Kate Middleton Recycles a 12-Year-Old Coat With Skinny Jeans & Block-Heeled Booties in Ireland

Kate Middleton made the chicest case for recycling today as she visited Jigsaw, The National Centre for Youth Mental Health, in Dublin, as part of a royal tour of Ireland.

The Duchess of Cambridge sported a white Reiss coat, which actually predates her time as a royal. Kate is believed to have debuted the coat in 2008, three years before she married Prince William.

Underneath the coat, the University of St. Andrews alum sported a black-and-white polka-dot button-down blouse, also a piece she’s worn previously. The sold-out top comes from French label Equipment and was previously available on Net-a-Porter.com for $140. She teamed the blouse with a pair of black skinny jeans.

For footwear, Kate selected a pair of black ankle boots set on a block heel. The shoes featured a side zipper and appeared to be fabricated from suede. Royal watchers believe the duchess’s shoes are from Russell & Bromley, a brand she has chosen in the past.

The duchess completed her look with a pair of Daniella Draper earrings with shamrock charms, which appeared to be a new addition to her wardrobe.

When it comes to her typical shoe style, the Duchess of Cambridge often selects classic pumps, with go-to labels, such as Rupert Sanderson, Gianvito Rossi and Jimmy Choo. The mom of three also has some more affordable footwear in her rotation, such as Superga sneakers and Marks & Spencer trainers.

Below, consider these black ankle boots to create a look similar to the duchess’s.
