The Kate Middleton Style Hack You Need to Try Before Winter’s Over

When it comes to wardrobe heroes, it's easy to see what Kate Middleton relies on: perfectly tailored, utterly sophisticated outerwear. The Duchess wears hers as others do sleek dresses, leaving them snugly fastened so they are the look. And because she's an ace re-wearer, she's found the world's easiest styling hack for making them appear new. It's a trick she's pulled out before, and she just gave us another example with today's outfit, picking the same green Sportmax coat she wore on Christmas Day for a quick trip to Scotland.

In Edinburgh for a tennis event

Pretty, right? She finished it off with a skinny belt this go-around that wasn't needed to keep the coat closed or in place, but instead helped it feel more dress-like than, well, a coat (important if, like Kate, you're planning on keeping the piece on through an entire event). When the topper came out to play for Christmas it was finished with a totally different belt: a thick, croc-like style that matched the coat's forest green hue. The thin belt we saw today looks like the one that came with the coat (see it here), which means it was the December look that really had Kate thinking outside of the box.

Kate pulled the same trick with this L.K. Bennett coat (don't let the different lighting fool you). When she wore it earlier this month it was with the original belt that came with it, but for a 2011 trip to Denmark it was paired with a statement belt, creating a chic, bespoke feel.

To try the trick IRL, work with what you've got: Pull out any lightweight, non-bulky coats and whatever classic belts you've got stashed in the closet. Try likes with likes, buckling your more casual belts on with weekend-ready coats (like a leather number with your favorite parka); cinch ladylike jackets with prim styles. The accessory's magic powers work for warmer weather too, when you can switch up the feel of any of your dresses by finishing with a different belt.

Psst—want a sneak-peek at the outfit Kate picked for under her coat today? While it's true that the Duchess typically leaves her outerwear done up, never revealing a look at her actual outfit, we got a little glimpse when she exited her car. It seems like her black turtleneck sweater was tucked into a black and white knee-length houndstooth skirt. Preppy princess!

Kate Middleton Wows in All Blue at the RAF Air Cadets Anniversary Ceremony

Kate Middleton has done it again! "It" being wearing a virtually flawless coat-and-fascinator ensemble, of course.

Kate Middleton Wows in All Blue at the RAF Air Cadets Anniversary Ceremony

The duchess stepped out for an event commemorating the RAF Air Cadets' 75th anniversary at St Clement Danes Church in London earlier today and looked as picture-perfect as ever in a trim baby blue coat, which she deftly paired with navy pumps and a dark blue fascinator. We know that Kate looks amazing in blue (or just about any color, if we're being honest), but the three shades in this ensemble are particularly eye-catching.

Her soft makeup worked to complement the look—but no word on if she was wearing that new Marc Jacobs lipstick named after Princess Charlotte.

Rihanna Spends the Night Out in New York City Wearing the Winter Coat of Our Dreams

Rihanna is wearing the winter coat of our dreams, and we're not afraid to say it. The star stepped out in New York City on Nov. 21 with rumored new beau Travis Scott, wearing a casual ripped jeans and silk tank get-up that wouldn't have been half so monumental without the luxe, camel-colored coat she wore with it. The fur-trimmed jacket is the picture of warmth (really, we feel cozy just looking at it).

The piece is also the sort of jacket we'd sling over a little black dress (totally à la Beyoncé), although we do like RiRi's approach to dressed-down chic for a date night in New York (the outfit also fits in line with her "no sexy sh-t" mantra). The couple, who have reportedly been an item since fashion week, stopped by Jay Z's 40/40 Club before heading to another NYC hotspot.

Rihanna has been busier than usual (and her usual is pretty busy): She's launching a new Los Angeles-based beauty talent agency, Fr8me, that will represent hairstylists, makeup artists, manicurists, photographers and fashion stylists. (Judging by the 27-year-old's directorial success at Puma and with her Baby Goth Punk sock line, we can bet this new venture will be just as successful with her creative input behind it).

But back to that coat: It's veritably all the winter outerwear inspo we need. And happily, with Black Friday and Cyber Monday just around the corner, the look might be within our reach.
