every time Kate makes an appearance, everyone always loves to see what she’s wearing and where they can get her look.While the Duchess noticeably experimented with her style and wore new labels last year, particularly on the tours of India and Canada, will she dig out some wardrobe classics from the last few years for her royal engagements?Kate Middleton kick starts the new year in a regal royal blue Eponine London coat dressKate has sported some gorgeous workwear looks in the past and she got things off to a bold start this year with her blue Eponine London coat to visit the Anna Freud centre and an emerald green Hobbs suit for a tour of East Anglia Children’s Hospices.Here we look back on some of her best office inspired style and wardrobe staples.Dresses We’d love to have a whole wardrobe of dresses like Kate’s and she’s certainly spoilt for choice in that department. We also saw her in it again during the 2014 tour of Australia and New Zealand.The belt cinches her in at the waist and a cap sleeve like this is perfect for the summer months, if you don’t feel comfortable wearing a strappy or sleeveless dress for the office.But if you do work in a busy, fast paced environment,

She wore the snorkel blue Detroit dress twice in 2014 and the three quarter length sleeves and notch collar neckline make it a perfect transitional piece. We wouldn’t be surprised if we saw her in it again within the next couple of months.We all know the Duchess loves a little red dress and she wore the brand’s fit and flare Cayla dress to Wimbledon in 2015. Similar to the Eugenia style we saw her in last year, she added a touch of print with her DVF leopard clutch.While most of these dresses have sold out, LK Bennett’s latest collection features the Vivi Roca style which we can totally see Kate wearing.Kate Middleton’s love for Alexander McQueen: 5 reasons why the British label is her go to designerJust like us non royals, Kate has a few dresses which are suitable for work and play.
