Kate Middleton Coat

The Duchess seriously loves to recycle her style — and that’s exactly what she did with her coat, just two months after she first debuted the high-fashion item that she scooped up from a secondhand store.

Kate Middleton, the Royal re-wearer, strikes yet AGAIN! This time the Duchess looked divine, when she stepped out in a M Missoni coat dress. While we’re always one of the first to point it out, we can’t blame her for wanting to re-wear this powder blue tweed coat that she was last seen wearing two short months ago.

On Mar. 1, the Duchess of Cambridge first debuted the coat when she stepped out with the Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall for a trip to London department store Fortnum & Mason. Kate accessorized with pumps by Rupert Sanderson and two sweet daffodils in honor of St. David’s Day.

For her most recent outing on Jun. 13, the thrifty princess switched up the look up by pairing the coat with a navy cocktail hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan and matching navy court shoes in place of her favorite nude pumps.

Kate doesn’t only get good use out of her high-fashion finds — she also is a bargain shopper! In fact, Kate purchased the blue coat at The Stock Exchange, a secondhand store in Berkshire near her family home.

Well she certainly seems to recycle her garments often, we can’t blame her for wanting to re-wear some of her great buys more than once! It really shows that even someone as royal as the Duchess of Cambridge can change up her accessories and recycle some of her outfits — and not be ashamed to do so! Regardless, you look as gorgeous as ever, Kate. The hat is a nice addition and it only looked better the second time!

What do you think of the princesses’ thrifty side?
