In recent months eagle-eyed royal fashion fans will have noticed that Kate Middleton's new go-to outfit has been a look she's reached for ahead of plenty of recent outings - and it's actually pretty simple and easy to recreate. 

  • Kate Middleton has been cutting a chic figure with a new staple outfit for winter during recent appearances and her recent favorite look is a rather simplistic yet seriously classy combination of items you probably already have in your closet. 
  • The Princess of Wales has kept cozy throughout the chilly months with a series of looks made up of a long jumper dress, a turtle neck, a belted waist and a long-line coat. 
  • In other royal news, we just stumbled across this photo of King Charles with a full beard and to be quite honest, we're digging it.

Taking on her first solo royal engagement of the year, Kate Middleton commanded attention in bold orange bodycon look and tumbling curls as she paid a visit to Foxcubs nursery in Luton to meet with staff and little ones. 

The newly-appointed Princess of Wales teamed a cozy turtle neck jumper with a coordinating full-length skirt, cinching her waist with a simple black belt and layering up with a long camel coat. Bringing the look together Kate opted for a pair of black heeled boots and her favorite citrine pear drop earrings from the brand KiKi McDonough.

Kate's cashmere orange turtle neck is currently 40% off, originally price at £586. The silk-blended piece is the ultimate color block staple piece to add to a capsule wardrobe that needs a little more vibrance and is royally approved by the princess herself.

Kate Middleton's Epper midi skirt from Gabriela Hearst is designed for a body-hugging fit and also has 40% off right now, taking the price from £1,180 to £708. 

It appears that the formula of teaming a turtleneck jumper dress or the like with a belt and the sleek silhouette of a long coat has been Princess Catherine's winter uniform this time around - essentially meaning that all you need is three items from your closet to steal Kate's simplistic cold day style. 

The proud mom-of-three chose the go-to outfit when she stepped out for the first time with Prince William after her 41st birthday earlier this month, opting for a navy and tartan take on the look for a visit to Royal Liverpool University Hospital in Liverpool's Merseyside.

We've seen Kate replicate the same look in khaki green, as well as in an all neutral tone with camel and brown, seemingly taking tips from Meghan Markle in the immaculate color block outfit that she wore in Scarborough in November 2022.

Kate's new-found love of a figure-hugging dress teamed with a flowing coat and belt may stem from the desire to create simplicity in her busy life, having started a new chapter as the Princess of Wales following the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022. 

With plenty of royal engagements to attend as well as Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to raise with Prince William (reportedly using the 'Middleton model'), it's little wonder Kate is after some ease when it comes to getting dressed for work, while still living up to her reputation for being impeccably dressed!
