Though on the surface berry shades may seem trickier to wear, once you have a few no-fail pieces to pair them with, you'll find yourself grabbing for them well throughout the Holiday season. That said, turn to Kate Middleton's blazer and trouser look for a little bit of inspiration, as she executed Fall 2019's color trend in such a smart way.

While attending Shout’s Crisis Volunteer event at the Troubadour White City Theatre, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a pair of slightly cropped pants from Joseph. Keeping the look polished, Middleton tackled the seemingly trickier shade by marrying the ankle-grazing trousers with a well-tailored black and white plaid blazer from Smythe that's reminiscent of similar styles she's been seen wearing by the brand. The Duchess kept it simple by layering the blazer over a white T-shirt, cinching the trouser with a black belt, and wearing a pair of classic pointy-toe black pumps. She completed the look with a set of delicate drop earrings and a matching necklace.

Taking a page from the Duchess' book of style, the key to successfully pulling off the berry color trend of the season is pairing it with smart wardrobe staples for an instantly polished look. Her pairing of the neutral, printed blazer with the berry-hued pant, makes for a versatile look that'll work just as nicely for the office as it will for a casual holiday gathering.
