Get the Look: 5 Affordable Alternatives to Kate Middleton’s Chic Scarlet Coat
Copy the duchess' iconic style for less! And yes, these winter coats are just as stylish as her pricier peacoat.
With her famously colorful fashion choices, from that stunning red off-the-shoulder Alexander McQueen dress to the blue poppy-patterned Prada we loved, Kate Middleton is clearly not afraid to rock vibrant hues. Her latest bold color choice: a scarlet Boden peacoat ($330; bodenusa.com) that she wore to an event to commemorate the opening of the Great Ormond Street Hospital on Wednesday, according to InStyle.
The ruffle details on the hem of the sleeves and the cute buttons make this piece a standout, and here's the thing: The coat’s cheery hue is flattering on pretty much everyone. Below, we've selected a few of our favorite options, including a kid-sized coat for little girls who want the royal treatment, too.
