The Princess of Wales bundled up in the long crimson coat with stark black buttons, which she wore overtop a burgundy turtleneck that peeked past the collar of her outerwear. The royal wore a red poppy — to honor fallen soldiers — on the lapel of her jacket and accessorized with small gold and pearl hoops and her sapphire engagement ring, which once belonged to Princess Diana.

To complete her cold weather look, the Princess wore dark brown suede knee-high boots that disappeared past the hem of her coat. The design featured angular pointed toes and teetering stiletto heels, around 3 to four inches in height, for an elevated lift.

Knee-high boots are often worn with skirts, and the go-to style is a wise choice in the fall and winter.

Middleton is more typically seen in pointed-toe pumps from Emmy London, Jimmy Choo, and Stuart Weitzman, among other. Her go-to style is Gianvito Rossi’s 105 pumps, which she owns in five colors. In addition to her royal rotation of heels, the duchess also wears affordable sneakers from New Balance, Adidas, Superga, and Zara on and off duty.
