Why Kate Middleton matches outfits with Princess Charlotte – how to shop the looks
“Instead, Princess Charlotte takes centre stage and sets the tone in her fabulous rich forest green coat from Amaia to which Kate matches her accessories, including her fascinator, bag and court shoes.
“It’s at times like this that we can see what a trend setter young Princess Charlotte is, even at four years old!”
Princess Charlotte’s adorable button-up coat, matches perfectly with Kate’s accessories, and Prince William has a blue tie on while Prince George has a pale blue shirt on.
Katie added: “It’s also lovely to see Kate wearing an elegant coat by Catherine Walker, a designer favoured by her late mother-in-law.
How can families recreate the look at home?
The stylist explained: “There are various ways in which you can replicate this with your own children, without looking to the curtains à la Maria from The Sound of Music. A chic and subtle approach to the trend, favoured by Kate and Charlotte, is the use of a tonal colour palette.
“First identify the piece, whether it be a garment or accessory, to set the tone and build on the assortment with subtle variations in pattern, texture or print.
“Alternatively, you can nail the look with ease when buying into brands that offer mini-me items such as Boden and Crew Clothing; both of which Stitch Fix carry for women and men, so a great starting point for families.
“If you are going for this more overt option, it’s best to opt for statement knits, striped tees or even swimwear in the warmer months. There is nothing subtle about this take on the trend so the key is to wear it with confidence and conviction.
“If you fancy making some homemade Christmas cards this year, why not embarrass the kids and capture the whole family in matching Christmas knits or even pyjama sets?
“Social activities may be somewhat limited this festive season, so it is a great time to display some unity and togetherness with matching outfits and an abundance of festive cheer – I think we could all do with the extra joviality this year!”
