Carole Middleton emulated Kate's style during a recent outing as the stylish business woman shared images of her recent venture as she expands her brand internationally.


Carole Middleton's brand Pary Pieces has launched a new collaboration with American Supermarket, Shop Rite. To mark this retail partnership outside of the UK, Carole visited a New Jersey branch of the store and had a look at her collection in situ, met associates, and spoke to customers. 

Speaking about this new range, Carole, the founder of Party Pieces said, "It’s very exciting to see our Party Pieces Collection expanding into the U.S. starting with Saker ShopRites, a leading retailer in New Jersey and family-owned business with a long history of commitment to the customers and communities its stores serve. This is the culmination of great teamwork, and we’re happy to partner with Saker ShopRites for our initial launch."

While attending this opening, Carole wore a pair of black cigarette trousers, which she paired with a black and white checked cropped jacket. She also paired this look with a pair of black leather court shoes which perfectly complemented the ensemble.

The brand says about this jacket loved by Carole, 'crafted in Europe from Italian black and cream gingham tweed, it's a collarless, cropped style with long sleeves, fully-functioning pearl buttons, patch pockets, and a frayed trim.'

This was a stylish look that Carole's eldest daughter, The Princess of Wales, has often been photographed wearing during royal engagements. Princess Catherine often pairs chic jackets with matching slim-fit trousers and heels when she is trying to achieve a fashionable but semi-formal look.

Although Carole simply borrowed a styling tip from Catherine for this event, there have been other occasions when she has borrowed an entire look. 

Carole Middleton stunned in her daughter Kate Middleton's Me+Em dress for the opening of Royal Ascot 2022 as Carole was photographed in the same two-tone pink buttoned dress that's owned by her eldest daughter. While it is unclear if this was Kate's dress or whether Carole owns her own version, it is clear that this mother and daughter share the same taste in fashion as well as genetics!
