Could this look be more perfect for the holidays?

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is reminding everyone that tartan can be festive yet chic. The former Kate Middleton stepped out in a midi-length, plaid skirt as she and Prince William hosted a Christmas party at Kensington Palace.

The pleated skirt was from one of her go-to designers, Emilia Wickstead. She paired it with a cropped cardigan from the Scottish brand Brora, as well as sleek, black boots.

It’s basically the perfect look for a daytime holiday party, at a palace or otherwise.

The royal couple looked relaxed as they strolled the grounds of Kensington Palace on their way to the festivities, and they laughed in surprise when a snow machine started blowing as they passed.
