Kate Middleton on trend in tartan

Wears Alexander McQueen on official visit

Kate Middleton wore a beautiful Alexander McQueen Black Watch tartan dress coat while on a visit on her old school, St Andrew's, in Pangbourne, Berkshire today.

The Duchess of Cambridge teamed the coat with her old faithful black knee-high ‘Rhumba’ boots by Aquatalia by Marvin K and the sweeping fringe she debuted this week.

The coat is a fashion-savvy choice for the Duchess: tartan is big trend for this season, having had quite a presence on the autumn/winter 2012 catwalks at Chloe, Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren, as well as Alexander McQueen.

Since she commissioned McQueen creative director Sarah Burton to design her wedding dress, the label has been a go-to label for the Duchess’s wardrobe, whether for public outings or red carpet events. Long may the stylish partnership continue.
