She might be a duchess officially, but Kate Middleton will always be a princess in my eyes. Her latest appearance in Northern Ireland is about to give you major Cinderella vibes. Kate Middleton's powder blue coat dress makes her look like she stepped out of the pages of your favorite storybook from childhood.
There are moments when the duchess just looks so perfect it's like Disney brought her to life, and Thurs. was one of them. Middleton has been delivering a sufficient amount of style inspo over the past two days since she and Prince William touched down in Belfast for a surprise visit. After dazzling in a glittery green dress at the Empire Music Hall on Weds. night, the royal woke up Thurs. morning ready to give the people of Ballymena what they wanted: a look fit for a true princess.
She stunned in a light-blue cape coat buttoned all the way up like a dress. By British brand Mulberry, the jacket is belted at the waist, giving Middleton that classic A-line silhouette she loves.
Some say the layer is so Cinderella while others have been reminded of Fleur Delacour from the Harry Potter movies (the resemblance is actually quite strong). Either way, you can't deny that the duchess looks downright enchanting.
Middleton has been all about color lately. The day before Valentine's Day, she attended the 100 Women In Finance gala in a two-toned pink gown — which she paired with glitter heels by Oscar de la Renta — then she opted for a sparkly mint-green midi for her first night in Northern Ireland.
Judging by these bright looks, the duchess is craving warmer weather and this statement coat is the perfect layer for spring. The dreamy number spoke for itself, paired with subtle navy suede pumps by Rupert Sanderson, a matching Jimmy Choo clutch, and sapphire earrings.
Why not channel the duchess by adding powder blue to your own closet? Ahead, a few wardrobe staples in the Middleton-approved hue.
