Kate Middleton’s Vintage Chanel Blazer Is a ’90s Classic
The Princess of Wales made a foray into the world of vintage earlier this year, opting for a series of pre-loved pieces during a Caribbean tour in March. But today the royal stepped out in arguably her best vintage look yet, in the form of a cobalt blue Chanel tweed jacket from 1995.
You can’t go wrong with vintage Chanel. The Princess teamed the double-breasted jacket, which features black piping, with black tailored trousers and matching suede pumps for a visit to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Understated yet chic, this is Kate’s work wardrobe at its best.
Turns out the princess is actually a lifelong fan of vintage. She followed this look with a 50s turquoise and coral striped dress, sourced from vintage hilson willowand a 60s orange beaded handbag by Wayne Taylor in Jamaica.
While Kate is known for repeating looks from her own wardrobe, it’s great to see her add vintage (as well as sustainability-conscious brands) into the mix. Long may it continue.
