Kate Middleton's Culottes Are an Unexpected Twist on Athleisure
Fitness, but make it fashion.
Forget yoga pants, Kate Middleton has a new solution for dressing business casual.
On Wednesday morning, the duchess visited Olympic Park's London Stadium wearing a non-traditional take on athleisure with a pair of green culottes. The pants were comfy enough for her to run track, but looked polished when she paired them with a matching scoop-neck top and a navy Smythe blazer while meeting with SportsAid athletes and their parents.
In the beauty department, Kate also came prepared. When she first arrived to the venue, she sported her signature bouncy blowout, but, before hitting the pavement, she pulled her hair back into a low-slung ponytail. Meanwhile, a pair of white and green striped sneakers by Marks and Spencer, emerald earrings, and a gold necklace provided the finishing touches to her look.
Less than 24 hours prior, Kate went the opposite end of the fashion spectrum and wore the most fancy pair of sparkly Jimmy Choo pumps to attend a performance of Dear Evan Hansen with Prince William. For their glitzy theater date, the duchess went the full tilt in terms of glam with a rhinestone-button dress, her sapphire engagement ring, and dangling diamond earrings.
Is there any look Kate can't pull off? Short answer: No.
