Kate Middleton Shows How to Wear Combat Boots With Skinny Jeans

Kate Middleton doesn’t get a chance to dress down much, but she knows how to pull off a casual look with the best of them.

The Duchess of Cambridge showed off her more laid-back style as she headed to the Scouts headquarters at London’s Gilwell Park today, wearing a cozy burgundy sweater — it appears to be a J.Crew top she’s worn before — with slim-fitting black skinny jeans and a cargo jacket.

Each year, the Park welcomes thousands of Scouts, schools and youth groups to develop their character skills, including taking the initiative and tenacity employability skills such as leadership, teamwork and problem solving; and practical skills like cooking and first aid.

For footwear, the University of St. Andrews alum chose See by Chloé’s Mozart combat boots, which are now sold out. The boots feature a rounded toe and stacked heel, with a heavy rubber sole and leather trim detailing.

The stylish royal stepped out in the same edgy boots for an engagement on Jan. 15, her first of 2019. Then, she teamed the style with a tweed Dubarry jacket and brown skinny jeans for a similarly dressed-down look.

AS she did in January, the mother of three today wore her brunette locks down. She accessorized for the occasion with a tricolored Scouts scarf.

Middleton herself was a Brownie, so it’s fitting that she spent her day with Scouts. They seemed pleased to meet the 37-year-old, who cheered for her and even brought her a bouquet of flowers.
