For over a decade, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, has left us awestruck by her seemingly effortless elegance and ability to make just about anything sophisticated. From $65 sneakers and skinny jeans, to tennis-inspired tracksuits, the trendsetting royal is just so good at, well, trendsetting.
Her latest look is one we’ll definitely be copying ASAP. On a recent trip to Scotland, Middleton traded in her usual polished look for something a bit more casual and autumnal: black skinny jeans, a black turtleneck, combat boots that Instyle reports she’s been wearing since 2019 and, our new favorite fall staple, a green quilted vest.
While the black-on-black look is undeniably chic, it’s this cozy vest that makes us want to copy the look piece for piece. Naturally, Middleton’s exact vest designed by Ganni is sold out (not to mention, a whopping $345). But that’s not stopping us—we’ve rounded up the best dupes for Middleton’s quilted vest that we’re rocking this fall. They’re lightweight and warm, and if they’re fit for a royal, then they’re fit for us, too.
