Kate premiered the green 'Sinead' skirt suit by Hobbs and a pretty blouse by French label, Gerard Darel. Click to read more >

IF I WERE KATE'S STYLIST
I'm sure many of you would agree that having the role of Kate's stylist would be the best job in the world! Seriously, how much fun would it be to help Kate shop and experiment with new looks!? In this occasional segment, I showcase my daydream outfits for the Duchess!
Whilst I loved the individual pieces of Kate's recent outfit, the overall look was a little too prim for my personal taste. I would love to see Kate rework the jacket with a pair of fine wool trousers (which I'm dying to see her wear!) and a patterned scarf to bring cohesion and sophistication to the whole look.
SHOP THE OUTFIT:
JACKET: Hobbs Sinead jacket (sold out) - shop similar
TOP: Jaeger Silk Pleated V-Neck Blouse
PANTS: Chloé slim-leg stretch-wool trousers
SCARF: Emilio Pucci Printed Silk Scarf
EARRINGS: Kiki Morganite earrings
BAG: Dolce & Gabbana Miss Sicily Leather Top-Handle Satchel
SHOES: Gianvito Rossi Gianvito 105 Black Suede Pumps
Each week I like to devote a little time browsing the websites of Kate's favourite brands and designers.
This week the Duchess continued her run of experimenting with new labels. She debuted the 'Josephine' silk shirt by Gerard Darel, a French fashion boutique that embodies French elegance and takes inspiration from iconic figures such as Jackie Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe. The brand's design philosophy resonates with Kate's style so we may see her in any one of these Duchess-worthy looks by Gerard Darel in the near future:
