The Duchess of Cambridge’s cream Alexander McQueen coat is a piece of exquisite tailoring and it’s no surprise she has worn it to several high profile occasions. Interestingly, on each of the coat’s three outings, she has paired it with a hat from a different designer. Here is a closer look at each pairing (scroll through each photo to see multiple views of each hat):
Look #1: With a cream straw beret base percher hat with silk flowers and straw twists by Jane Taylor, worn for Princess Charlotte’s christening on July 5, 2015
Look #2: With a white straw oval saucer slice hat with domed crown and large pink garden roses by Philip Treacy worn June 11, 2016 for Trooping the Colour
Even though the hats are nearly identical in colour, they make for three very distinct ensembles in combination with this coat. I recognise that it’s not exactly fair to compare hats worn to celebratory versus memorial events but will go ahead anyway and ask- which hat do you prefer with this coat?
