On Friday, the duchess visited St. Andrew’s, the school she attended from 1986-1995, and paid homage to the academy’s signature tartan and forest green in a plaid coatdress by McQ, a brand from the late Alexander McQueen. Of course, it was just a teensy bit fancier than the standard-issue gear, especially paired with Kate’s favorite Aquatalia high-heeled boots, black tights and a perfectly blown-out 'do.
Much has been said about the royal’s new cut since she debuted her face-framing bangs and long layers earlier this month, but we think this is the best it’s looked yet. And that’s saying a lot since by the looks of things she spent much of her day running around the grass playing field hockey with the kids. In heels, natch.
