Kate Middleton just proved she is queen of the high-low mix. Today in London, during a visit to the city’s Natural History Museum, the Duchess of Cambridge looked dressed to kill.
She teamed a pair of $160 olive green culottes from British high-street label Jigsaw with a $50 eggplant-hued knit top from Warehouse, another British high-street stalwart.
However, her accessories told a different story. She wore $430 chunky heeled loafers by luxury Italian label Tod’s and carried a $3,660 top-handle purse by Chanel.
Both designer accessories came in a matching shade of Burgundy and perfectly complemented the autumnal colors of her outfit.
However, not only was the ensemble a lesson in the bourgeoise trend gaining ground for fall ’19, it was also a class act when it came to expensive dressing. They say it pays to splurge on footwear because swanky shoes always elevate the perceived cost of an outfit. Though, admittedly a bag also helps do the trick.
Last month Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex orchestrated a collaboration for the charity Smart Works, which featured a suit from Jigsaw.
Next week, the Duchess of Cambridge will embark on a tour of Pakistan with husband Prince William.
