Kate Middleton Wearing Red LK Bennett Coat 2016

Kate Middleton Proves the Belted Coat Is Back, Baby

For their first joint engagement of 2016, Kate Middleton and Prince William attended the Search and Rescue Force Disbandment Parade at RAF Valley. While it was an important day for the royal pair, Kate was clearly the one who stood out in her cherry-red L.K. Bennett coat. This isn't the first time she's worn the design — she premiered it in 2011, then slipped into it again one year later. But we're quite glad she chose 2016 to bring it back. After all, the crisp trench-style jacket features a wide attached belt, and that's a trend we're already spotting on plenty of Fall '16 runways.

Kate pulled back her hair and twisted it into a Lock & Co. cap that she accessorized perfectly with chocolate suede pumps and gloves. Adding shimmer with Mappin & Webb Empress drop earrings, Kate was glowing from every angle, only convincing us further to shop the trend she was sporting. Read on to admire the wide-belted coat, both on the duchess and on the catwalk, then shop some bold picks available now.
