Kate Middleton is bringing back skinny jeans.

On Tuesday, Middleton and her husband Prince William paid a visit to Manor Farm in Durham, England. For the outing, Middleton kept it casual, wearing a pair of classic blue skinny jeans.

In recent months skinny jeans have taken a back seat to more relaxed silhouettes like wide-leg and flare jeans. However, Middleton just proved the style is as fresh as ever… with the right wardrobe pieces.

Middleton paired the pants with an olive green parka jacket, which she layered over a cozy sweater from Bora. Called the Supersoft Lambswool Fair Isle Jumper, the knit features long sleeves with a multi-colored design at the neck.

The style retails for $389 at the label’s website. Proving how versatile the top is, Middleton previously wore the sweater to the Royal Train Tour this past December.

As for footwear, Middleton continued the casual theme with a pair of knee-high boots from Penelope Chilvers — a brand she frequently wears. Called the Long Tassel Boot, the brown leather shoes featured a rounded toe, a subtle lug-sole and a zip-up calf closure. The shoes come with a $574 price tag at the label’s website. You can never go wrong with a pair of leather knee-high flat boots. The silhouette is ideal for winter as it can be paired with denim and wool coats, but the shoe also works for summer with sun dresses.

When not in boots, Middleton’s casual footwear selections include sneakers from Adidas and Superga as well as flats from Zara and Marks & Spencer. For more dressed up occasions, Middleton can be seen in pointy pumps from Jimmy Choo, Stuart Weitzman, Emmy London and Gianvito Rossi.
