Time Stands Still: 3 Outfits Kate Middleton Has Been Wearing Since 2012
November 28, 2018 16:13 By Fabiosa
The Duchess of Cambridge has always been notoriously thrifty as she often recycles her looks. Some clothes she initially buys in two shades so as to have the best of two worlds – to sport a new image and to enjoy the comfort of wearing something familiar. Also, her wardrobe contains items that she has been wearing since 2012! And it must be said they look no worse than back then. Let’s focus on two such outfits.
1. A burgundy skirted suit by Paule Ka
Kate wore this charming ensemble for the first time in October 2012. Back then, she chose to wear her hair loose. Black tights and shoes to match complemented her look.
And in 2018, Kate decided that "old" is the new "new" and almost completely recreated her look, with the exception of a turtleneck and gathered hair. But the suit, tights, and shoes looked identical.
2. An evening turquoise dress by Jenny Packham
In May 2012, the Duchess first flaunted this gorgeous dress. She also wore an evening hairstyle and a clutch to match the dress, creating a monochrome image.
In 2018, the Duchess chose to let her hair loose, but the clutch again perfectly matched the shade of the dress. In both cases, the Duchess looked stunning!
3. An Emilia Wickstead dress (of a different color)
The Duchess wore this gorgeous dress in pale pink back in 2012 and later purchased a turquoise one. Her recent outing again reminded us of this wonderful outfit. Don’t be surprised if one day Kate will be spotted in the pink one again. The Duchess seems to be very prudent with her clothes and her figure gets only better!
As you can see, Kate Middleton has quite a few money-saving tricks up her sleeve. If she wasn’t so famous, no one would have noticed that she wore the same skirted suit 6 years ago. This is probably the best proof of her fame and influence in the world of fashion. Bravo, thrifty Kate!
