Kate Middleton may have worn a custom Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding gown to marry Prince William, but she’s a commoner at heart. She’s not afraid to shop at Zara frequently, nor is she afraid to wear her purchases over and over again. Just like, you know, most women do. We’re not so naive as to think that there isn’t some PR element to all of this–obviously these are lean times and Britons would probably be peeved if the Duchess walked around in a new Temperley gown and Cartier tiaras everyday (although we would really like it!). And yes, she’s dropped $2,000+ on outfits before and has a penchant for McQueen, which isn’t exactly sold at Whistles. But she will wear them until they’re rags, and we love her for it.
The Royal Family continued its Jubilee celebrations this week, and Kate Middleton stepped out in a Missoni coat yesterday that gave us deja vu, because yep! She wore it not that long ago. And a sidenote: The coat is from 2010 (Kate, because she is a thrifty lady, picked it up at an outlet shopping center), but if you’re interested in adding it to your collection of Kate Middleton looks, Grazia is reporting that M Missoni will re-release it this July for £670 ($1,040).
Anyway, we were inspired by this latest outfit repeat to try to figure out how many times she’s recycled outfits. So we did. And it’s a lot.
