Kate Middleton’s Vintage Blue Chanel Blazer Is A Classic From The 1990s

The Princess of Wales made a foray into the world of vintage earlier this year, opting for a series of pre-loved pieces while touring the Caribbean in March. But today, the royal arguably stepped out in her best vintage look to date, in the form of a Chanel tweed jacket in cobalt blue, dating back to 1995.

You can’t go far wrong with vintage Chanel. The Princess teamed the double-breasted jacket (which was originally worn down the runway by ’90s super Claudia Schiffer) with a pair of black tailored trousers and matching suede pumps for a visit to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Understated yet chic, it’s Kate’s working wardrobe at its best.

It turns out the Princess is actually a long-standing vintage fan, with the royal debuting a red YSL jacket – which she’s had since her university days at St Andrews – while departing Belize earlier this year. She followed up that look with a striped turquoise and coral dress from the ’50s, sourced from Willow Hilson Vintage, and a ’60s orange beaded handbag by Wayne Taylor while in Jamaica.

While Kate is known for repeating looks from her own wardrobe, it‘s great to see her adding vintage (as well as sustainably-minded brands) into the mix, too. Long may it continue.
