Kate Middleton Wore a Vintage Chanel Blazer From the ’90s

Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, made a foray into the world of vintage earlier this year, opting for a series of preloved pieces while touring the Caribbean in March. But today the royal stepped out in what is arguably her best vintage look to date, in the form of a Chanel tweed jacket in cobalt blue that dates back to 1995.

You can’t go wrong with vintage Chanel. The princess teamed the double-breasted jacket, featuring black piping, with a pair of tailored black trousers and matching suede pumps for a visit to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Understated yet chic, it’s Kate’s working wardrobe at its best.

It turns out the princess is actually a long-standing vintage fan, with the royal debuting a red YSL jacket—which she’s had since her university days at St. Andrews—while departing Belize earlier this year. She followed up that look with a striped turquoise and coral dress from the ’50s, sourced from Willow Hilson Vintage, and a ’60s orange beaded handbag by Wayne Taylor while in Jamaica.

While Kate Middleton is known for repeating looks from her own wardrobe, it’s great to see her adding vintage (as well as sustainably minded brands) into the mix too. Long may it continue.
