Last weekend, we saw the Duchess of Cambridge celebrate St. Patrick’s day in a green felt Gina Foster “Meribel” hat. Described by the designer as a “classic velour felt beret hat with stylised felt bow trim”, we have seen Kate step out in this piece three times, each paired with a different coat. I think this trio of pairings deserves a closer, comparative look:
Look 1: With a green and navy tartan Alexander McQueen coat worn for Christmas Day in 2013
Look 2: With a textured green wool Hobbs coat at the St Patrick’s Day parade at Mons Barracks on March 17, 2014
Look 3: With a green wool Catherine Walker coat with attached faux fur collar and cuffs worn for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade at Cavalry Barracks in Hounslow
The looks are distinctive and varied, not only because one coat is obviously a maternity coat. I’m fascinated how the different shades and textures of green on the coat plays against the hat and am curious- what pairing do you like best?
