The royal sisters-in-law are constantly spotted rocking coats that become the focal point of their looks. From polished, dressy designs to casual, throw-on styles, Kate and Meghan truly understand the power of a chic coat.
Since it’s the middle of winter (and many coats are now on sale ahead of new spring releases), we did some digging and found toppers that channel the top styles the duchesses wear in heavy rotation. Think elegant A-line swing coats that are one of Kate’s faves and waterfall drape wrap silhouettes that are a staple for Meghan.
Ahead, shop ET Style’s selects of winter coats, inspired by the royal style stars.
Although Kate and Meghan have distinct personal styles, the sisters-in-law share a love for classics such as the camel coat. They both wore the essential within weeks of each other in January. We can see why -- the versatile color is easy to pair with many outfits and the sleek wool design never fails to appear elegant.
For more casual appearances, Kate and Meghan rely on a puffer to keep warm, especially when outdoors. The insulated topper pairs well with skinny jeans (another royal wardrobe favorite) and comfy footwear like flats and boots.
A waterfall wrap coat with draped lapels and tie belt is perhaps the number one coat style in Meghan’s closet. She owns various colors from gray to red and often wears it with a dress or a sweater-and-skirt combo. The waterfall coat reads more effortless and modern in comparison to coats with the standard notched or peaked lapel.
Kate’s looks often embrace tradition and polished military-inspired coats rendered in dark green, gray and navy are a go-to for the duchess. Flap pockets, antique-esque buttons and piping are details that imbue the utilitarian vibe.
The Duchess of Cambridge has a penchant for coats that feature an A-line, swing skirt silhouette. The feminine style is a dressy option for special occasions. Kate has worn swing coats in an array of colors from double-breasted designs to ones with faux fur collars.
When Meghan needs a lightweight layer, you can bet a trench coat is involved. Perfect for transitional weather, the versatile beige trench is easy to throw on during the day. The Los Angeles-born former actress loves it so much, she has worn sleeveless dress versions in warmer months.
