Officially, she's Duchess of Cambridge, but the only rule that's of our concern is Kate Middelton's reign over the very chic coat. And perhaps owning to her homeland's cool climate, Kate puts her collection to great use frequently. For years, Kate has been partial to wearing colorful statement coats and she's managed to find gorgeous outerwear in nearly every color under the sun. Most recently, Kate picked — appropriately — a royal blue Reiss piece to wear at a rugby event with her husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry. The hue was so stunning, we imagine few people were able to keep their eyes on the action on the field.
We've learned a lot from Kate Middleton's style, but lesson number one may be: never underestimate the power of a beautiful coat.
