Kate Middleton may be the owner of a great many blazers, but she has a couple of favorites that she tends to wear again and again—and these are usually from Zara. In this way, and in this way alone, the Princess of Wales and I are the same.
For another World Mental Health Day event on October 12, Kate pulled a tried-and-true cobalt blue Zara blazer. The princess wore the tailored, double-breasted jacket over a white camisole and straight-leg jeans. For a slightly sporty touch, she added another Princess Kate wardrobe staple: Veja sneakers in white and metallic rose gold. Intriguingly, the only jewelry she wore was her sapphire engagement ring.
Kate has been seen in this particular jacket on a number of public occasions. In May of 2021, she wore the blazer with a matching skirt on a visit to Scotland, perhaps so as to evoke a similar suit once worn by Princess Diana. Also in May 2021, Kate wore this Zara blazer to conduct a special interview with a midwife on International Day of the Midwife, per Harper’s Bazaar. As for the Veja sneakers, Kate’s been seen in this exact pair almost too many times to count.
Basically, this outfit is the Kate Middleton Casual Friday starter pack.
