That's why when we find some we like, they can quickly become a key part of a capsule wardrobe and a trusty go-to for outfits all year round. 

The Princess of Wales's mother, Carole Middleton, is clearly the same. We've seen her sport various pairs of jeans over the years, although we mainly see her nailing smart-casual outfits for the likes of Wimbledon or adhering to royal dress codes for big family events. 

However, royal fashion fans have been given the chance to see how Carole styles her summer denim a few times, thanks to posts shared on the Instagram account for Party Pieces, Carole's former decorations business. 

Back in September 2021, a post shared on the account showed Carole looking radiant with a bronzed summer complexion, wearing a pair of dark wash blue jeans. 

The straight leg jeans featured a raw, ankle-grazing hem and a wide cut - and Carole proved she's an expert at putting together a comfy, casual outfit as she posed in a pair of lace-up blue plimsol trainers. 

Posing on a step ladder for the Party Pieces shoot, shot by photographer Liz Mcaulay, Carole looked cool in a simple camel-toned blouse, while a tan leather belt tied the look together. 

Channel Carole's Look

We saw Carole look fabulous in the same belt and jeans in another photograph shared on the Party Pieces page in October 2021. 

This time, she tried out the divisive double denim trend, teaming the rich blue jeans with a light wash button up denim shirt. Again, Carole's skin boasted a sun-kissed glow, although it's not clear whether she had been soaking up the rays on holiday or if she is partial to a layer of fake tan for mature skin

Either way, the bronzed look combined with the ultra summery combination of blue tones in the denim were the perfect backdrop for her brown leather belt with plaited detailing on the loops to make another appearance. 

We haven't seen Carole make many public appearances this year so far, but we hope we get the chance to see her stepping out in a pair of her go-to jeans as the weather warms up.
