It’s no secret that Kate Middleton is a serial outfit repeater. The Duchess of Cambridge has always had a knack for recycling her favorite outfits and we love her for it! And because she’s constantly in the public eye, it rarely escapes our notice whenever she chooses to re-wear a certain piece on separate occasions. The last one that specifically caught our attention was a purple Gucci blouse—which she even wore backwards, mind you!
Ever the fashion icon, the duchess first wore the Italian fashion house’s luxe pussy-bow silk blouse for a visit to Henry Fawcett Children’s Centre in London back in March 2019:
Just recently, for the video on "5 Big Questions" survey—which was posted on the royal couple’s official Instagram account—Kate was once again seen wearing the exact same top:
Who can blame her for outfit-repeating, though? After all, it's a really chic blouse that looks especially flattering on her! Still, there's a slight detail you might have missed: Interestingly, the duchess actually wore it completely backwards!
For reference, here’s how the top is actually meant be worn according to Gucci. Note that the buttons are supposed to be at the back:
Nevertheless, the Duchess of Cambridge still looked stunning. Not to mention, it’s always refreshing to see how real fashionistas can style a certain piece in a different way and be able to own it—especially if that someone is wife to the future king of England.
FYI, the exact Gucci blouse has since sold out since Kate was photographed wearing it! But just in case you wanna cop her look, the good news is that a similar version is still available in flamingo pink or sage green. There's quite a hefty price tag attached to it, though (but you should've expected that the moment you spotted it on a royal).
