Kate Middleton is On-Trend for Fall in Burgundy Skirt Suit: Trendspotting

Kate Middleton's Island Style
The Duchess colorful looks from the South-Pacific Diamond Jubilee tour.
For her first official public appearance since returning from her stylish Southeast Asia Diamond Jubilee tour, Kate Middleton sported a more seasonal look while accompanying Prince William to Middle Temple in London for the launch of a scholarship program in their name.

The picture of ladylike elegance, the Duchess of Cambridge could not have been more on-trend for fall in her two-piece skirt suit.

Not only was the Duchess wearing one of fall’s hot hues, but monochromatic suits are another big trend now, as are double breasted jackets and flared skirts.

To transition her wardrobe into autumn, Middleton swapped the nude pumps she’s been wearing recently for noir extras, including a black lace cami that peeked out from underneath her jacket.  Black tights allowed the princess to get away with a shorter hemline than we typically see her wearing.

The jacket’s pockets and ribbing on the skirt added rich texture to Middleton’s suit for a more modern take on the proper ladies-who-lunch uniform.

Taking a break from the British designers the Duchess typically dons — Jenny Packham, L.K. Bennett, Alexander McQueen — Middleton’s suit is by French label Paule Ka.
