An outfit so nice, the Duchess of Cambridge wore it twice! Looking good while doing good is certainly a trend for Kate, and her latest outfit is no exception. Yesterday she stepped out with Prince William in a patterned Orla Kiely coat-dress to visit the London offices of Only Connect (left), a crime prevention charity and positive community helping prisoners, ex-offenders and those at risk of getting into trouble to rebuild their lives. But this wasn’t the first time the coat has made a royal appearance. In February 2012, Kate wore the exact same ensemble when she visited a school in a disadvantaged area of Oxford to support the Art Room (right), an organization that teaches kids self-esteem and confidence through art. The Duchess paired her bird-printed outerwear with brown tights, Aquatalia ankle boots and an Emmy clutch for each occasion — the only difference between the two looks is her now slightly lighter locks! “I thought she looked really well,” designer Orla Kiely previously told InStyle of Kate’s first time wearing the coat-dress. “It was out of the blue! It’s all quite nice, and now we’re crossing the generations which I think is a lovely thing.” Repeat or not, we’re loving Kate in this perfect fall look!
