While on a video call alongside Prince William to mark Volunteers' Week in the U.K., the duchess turned to a pair of earrings she's worn before. She first wore the Accessorize "Twisted Circle Drop" earrings (which retail for just $12) for an evening reception in Dublin, Ireland in 2019, and they're still in stock. We assume for not much longer, though!
Kate Middleton has worn British retailer Boden too many times to count and often turns to the label for major family moments - including 2019's Christmas card (which she also wore this year for a zoom call). Boden also features regularly on the children of the royal family, appearing in the Sussex family's official card at the end of last year, with baby Archie taking centre stage dressed in a Mini Boden cashmere polar bear jumper.
When making an appearance at the Aga Khan Centre in Pakistan, Kate chose a pair of earrings from Pakistani retailer Zeen. The earrings, which matched her turquoise dress, retail for $10 - and the label features many other stunning designs fit for a royal.
When Kate isn't in her classic suede pumps or wedges, she's known to turn to classic Superga sneakers. Her favourite is the classic Cotu plimsolls, which she's worn with everything from jeans to wide-leg trousers, even turning to them for the Chelsea Flower show in 2019. This brand was also a favourite of Princess Diana.
& Other Stories
For a preview of the Chelsea Flower Show, alongside children Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte and Prince George, Kate opted for a floral midi dress from & Other Stories. While the dress has since sold out (of course) it also came in a shorter version, as well as in a button-up and skirt. The brand is known for creating elevated basics that transcend seasons, making it no surprise it's a favourite among the royal set.
Kate regularly turns to this American classic for her go-to winter pieces, including cashmere sweaters, coats, blazers and pants. Pictured below, the duchess wears just one of her many J. Crew pieces - the 'Isabel' mahogany wool jumper that has a flattering and fitted silhouette.
Just like us, the duchess can't refuse a haul from Zara. Kate is regularly spotted in finds from the retail giant - like the below dress she wore to one of Prince William's polo matches. It's not just for her off-duty wardrobe that the royal turns to this fashion favourite, opting to wear a floral midi dress to sister Pippa Middleton's wedding reception.
The Duchess of Cambridge has an affinity for British retailer Whistles (pictured below in 2011 wearing their best-selling Carrie skirt). In fact, some of the royals most memorable outfits have been from the label, like the burgundy chiffon dress she was photographed in during the unveiling of her first official portrait in 2013 or the polka-dot shirt style she wore to host BBC Radio One's Teen Hero Award finalists.
Kate was wearing Topshop long before she was a royal and has even been photographed shopping in-store, making it unsurprising she still wears it today. The duchess doesn't just turn to the brand for her casual attire though, opting for a polka-dotted design at a friends wedding while she was pregnant with Prince George.
Even while isolating at Amner Hall with her family, Kate's sartorial choices still have the power to sell out. Celebrating Britain's National Health Service (NHS) and all the medical staff who are working tirelessly during the coronavirus pandemic, the duchess wore a summery floral dress by Ghost, which was retailing for just $110. While the style has since sold out, the brand creates similar designs year-round.
